With preparations well underway for Halloween parties this Saturday night, Spotify has revealed the most popular spooky songs being streamed.

Michael Jackson classic “Thriller” takes the top spot in the UK, enjoying a massive 2800 per cent rise in plays over the holiday period, while Rihanna’s catchy “Disturbia” and Lady Gaga’s hit “Monster” also feature highly.

“Poison” by Alice Cooper and “This is Halloween” from Disney film The Night Before Christmas will likely be on your playlist too.

There are currently more than a million Halloween playlists on Spotify so if you can’t be bothered to make your own, why not check out someone else’s?

If you’re looking for eerie genres, you can dip into the likes of Gothic Doom, Horrorcore, Grave Wave and Ghoststep for some suitably fright-filled tunes.
