The Spookiest Spotify Halloween Party Playlist for Kids
Let's get dressed up and into the Halloween spirit with these spooky, scary Spotify Halloween party playlist for kids!
There’s nothing quite like fall. The weather turns, the temperature drops, and suddenly it’s time for pumpkin spiced lattes. We love this season — the fallen leaves, the cozy evening, and, of course, Halloween.
This year, everything is a little bit different. Halloween parties might not be going ahead, and Trick or Treat might be canceled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate at home! There are so many ways to enjoy October 31st at home — watch your favorite scary movie, snuggle up under a blanket, drink some spiced apple cider, and tell a spooky story or two. Or you could get a family dance party going!
We’re so excited about this holiday that we’ve done our research and put together the perfect Halloween party playlist for kids. Your family will love these songs, so crack out your skeleton costume and get dancing!
Your kids may not have seen the movie (that might have to wait until they’re a little older!), but they have probably heard this song! It’s the perfect tune for a Halloween party — it’s a little bit spooky, it has a great beat, and it will get your kids dancing. Importantly, adults will love it, too!
2. Spooky, Scary Skeletons
Andrew Gold's Spooky Scary Skeletons first appeared in his album Halloween Howls. Ever since then, it’s been a Halloween classic and a favorite for children of all ages. In fact, the song even inspired a TikTok trend, where TikTokers donned costumes and bust out their best skeleton dance moves.
3. Monster Mash
Spooky Scary Skeletons is a solid runner-up, but Monster Mash is surely the reigning champ when it comes to Halloween. It’s the king of Halloween songs, and we couldn't have created a Halloween party playlist for kids without this epic song! It's incredible to think that it was released in 1962 by Bobby "Boris" Pickett, and it's been celebrated and loved ever since.
4. The Addams Family Theme
What family personifies and emulates Halloween better than the Addams Family? They might be creepy and kooky, but we love them, and this time of year wouldn’t be the same without hearing their theme song. So be sure to turn your Jooki up and enjoy this iconic Halloween tune!
5. Baby Shark Halloween
This song may be more of a hit with your younger children, but this spin on the classic Baby Shark song will be a guilty hit with your older kids, too — we guarantee it. They may not want to admit it, they might insist they’re dancing ironically, but they’ll love this song, and so do we.
6. Boo! For You Halloween
This might be a quick one, but it’s lively, it’s fun, and it’s an ideal addition to a Halloween party playlist! We love Boo! For You Halloween, and it’s the perfect tune to dance to.
Kids and adults love the Creedance Clearwater Revival hit. Since 1969, this spooky song has topped Halloween playlists, and it’s a great song to help you get into the Halloween spirit!
8. The Munsters
We've already paid homage to the beloved Addams family, but this list wouldn't be complete without mentioning The Munsters and their amazing theme song! The shows ran concurrently, and while there has been an ongoing feud between fans, we see no reason to have to pick sides! This song has no lyrics, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dance along and enjoy the music.
From one iconic theme song to another — there was no way we were creating this playlist without mentioning Ghostbusters! We love the movie franchise, but it definitely wouldn’t have been the same without such an epic song to support it. It’s bold; it’s fun, it’s just a little bit silly — and no matter how old your kid is or whatever their musical taste, they’ll be thrilled to hear this song on their Halloween playlist!
10. The Monsters Hop
Here’s another blast from the past that has stood the test of time! Your kids might not have heard this one before, but we guarantee they’ll immediately love this song.
11. Werewolves of London
This song would be really scary if it weren’t for the fact that it has such a simple, fun, almost wholesome tune! Your kids will love it, and they’ll love howling along, too.
Who doesn’t love The Nightmare Before Christmas? Who doesn’t love Jack Skellington? While this movie is most commonly watched around Christmas time, this song is definitely more suited to this spooky time of year, and we couldn’t resist including it in Jooki’s Halloween party playlist.
13. Witch Doctor
Okay, this one is a bit more on the silly side! But we couldn’t resist. It’s a favorite for many at this time of year, and it’s always a big hit for kids! Crank up the volume and see if your kids can get their "Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang" right.
14. Purple People Eater
Who doesn't love a song about a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater? Since it hit number one in 1958, people all over the world have loved this song about a strange alien creature coming to Earth to be part of a rock and roll band.
15. Somebody’s Watching Me
This eerie song by Rockwell is a hit with so many people; we know you’ll love to hear this in the middle of your Halloween party!
Your kids might just know this from Hocus Pocus. Who doesn’t love a song about magic, witches, and spells?
17. Men in Black
This song might not be about monsters, witches, or werewolves — but it is all about aliens, so we feel that it deserves its place in our Halloween party playlist!
Jooki has evolved! We’ve begun a brand new adventure with Jooki 2nd Generation, and we’re thrilled to take you along with us. Your kids will love the sleek new Jooki — Sign up to stay tuned, whether you live in the EU or North America.
