I was telling people to copy the songs from my Book of Shadows – The Soundtrack playlist on Spotify onto a playlist of their own then delete the songs that weren’t about witches for Halloween listening. This morning I realized I should just do that myself. So, I present you with an abridged version of the soundtrack, which I’ve called the Samhain Edition, on which every song is about witches. All except for one that’s just about magic and Taylor Swift’s “I Did Something Bad” because it’s about doing bad things and there’s a part about burning witches. Here you go… Enjoy!

Here’s the description:

“What would you do if you found your late great grandmother’s book of shadows, better known as a spell book, and learned that you’re a natural born witch? If you’re 16-year-old Emma McGlinchey, you try a candle lighting spell and recruit best friends Lia and Shar into starting a coven after it works.

Soon the girls cast a glamour spell to make everyone like them at the religious high school where they’re being forced to begin their junior year. It works perfectly on all but a nasty group of zealots who bully Lia and Shar for being a lesbian couple.

Meanwhile, a love spell they cast for Emma to charm the boy of her dreams succeeds, but the guidance counselor comes onto her, too.

The girls attempt to deal with these side-effects using other spells, but will they be able to set things right before catastrophe ensues?
