Celebrate the spooky season with the Disney Halloween Playlist and more
Disney fans can get into the spirit of the season with a Disney Halloween Playlist featuring Halloween favorites, from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” to “Grim Grinning Ghosts” from the Haunted Mansion.
The Disney Halloween Playlist will put everyone in the Halloween mood with spooky classics from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Hocus Pocus,” plus new music from the Disney+ special “Muppets Haunted Mansion” and villainous songs from Disney movies like “Mother Knows Best” from “Tangled,” “Shiny” from “Moana,” and “Trust in Me” from “The Jungle Book.”
The playlist also features a new updated version of “Calling All the Monsters” from the McClain Sisters and Disney Music Group’s acclaimed a cappella group, DCappella’s rendition of “Come Little Children” from “Hocus Pocus,” as well as a “Descendants” medley.
But those aren’t the only treats Disney Music has in store for Halloween. The Coco – Dia de Muertos Playlist celebrates music from Disney and Pixar’s “Coco,” including “Remember Me” and “Un Poco Loco;” the Complete Descendants Playlist features music from the Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants,” plus “Zombies” and more; and the Disney Villains Playlist reminds us how good it is to be bad with classics like Ursula’s “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from “The Little Mermaid” and Scar’s “Be Prepared” from “The Lion King,” as well as new favorites like Florence + the Machine’s “Call me Cruella” from “Cruella” (2021) and Bebe Rexha’s “You Can’t Stop The Girl” from “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.”
For younger Disney fans looking for some not-so-scary Halloween fun, the Disney Junior Halloween Playlist features music from Mickey and pals, “Vamperina,” “Doc McStuffins,” and “Puppy Dog Pals,” while Disney Spooky Sounds offers a collection of creepy songs and sound effects from Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie,” “Mickey’s Monster Bash,” and others.
