It’s officially my favorite time of year, October! Which means it’s time for a new Halloween music post! If you haven’t checked out my Halloween playlist from 2012, you need to go do that. Because you’ll see I like picking songs that make people think “what’s the connection?”. So, not all are truly “Halloween Music”. But, they do have a scary, monster, devil, magic theme.
Remember that playlists don’t need to be cliche, or traditional. In other words, can you think outside the box. So, embrace the strange obscure! Your Halloween playlist can be totally spooky and yet subtle. Disclosure: Links in this post may be affiliate links.
Halloween music 2013
Most true traditional Halloween Music tends to be slower. Therefore heavy resistance, or climbs. So use some artistic licence! That is to say that if a song is lacking in energy, look for a remix, or cover. Or simply search the title on Amazon music for alternatives
Mick Lion: Beautiful Monster (Sunny Dee Remix) (5:46) – During this song we warm up! It’s fun and upbeat but shares a dark side of relationships. [Amazon link]
The Prodigy: Run with the wolves (4:25) – Can I just say I LOVE this song. During the first 45 seconds, get feel the tempo and the resistance. Then PUSH the resistance up and keep the tempo for 30 seconds. Repeat every 30 seconds adding a little more resistance each time! [Amazon Link]
Rob Zombie: Living Dead Girl (3.22) – Yeah, time for a hard heavy climb in the saddle for 3 minutes. Warning lyrics are labeled as “explicit”. [Amazon Link]
Britney Spears: Toxic [Armand Van Helden Remix] (6:25) – Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble. We’re doubling down with some sprints, keep some resistance and go crazy for 20-30 second sprints. [Amazon Link]
Drowning Pool: let the bodies hit the floor (3:25) – It’s dark and some people aren’t gonna like it. But, I love it. It pushes people out their comfort zone regarding music! Pump up the resistance and come out the saddle for climbing. [Amazon Link]
Usher: Scream (3:55) – Sit back into the saddle with medium resistance. Pop up out the saddle in the chorus. Making sure to add resistance before you come up. After that, take it off when you come down. [Amazon Link]
Police: Every little thing she does is magic (4:20) – Keep the resistance low, for an easy break. Then, sprint in the chorus [Amazon Link]
Skrillex: Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites (3.35) – In the saddle for a medium climb. Then add some tougher resistance at 45 seconds for a faster push. At the 2.50 mark you come back down to the saddle. During which you’ release the tension and ride it out easy. [Amazon Link]
Janet Jackson: Black Cat (4:32) – To sum it up, hard and heavy! That is to say, 70% resistance while climbing in the saddle! [Amazon Link]
Linkin Park: Crawling (3:29) – More heavy climbs. So, add more resistance than black cat, and come into third for a BIG PUSH up that hill. If you feel evil ADD resistance during each chorus, you’ll be crawling out the spin studio. [Amazon Link]
Republica: Drop Dead Gorgeous (4:31) – Easy sprints in the saddle. Lower the resistance and in the chorus, SPRINT like the devil is chasing you. Keep it easy though. It’s the recovery from ten minutes of climbs. Plus don’t you want the devil to catch you? [Amazon Link]
Kesha: Die Young (3:34) – Jumps. Honestly, I don’t know what it is with Kesha, but I like her tempos for jumps. Maybe 8’s in the verse, 4 or 2 in the chorus. [Amazon Link]
B.O.B: Magic (3:16) – Ok, you’ve had fun, now it’s time to get the freak out. But first, reduce all the resistance to a flat road so we can cool down! [Amazon Link]
Katy Perry: Ghost (3:23) – After the climb, the sprints, the intervals, the work, the fun, then it’s time to stretch. [Amazon Link]
