I've already posted an updated list of kids music songs for Halloween, but I wanted to give a special shout-out to three new videos -- maybe they can serve as the intro to It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! showing at your neighborhood Halloween gathering. Halloween is almost here, so let's get going!
First off, a nifty stop-motion animation piece for an instrumental song, "Skeleton Dance" by Monty Harper. Totally appropriate for all ages. (You can grab Harper's collection of Halloween tunes here.)

Next up, Mariana Iranzi offers up "Es Halloween," a Spanish-language song about, well, I don't think you need to know any Spanish to guess its subject. The driving pop-rock song features a nice groove, while the animated video features five pumpkins rolling along.

And, finally, it's John Joyce and Poochamungas singing "Bah Humbug Halloween," the story of Scrooge meeting the ghosts of Halloween Past, Halloween Present, and... Elvis? OK, not quite, but... mostly. The video tells the story in mostly live-action narrative. I really don't remember Dickens writing this story, but I'm good anyway.
