It’s not quite Halloween without a constant stream of Halloween songs. Whether they are spooky or silly, our family loves them all. I put together the ultimate Halloween song playlist and thought I would share. This playlist is perfect for your next Halloween party, to listen to when you’re driving through the neighborhood, looking at Halloween decorations or to blast while you’re decorating our own house or waiting for trick or treaters. For those of you that live for Halloween, you can even listen to it all year long! 

Did you ever wish you could easily access all of the best Halloween songs? I've put together that playlist for you and you can listen for free on Amazon Music!

I've put together the ultimate Halloween playlist, including a link so you can listen to them all for free on Amazon Music!

You can access my entire Halloween Playlist on Amazon Music! There are 9 out of the 60 listed that I couldn’t add as it requires a monthly subscription from Amazon Music. If you want to try out Amazon Unlimited Music, you can sign up for a free trial (and add the songs that are missing!).

Also, please note that there are a couple that have explicit language. Just keep that in mind when listening to this playlist around children.

Did I list all of your favorite Halloween songs? If I missed any good ones, please comment below and let me know so that I can add them!

Don’t forget to check out all of our other Halloween posts, including recipes, costume ideas and family fun!
