Added two new songs to the Halloween music playlist from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3, the Straight to Hell Music Video and Devil's Worst Nightmare. And when listening to the playlist, here are some tips. The playlist was designed to be played in order. But with over 14 hours of music, that is a lot to listen to! So just choose a song to start with and allow the playlist to take you through that section's genre/style of music. As for the videos themselves, I chose them mostly because of their sound quality. Finally, if you play the playlist with the window minimized or behind another window in your browser, YouTube will usually skip most of the commercials.
