Spooky Halloween Songs From the 1920s and 1930s

Filmmaker Lindsay Holiday, who creates documentaries focusing on royals, women, and specific topics through the ages, has compiled a wonderful auditory list of 13 Halloween songs from the 1920s and 1930s. While wildly different in styles, each of the songs has an eerie feeling about them, particularly with the echoey sound of vintage recordings in the mix.
