Here are 8 tracks perfect for while you’re crawling your way through the everyday horror that is the Manila traffic (it will be extra bad this weekend because of all the Halloween parties), or a quiet night at home (if Halloween is simply just not your thing). Most of these items aren’t “scary” per se--some are actually OPM's most beloved pop songs--but they all explore two common Halloween themes: death, loss, and how people deal with them.
Boys and girls (especially those of you who grew up in the 90s!), here are 8 songs to include in your Halloween playlist.


8. Halik ni Hudas - Wolfgang



Nakalubog na sa kabaong / Lalo pang binabaon
Tao sa pangil ng buwaya/Kapangyarihan ng halik ni hudas

7. Ambulansya - Rivermaya



 'Sang binatilyo ang saka y / Akap ng nobya ngunit walang malay
Mahal niya ang magulang niya / Nais niya lamang sanang lumipad

6. Earthmover - First Sighting



Because post rock means no lyrics, and no lyrics means you can imagine many dreadful things.

5. Pigface - Greyhoundz



Sindak begins in the first few seconds.

4. Mariposa - Sugarfree



'Di mo lang alam, inaasam/Ang panahong
Makapiling ka / sa una't huling pagkakataon

3. Buloy - Parokya ni Edgar



Tapos pagkatapos no'n, kay tagal mong nawala.
Nagulat na lang ako nung narinig ko ang balita.

2. Ang Huling El Bimbo - Eraserheads



Lahat ng pangarap ko'y bigla lang natunaw
Sa panaginip na lang pala kita maisasayaw

1. Five Years - Sugar Hiccup



But he will never be back...
