Spooky Favorites

This sing-a-long album is targeted to the younger Halloween enthusiasts. It has eighteen songs, many of which are rehashes of classic children's songs with a Halloween theme. This gives them a tried and true sound that most children will identify with right away.

The Nightmare Before Christmas (Special Edition)

The Nightmare Before Christmas has become a wonderful cult movie that is especially popular around Halloween. Aside from being an interesting movie, it also has a wonderful soundtrack featuring clever lyrics and wonderful music. The special edition not only contains all of the music from the original, but also a second disc featuring demo versions of the music and several cover songs by artists like Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, and Fiona Apple.

Halloween 20th Anniversary Soundtrack

The soundtrack to the 20th anniversary edition of Halloween. It contains twenty-eight tracks that were used in the horror movie.

Drew's Haunted House Horrors

The thirteen tracks on this album are created as background music for parties or haunted houses. Unlike many Halloween albums, this one isn't meant to be cheery or comedic, but actually scary and foreboding sounding.

Mannheim Steamroller: Halloween

This two disc collection contains twenty instrumental tracks, all of which are themed for Halloween. Most listeners don't think that this album is on par with their other albums, but if you like Mannheim Steamroller, you may like this as well.

Monster Mash and Other Songs of Horror

A fairly basic album consisting of all the expected Halloween party songs like Monster Mash, Ghostbusters, and the Twilight Zone movie theme. There isn't anything amazing about this album, but it does have several songs you'll be famailer with. Twelve songs in all.

Kidz Bob - Halloween

Kidz Bop is a series of albums where you hear familiar songs performed by kids. This Halloween edition contains some cute fun songs like the Scooby Doo and Witch Doctor, however it also contains a couple of more adult songs like Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Michael Jackson's Thriller. Although they have been somewhat censored ("pelvic thrust" has been removed, but "hounds of hell" has not) they may be a bit scary for your youngsters. But then, isn't the the whole point of Halloween? There are thirteen songs in all.

Walt Disney: Halloween Songs & Sounds

The animated stories of Walt Disney include music for every occasion, including Halloween. Remember the Winnie the Pooh song Huffalumps and Woozles? Who doesn't? This album also features songs with Mickey, Goofy, and the fearless Tigger. There are twelve tracks total, and they're just perfect for your younger kids who aren't quite ready for anything too scary.

Halloween Hootenanny

This is what you get when you let Rob Zombie compile a Halloween mix. The tracks cover bizarre genres from rock 'n roll to rockabilly and from lounge music to surf music. The nineteen tracks will go great with a Halloween dance party, but don't expect anything too scary because as the name suggests, this music is for a hootenanny not a death metal rave.
