A Halloween playlist for all your (socially distant) celebrations

By Joshua Sokol, Assistant Arts Editor

Even though parties are a no-go this year, a good soundtrack can transform a quiet night into a one or two person soiree in an instant.

Everyone dust off your skeleton jumpsuits, stretch your bones, and tune in to A Very Beacon Halloween to dance your boney butts with a playlist inspired by the sounds of All-Hallows Eve.
