A Killer Playlist for the Spookiest Time of Year

Turn the volume up to 11 while you celebrate the scariest time of year and jam to these spooky Halloween bops.

Halloween is just around the corner—time to figure out what costume you’re wearing, check out some haunted houses, decorate with lots of spiders, and binge-watch Alfred Hitchcock and Tim Burton movies with your friends.

You may also find yourself at a Halloween party, and you’ll need a solid playlist in the background. Even if parties aren’t your scene, you could use a great soundtrack for all your autumn adventures. CollegeXpress is here to help!

It's an honor for me to be writing to share a little about my experience with CollegeXpress. I've been using CollegeXpress for about a year now, and the reason why I chose it is because it provides astonishing scholarships for every student around the globe. Besides that, this organization dispenses all the information necessary to help students get to college. CollegeXpress has helped me have an easier experience with applying to colleges and choosing the best fit for myself.

CollegeXpress helped me gain interest in many colleges/universities and many scholarships. I would say the most helpful thing CollegeXpress has done for me is sending me emails that tell me certain types of colleges are interested in me as well as emails about scholarships that I can look at and possibly apply for.
