Best Halloween Songs for Kids

It's officially October, and the days are getting spookier... But fear not! We've compiled a list of the best kid-friendly Halloween songs that the whole family can enjoy.

1. The Addams Family Theme Song
They're creepy and they're kooky, and this theme song is a perfect match for Halloween! Just as Morticia and Gomez are a perfect match for each other.

2. The Munsters Theme Song
There might not be any lyrics to this semi-spooky song, but it's sure to make even the mummiest of mummies get up and dance.

3. The Twilight Zone Theme Song
The perfect music to foreshadow all the spooky mishaps that are about to happen this season!

4. Hedwig's Theme (by John Williams, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)
This absolutely stunning work will send chills down your spine!

5. The Time Warp (from The Rocky Horror Picture Show)
The movie itself may be rated "R" for good reason, but this song is fun for ghosts and ghouls of all ages! Bonus: the Time Warp is a dance that is easy to learn!

6. This Is Halloween (Marilyn Manson's version, from The Nightmare Before Christmas)
This might just be the unofficial theme song for the entire month of October.

7. Thriller (by Michael Jackson)
The King of Pop's "Thriller" is another song that comes with some spooky, zombie-esque choreography.

8. Ghostbusters Theme Song (by Ray Parker Jr. from Ghostbusters)
I ain't afraid of no ghost!

9. Graveyard Cha Cha (by The Three D's)
Werewolves, Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper, and Dracula are mentioned in this dance hit!

11. Werewolves of London (by Warren Zevon)
While this classic hit is played year-round, its air-time ramps up around Halloween.

12. Boris the Spider (by The Who)
For anyone who greatly dislikes spiders, this might just be the spookiest song on the list!

14. Purple People Eater (by Sheb Wooley)
"Purple People Eater" is an easy song for kids to sing along.

15. Witch Doctor (by David Seville and the Chipmunks)
Kids will have fun singing along to this song's silly chorus!

16. Rockin' in the Graveyard (by Jackie Morningstar)
What better song to come right after the "Purple People Eater" and "The Witch Doctor" than one that names both of those tunes in its opening line?

17. Monster Mash (by Bobby Pickett)
What Halloween song list would be complete without "Monster Mash?"
