Sounds of Darkness

I love spooky music of all kinds ... novelty, sound effects, ambient, ghost stories, rock, and whatever mixes I can find. Here, I review them and post links to whoever is out there sharing them.

  1. Spotoween


    I’m just going to keep going through the playlists that Spotify suggests when I search “Halloween”. But I’m going to be a little bit picky.

    “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2014” Playlist (27 followers) - Much of the music is NOT Halloween-related. So I’ll skip it.
