While Western countries are opening their windows to crisp, cold air tinged with the smell of fall leaves and campfires, we’re still feeling the heat. At around 37 degrees in October, Dubai doesn’t feel very autumnal, and never will no matter what time of year it is. And yet we still yearn for cozy sweaters, and curling up with a good book when the day turns dark early.
Just because the weather is bleh doesn’t mean you can’t get into the spooky season, proffered by the coming attraction of Halloween. Whether you’re winding your way through 30 days of horror films on Netflix, planning an elaborate costume for an office Halloween contest, or simply lighting a pumpkin spice candle, Savoir Flair’s October “Spooky Season” playlist will get you in the mood for thrills and chills.
This time around, we’re having some fun with things. Instead of being genre-consistent, we’re splitting the playlist in half. Keen ears will know exactly the moment the mood shifts, brought to you by the brilliant score of Netflix’s Stranger Things. From pop tunes with eerie subject matter by the likes of Billie Eilish, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga to classic creepy songs from Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and The Doors, this is one spooky playlist that is anything but predictable.
