The Ultimate October Carpool Playlist

Everyone is getting into the Halloween spirit now that October is here. Want to get the party started in your carpool? Grab the aux cord. We’ve got you covered. Check out these five songs from our spooky season playlist that will make for a chilling drive to the office with your coworkers. 

#1: The Monster Mash

by Bobby “Boris” Pickett, the Crypt-Kickers 

This classic song has the power to transport anyone to a costume party. Get the good times started with a recognizable tune that everyone will know by the first line. 

#2: I Put a Spell on You

by Nina Simone 

This unforgettable song has the beat and lyrics to hypnotize everyone in the car. Put on the “Hocus Pocus” version, and then we’ve got a party.  

#3: People Are Strange

by The Doors 

This one always sends a shiver down our spine. It just feels like a cold autumn night with the minor key and lonely sound. Bring on the nostalgia in with this one. 

#4: Ghostbusters

by Ray Parker Jr. 

There won’t be a ghost or ghoul in the car that can stop themselves from singing along to this one. Imagine listening to this on a chilly fall morning with your carpool crew. You just might have to stop for a pumpkin spice latte on your way to work.   

#5 Thriller

by Michael Jackson 

The moment the first note hits, expect an uproar. This iconic song with a dance that transcends time might even have to play a second time in the carpool. Make sure to tell your passengers to keep their dance moves under control so you can drive safely! 


The time to start a spooky playlist is now. Sharing music can be the most fun part of carpooling or ridesharing. Turn your rideshare into a ridescare this month. Keep building on the songs we listed above, and tweet your own favorite fall songs at us using the hashtag #RideScare
