Halloween Party Songs for Kids

Every year, I throw a small Halloween party for my daughter and her friends. We serve some Halloween-themed treats and make some Halloween-themed crafts. This year, I made a Halloween mix of songs that I thought would be upbeat and kid-appropriate but still fun for the adults who hung around.



  • Calling All the Monsters by China Anne McClain
  • Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers
  • Witch Doctor by David Seville
  • Zombie Jamboree, by Harry Belafonte
  • The Time Warp, by Richard O’Brien, Patricia Quinn, Little Nell & Cast The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack
  • I Put A Spell On You, by Creedence Clearwater Revival Chronicle, Vol. 1 Rock
  • Purple People Eater, by Sheb Wooley
  • Werewolves Of London, by Warren Zevon
  • (You’re The) Devil In Disguise, by Elvis Presley
  • Strange Brew, by Cream
  • Sympathy For The Devil, by The Rolling Stones
  • This Is Halloween, Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack
  • Superstition, by Stevie Wonder
  • Ghostbusters, by Ray Parker, Jr.
  • Thriller (Single Version), by Michael Jackson
  • Friend of The Devil, by The Grateful Dead
  • Witchy Woman, by The Eagles

If it were an adult party, I probably would have mixed in some slower songs. And I love a good creepy classical piece, like Saint-Saens’s “Danse Macabre,” but I wanted to keep things upbeat for the kids.

What would you add to the list?
