The 20 Spookiest Kids’ Halloween Songs!

by Amber on September 12, 2009

Halloween may not be ’till next month, but I’m already getting excited. Ivan is going to be a Fireman!

I was looking through our CD collection for some fun Halloween songs to get us in the spirit and found two great ones: Laura Freeman’s Frankenstein and Steve Blunt’s Pumpkins, Beware.

So, I asked around for more suggestions and found that Steve had a wonderfully spooky collection of assorted Kid-Friendly Halloween Songs on his iTunes. I added a couple more and voilà! We’ve got a spine-tingling holiday playlist fit for tots and fun for mom and dad, too!

  1. Boo, Cackle, Trick or Treat by Sue Schnitzer: Ready for a funky Halloween night?
  2. Monsters in the Bathroom by Bill Harley: A Halloween classic!
  3. Pumpkins, Beware by Steve Blunt: Halloween is really scary if you’re a pumpkin!
  4. Old Witch by Ken Lonnquist: The classic rhyme about the old witch—don’t get too close!
  5. The Moonlight Wolfbite Batjuice Jamboree by Erin Lee & Marci: Yes, this song is as fun as its title suggests.
  6. Hey, Hey It’s Halloween by Two of a Kind: This song may help you come up with a good costume idea.
  7. The Good Times Goose Bumps Motel by Judy Pancoast: Dance and get silly!
  8. Maybe the Monster by Justin Roberts: Why is there a monster under your bed? What is he doing under there?
  9. Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet by Monty Harper: Don’t forget the tricks on Halloween!
  10. Creature Teacher by Mr. Billy: The spookiest teacher ever!
  11. Five Little Pumpkins by Raffi: Another Halloween classic.
  12. Another Halloween Night by Janet Sirett: Boogey woogey while you trick or treat.
  13. Jump Down, Turn Around, Pick Yourself a Pumpkin by Earthlings Electric Washboard Band: I just love the rhythm of this song.
  14. The Horrible, Hungry (Ex-) Beast by Steve Blunt: A scary story for Halloween.
  15. The Boogey Woogey Man by Marla Lewis: Just try not to snap your fingers to this one.
  16. Oh, My Darlin’ Pumpkintine by David Polansky: Yep, it’s Clementine with pumpkins!
  17. Frankenstein by Laura Freeman
  18. Daddy’s Little Pumpkin by John Prine: What kind of guy was Frankenstein really?
  19. Goosebumps by Katherine Dines: Shivery goose bumps!
  20. Spooky Dance by Rebecca Frezza: A great rock-and-roll beat to get you in the mood!

Hi there,

We have a fun Halloween song on our last album called “Spooky Dance.” If you have a chance, give it a listen and let us know what you think! Here’s a link to the Myspace page where you can hear it:
You can also find it on iTunes.

Have fun!

p.s. Our lead guitar player’s name is Ivan : )

Oh my word! I had no idea there were so many Halloween songs, I don’t recall them from school and you’ve taught me a number just from this list! How fun.
