As autumn creeps up on us, the need for the perfect Halloween playlist is stronger than ever. So, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and cover your baking pan with the classic Pillsbury Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Dough. Light a couple of fall scented candles and listen to this playlist to experience the eerie aura of Halloween. This playlist is comprised of a variety of songs ranging from the classics to early 2010s hit songs, guaranteed to get you ready for Oct. 31.
