Halloween Sharks by Pinkfong
Thought you’d heard the last of the ‘Baby Shark’ song? Think again...This version is slower and has a spooky twist.
It's not Halloween without a bit of Thriller! If you think your kids won't get too spooked, why not pop the iconic video on too?
We love a bit of the Monster Mash and we think your kids will too as they dance around the house in their costumes.
Five Little Pumpkins by the Kiboomers
This Halloween song is made to the same tune as the classic nursery rhyme 'Two Little Dickie Birds'. It's simple and easy to learn, making it a great one for younger tots.
Somebody's Watching Me
Another classic that us grown-ups can sing along to is Rockwell's Somebody's Watching Me and it's bound to be a hit with the kids too!
The Addams Family theme tune
This short but well-known theme tune will instantly bring those Halloween vibes to your home.
This is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas
This catchy song from Tim Burton's popular family film 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' celebrates all the spooky fun of the Halloween.
Bump in the Night
Little fans of Scooby Doo will definitely love this song!
I Put a Spell on You
Who doesn't love a bit of Hocus Pocus? This is a great song for your mini witch to dance to!
Spooky, Scary Skeletons by Andrew Gold
If your little one is choosing to dress up as a skeleton this Halloween, then they'll love this catchy song from the 1929 Disney Silly Symphony 'Skeleton Dance'.
Monster Boogie by Laurie Berkner
Another great one for tots, this short song by Laurie Berkner will have them doing the monster boogie all round the house. It even shows you how to make your very own monster mask too.
Hedwig's theme tune
You may associate Harry Potter a little more with Christmas, but don't forget Hogwarts School is for witches and wizards and Hedwig's theme tune sounds mystical and mysterious. A good choice if your little one doesn't like anything too scary.
Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show
Your tot definitely wouldn't have seen this (and we obviously we don't recommend it either) but we're almost certain they'll love this funky tune.
Black Magic by Little Mix
Ok, so it's not strictly spooky or a Halloween song, but it does talk about Black Magic and is an upbeat song your tot will have lots of fun to (as well as yourself).
