There's a track that features scary sounds like moans, chains, and howls -- perfect for a spooky party, but maybe a bit too scary for preschoolers.
What's the story?
Kidz Bop has been producing kid-appropriate Top 40 songs since 2001. KIDZ BOP HALLOWEEN HITS! features 15 popular hits that kids and parents know and love, including "Monster Mash," "Witch Doctor, "Ghostbusters," and "The Addams Family," and even includes contemporary hits like Rihanna's "Disturbia" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller." The last track is a lengthy five minutes of ghoulish sounds that are perfect for setting the mood on Halloween night.
