This song was originally written and sung by The Strangeloves in 1965; however, it's since been covered by several artists, including Bow Wow Wow and Aaron Carter. The song is actually about a girl named Candy, but we think it works equally well for a kid’s Halloween bash — after all, isn't candy the main attraction of this spooky and fun holiday?
Who doesn’t like a “one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater?” This song hit No. 1 in 1958 — and remains a fun Halloween classic today.
The Addams Family is more kooky than creepy, which is why we love the group of characters in the family made up of Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Wednesday and Thing. The theme song for the TV series was written by composer Vic Mizzy and is a must-have on your Halloween playlist.
It’s hard to get too scared when listening to Bing Crosby's soothing voice. Still, the song “Headless Horseman” from Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow plays an important role in the truly spooky animated short. Released 1949, this classic tune never gets old.
For a more modern Halloween song, you might like “This is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s slightly strange and cool movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. This song is written by Danny Elfman and has been covered by both Marilyn Manson and Panic! At the Disco.
