“Loving it” Tunefruit Weekly Stock Music Playlist for September 30th

Tunefruit-The-Hotness2

It’s beginning to look a bit like autumn these days, and you know what that means: it’s almost time for my personal favorite holiday, Halloween! It’s a time when everything gets a little more creepy, and the full moon spells supernatural trouble for us mortals. Plus, and most importantly, there’s scores of halloween candy. So sit back with some cinnamon hot chocolate and a slice of pumpkin pie, and check out these spooky stock music tracks.

Gears In MotionFrancesco Giovannangelo

I don’t want to invite any uncanny comparisons here, but eat your heart out, Burton. It’s a track that’s full of halloween spirit, complete with creepy music box and scurrying strings. Just remember, it’s not a party without the Pumpkin King.

Haunted CircusZevWMusic

There’s one blustery evening in autumn when the wind howls and the trees moan, and all the ghoulish guys and ghostly gals meet for their annual halloween ball. The elegant undead dancers glide under the pale moon, and the skeletons rattle their bones. Don’t mind the zombies; they’ll just shuffle around, but they do their best. Won’t you join them on this frightful night?

It’s getting spooky around here, and all the ghouls and goblins are coming out to play, causing all kinds of mischief and mayhem. Sure, those puckish little gremlins are entertaining at first, but pretty soon they’ll be wrecking the whole neighborhood. In the meantime, this aptly-named track makes a great backdrop for all your halloween misadventures.

Evil Dark Metal Alex Paul

Under the red moon a dark rider on a pale horse rises from the fires of hell, standing ready with an army of undead. Alright, so I’m being a bit dramatic, but what’s halloween without a little brash embellishment? This track certainly calls to mind a sense of dread and doom, perfect for your over the top bad guys.

Ghost HuntersGuidoNegraszus

It’s like CSI: Halloween edition, perfect for investigating all sorts of ghostly hauntings and strange supernatural occurrences. Things that go bump in the night better beware, because we won’t rest until these mysteries are put to bed. Well, not me anyways; I’ll hang back here and “supervise” while you guys check out that haunted house. I’m not scared or anything, I’m just allergic to cobwebs, dust, and terrifying monsters. You got this.

The DJ vs The VampireFoldySongs

Bring halloween into the future with this banging drum and bass track, perfect for fighting cartoon zombies and animated ghouls alike. Whether you’re a time-traveling duo fighting space vampires on the moon, or a crypt-diver facing down a reawakened mummy in retro-futuristic New York (why not?), this track will keep your blood racing and guns blazing long enough to outlast any post-apocalyptic nightmares. What time is it? Zombie killin’ time.

FearsAcousticMusicProductions

On edge yet? Well I am, and let me tell you this track isn’t calming my nerves at all. It’s eerie, discordant, and just plain unsettling. It evokes a sense of confusion and bewilderment, and as the piano drifts and clangs around, you really get the feeling that something isn’t right here. Is that little girl in the corner supposed to be here? Who’s blood is that wall covered in? My invitation says dinner party, but I’m pretty sure this is a haunted house. I did not sign up for this.

Tunefruit’s Guide to Halloween Stock Music! Spooky!

Tunefruit-Daily-Freshpicks

Many people know Halloween as the yearly festival where small children impersonate sociopaths in order to scam candy from their neighbors (jk…ok, not jk), but did you know that Halloween also has a rich musical history as well? That’s right, music is as big a part of the holiday as candy, paganism or psychopathy!

Now that we’ve established how important music is to Halloween, lets get into the different types of Halloween music…

Whether you’re licensing music for your Halloween-themed videos, or just trying to get into the holiday spirit, it’s crucial that you understand the differences between the three main types of Halloween tracks.

Halloween Track Type I: Kooky and Spoooooky

This variety of Halloween music is fun and quirky- it’s full of playful energy with just a hint of scary. This is the kind of track you might play while you and your kids are decorating the house before the trick or treaters arrive, or while putting together their costumes for the big night.

Halloween Track Type II: Magical Wizarding World

This type of track grabs you by the hand, and takes you right into the dark underground tunnels and faraway castle laboratories where you might find Halloween characters like ancient ghosts, terrible monsters, or even Wayne Brady! These Halloween tracks are just a bit more serious and imposing than your Kooky and Spooky tracks. They’re full of magic and wonder, with just a hint of menace.

Halloween Track Type III: The Terror is Real!

With this final selection of tracks, we are not playing around anymore: these tracks are 100% pure horror! “Oh my god! We’re trapped and there’s no way out!”…is what you might say if you were a character in a truly scary horror film, or if you were forced to watch an entire season of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta. Either way, this type of Halloween track is sure to make you scream.

You’re just listening to some frighteningly realistic Halloween tracks. Enjoy!
