Power Rankings: Songs for Halloween

The SAW Power Rankings is our weekly ranking of a certain movie-related topic. Please feel free to comment on our rankings and provide a list of your own in the comments below.

We thought for this last Power Ranking heading into Halloween it would be fun to share some of our favorite spooky songs for the season. Maybe you are having a gathering and need some fun songs to play for Halloween or simply want some recs to add to your playlist. Here are some of our favorites and we would like to hear yours down in the comments. Also, check out our Sounds of Halloween: A SAW Curated Playlist from last year and our Spotify list.
