The end of October is nigh, which means that in North America, certain other parts of the world, and most certainly K-pop, it’s Halloween time. To celebrate, I’ve collected some tunes inspired by my favorite spooky characters: witches. 

Witchy music isn’t just full of haunted fun, it is also often slyly feminist. Whether they are using their magic for good or ill, witches are a force to be reckoned with. You won’t find any shrinking violets here. 

Some of the following songs are literally filled with spells. Others simply seem like the kind of music a particularly fabulous modern-day coven would favor. Halloween might be something you love, loathe, or couldn’t care less about. Whatever your thoughts are on the holiday, I hope that hidden in this playlist, you’ll find something that thoroughly bewitches you.
