HAPPY HALLOWEEN, TEENNICK FANS!
As you prepare for an evening of sugary sweetness, allow us to first tempt you with a little ear candy! Halloween might not claim an entire genre of festive tunes (Christmas...always tryna outshine!), but we gathered a few terror-iffic tunes that are sure to have you getting spooky with it!
Thriller - Michael Jackson
The man, the legend, the icon. It just isn't Halloween if you don't get your groove on to some "Thriller."
Thriller/Heads Will Roll - Glee
Your favorite Glee stars revamped Micheal's hit and warped it with Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Heads Will Roll" in their 2011 Superbowl special.
Superstition - Stevie Wonder
Creepy, crawly, and oh so fun! Nothing like a Stevie Wonder throwback to get you saying "Superstition IS the way."
Disturbia - Rihanna
RiRi never disappoints, and in her hit song "Disturbia" she went for a haunting look that scored her a #1 slot on Billboard's Hot 100 back in 2008. Five years later, it's like the darkness is the still the light.
I Put a Spell on You - Screamin' Jay Hawkins
You probably know and love this tune from the classic film Hocus Pocus, but we're giving the spine-chilling original a little love.
Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
She wants your loving, she wants your revenge. But she also shocked you with a dark, hypnotizing song that had an a equally daring music video.
Britney Spears - Toxic
Britney wowed us all in this pop gem. Who knew it would be such a great song for a spooky night?
Ghostbusters - Ray Parker, Jr.
If you've ever slipped the line, "Who you gonna call?" in a conversation, you have this song to thank.
Classic, fun, and something Mom and Dad can sing along to (unfortunately).
Blow - Kesha
When Ke$ha opened the song with a sinister laugh, "Haha... dance," she was referring to your potential Halloween plans. Dance the haunted night away!

Even though it's been a few years since the last "mix CD" made its way into the dashboard of a car, receiving a collection of songs curated just for you is undeniably timeless. It's one of the best ways to learn about new artists, but it also gives you an opportunity to dip into someone else's brain, to see what makes them feel all of the feels (a word with which we, as loyal Degrassi fans, are particularly familiar).
We decided to ask the stars of Degrassi to put together playlists of their musical favorites, and to give us an idea of the kind of music that means something to them. For the next few weeks we're going to be sharing with you the songs that represent, in their own musical taste, highest highs, lowest lows, and everything in between.
To get you revved for an all-new episode of Degrassi TONIGHT, we're kicking off the series with two playlists of songs that get you pumped up courtesy of Aislinn Paul (a.k.a Clare Edwards) and Eric Osborne (a.k.a Miles Hollingsworth III)! Whether it be prepping for a workout, a big sports game, going out with friends, or just looking for a little pick-me-up, Aislinn and Eric take it away with their stellar choices.
