D//E Playlist: 31 Songs Of Halloween 2017

23.10.17



Every year since the inception of D//E we did a countdown, according to which we were presenting a Halloween-themed via daily posts throughout the month of October, leading to the 31st. This year we tried a different approach. Due to the site's growth and the extended attention it all around requires, it wouldn't have been possible to do write-ups on a daily basis, but as we wouldn't give up on the tradition, we decided to have this year's 31 Songs Of Halloween presented all at once in the form of a playlist. It certainly isn't the same without the thrill of the write-ups, but the music would be still be there to be listened to.

This year's selection includes more new (or recent) songs than ever alongside the timeless classics of acts like John Lee Hooker, Tom Waits and The Louvin Brothers. A big chunk of the playlist's new blood is represented through the ever-growing Synthwave scene and some of our favorites of its acts, like Confrontational, Perturbator, Dance With The Dead, The Midnight and Carpenter Brut. Naturally, we kept on with the habit of featuring Misfits, The Meteors and The Cramps all of whom have been included in those lists every year. Also this marks the first year not to feature an Alice Cooper song in the list, but that was deliberately decided as an objection against the below par album he released this year.

As a bonus feature we thought it would be nice to have an additional playlist of all the tracks we've included in the countdowns the previous years, and so we did compile Three Years Worth Of Countdown To Halloween, the grandest playlist we have compiled so far. It includes 78 of the 93 (31x3) songs that we featured in our month-long Halloween specials from 2014 to 2016, hence everything that is available on Spotify at the moment, which make an impressive amount of 5 hours worth of music. There's a list of the further 15 tracks that are not accessible for good measure.

Watch out for our Halloween-themed headers like the one we're wearing at the time this post is being published, because they will be frequently changing until October 31st.
