Because they are attached to an actual date in the real world, Halloween mixes always end up being a mad scramble. But in a fun way. One year I went so far as to drive around late on the 30th delivering cassettes to people’s doorsteps.

This year I decided, for no particular reason, to pretend I was making an old-school mixtape — two sides, no more than 45 minutes each. Here’s Side 1. Playlist after the jump.
