The Chillest Halloween Playlist That Absolutely Will Not Scare You

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

For those about to trick or treat, may your bags be filled with Reese's. For those about to stay at home with a White Russian and a delivery cheesesteak, you are seen, too.

We made a playlist for the Halloween homebodies.

It's a haunty-jaunty, spooky-kooky, moody-broody selection of Halloween-adjacent music handpicked to help pass the awkward pauses between strangers demanding candy.

This playlist won't make you cool, but it will keep you chill. Plus, it's 90 percent cornball- (and gluten-) free. And it won't scare the bejesus out of you if you're home alone.

Do you watch Stranger Things in the daytime? This playlist is for you. Is your violence threshold just below 1970s Starsky & Hutch? Get listening. Was the last horror film you watched on VHS? Music to our ears.

Besides, everyone knows the true stuff of nightmares is that the next generation of Angelenos will be judging your worth entirely on the awesomeness of your candy tonight.

And, while your're waiting for the bell to ring, go ahead and brush up before next week's midterm election to avoid the terror of not voting.

Boo. (A gentle boo.)
