What a hell of a year it’s been, emphasis on hell. I’m not sure there’s anything I could write that would be spookier than 2020 but it’s finally that special time of year: Halloween! In my very biased opinion, the best holiday there is.
At the start of this year, the birth of a new decade, October seemed bright. Halloween on a Saturday. Lined up perfectly with daylight savings time for an extra hour of spookiness. Not just a full moon, but a blue moon on Halloween night. We should have known it was too good to be true.
The pandemic may have thrown a wet towel on in-person parties and door-to-door trick-or-treating, but there’s still plenty of Halloween fun to go around. Carving jack-o-lanterns, checking out the neighbor’s decorations, Halloween costumes, zoom parties with friends, scary movie marathons, and an excuse to binge more candy than any reasonable adult should consume.
If you’re having trouble finding the spooky spirit, we got your medicine for you right here. The Lanky Halloween 2020 mix, hot off the imaginary presses. Thanks go to my fellow lankers, new and old, who helped contribute to this year’s Halloween mix (special shout out to Hoggy and Mattt).
And if nearly 3 and a half hours of spooky vibes isn’t enough for you, check out our spooky playlists from year’s past. Lanky Halloween 2018 has 31 true gems and in 2019 we built out a 169-song behemoth with 13 spooky stories comprised of 13 songs each. Have a happy (socially-distant) Halloween you lanky bastards!
