13 Spooky Songs for Friday the 13th

If things are feeling off for you today, you can 100% blame it on Friday the 13th. It’s the unluckiest day on the Western calendar and we’re not really sure why? But this superstition is so weaved into our culture that many high-rise buildings, hotels and hospitals omit the 13th floor. Some airports don’t even have a gate numbered 13! There are some brave souls who choose to create some fun out of the day though, such as the hundreds of tattoo parlors that give free Friday the 13th themed tattoos.
Look, there’s no reason to let a day like this go to waste in fear of something bad happening. We’ve made a list of 13 spooky songs just for you, and I heard if you listen to these Friday the 13th themed songs, then you’ll be free of any bad luck! These spooky tracks will have you grooving safely through the day.
1. "Evil Woman" - Electric Light Orchestra
"Evil Woman" by ELO
Start your Friday the 13th off with this groovy ELO hit that is all about an enchantress that broke the protagonist's heart. Let's be real though, she's probably more of a queen than an evil heartbreaker, therefore I believe that listening to this song three times in a row will actually bring you good luck.
2. "Voodoo Child" - Jimi Hendrix
"Voodoo Child" by Jimi Hendrix
