Playlists

Some are spooky, some are campy and some are just really good -- but none should be overlooked when compiling your ultimate trick-or-treat mood music.

Forget the witch decorations and the viral-ready jack-o-lanterns: No Halloween is complete without a killer playlist. For 2014, we compiled a little bit of everything -- gothic guitars, stuttering electronics, filthy hip-hop hypotheticals -- for a 10-song soundtrack for your undead endeavors. Prime your Spotify account with these tracks to make yourself the star DJ of this year's Halloween parties.

With Labor Day marking the unofficial end of summer, we bring you the season's hottest tracks from 2014's hottest months.

This time last year, two tunes sat deadlocked in the battle to achieve the coveted "song of the summer" title: "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell and "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk, Nile Rogers and Pharrell. Though both utilized undeniably catchy hooks and leg-shaking rhythms, "Get Lucky" emerged the clear winner, especially given Thicke's unfortunately misogynistic way with words.

In honor of Aaron Carter's After Party at The Westcott on Sunday, The NewsHouse staff compiled a list of our favorite songs from the late '90s and early 2000s.

Joseph DiDomizio, lead producer: "President of What?" by Death Cab for Cutie (1998)

In 1998, Death Cab for Cutie released their first LP Something About Airplanes on Barksuk Records, the current home of Ra Ra Riot amongst others. I had no idea this album existed until well after their second album was released and I was working at a Kinko's with my then-bandmates. MP3s were still way new, and Facebook was not even real.
