The Addams Family is more kooky than creepy, which is why we love the group of characters in the family including 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 play list.
It’s hard to get too scared when listening to the song “Headless Horseman” from Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow when you have Bing Crosby’s familiar and soothing voice. Released in 1949, this classic tune would make a great addition to your Halloween playlist.
For a more modern Halloween song, perhaps you would like “This is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s slightly strange and cool movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. This song is written by Danny Elfman from the 1993 flick, however it has been covered by both Marilyn Manson and Panic! At the Disco.
It’s just not Halloween without witches! This song was originally performed by David Seville in 1958, however has been covered multiple times, with our favorite being the Alvin and the Chipmunks version. Just be prepared for "Oo ee oo ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang" to be stuck in your head all day!
For those who love Harry Potter and want to recreate Hogwarts at their own party, playing the Harry Potter theme song, called "Hedwig’s Theme," would make the perfect addition to your Halloween party.
Looking for new Halloween songs? Your kids may love the song, "Twelve Days of Halloween," which is set to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." This song is by Nooshi and is from the album, Halloween Songs to Christmas Melodies, which is available on iTunes.
