It gets everybody, including myself, into the festivities of decorating, baking and making costumes. (I don’t really make my own costumes, just saying… You can check out a great place to buy Halloween costumes here…) If you are looking for a great kid friendly Halloween music list, look no further than my Top 65 Halloween Music List for Kids!

A few of the songs might have questionable lyrics/meaning as many Halloween songs will, so for the ones that I felt you might want to check into, I put a (???) mark next to the song. I generally assume most of the lyrics and meanings go over the heads of the little ones, so my kids hear all the songs on this list, but you make the choice for yourself. A lot of love and time went into this list, so if you like it, please leave a comment below!

Here it goes, in alphabetical order, your Halloween music list for kids!
