You could introduce them to the classic Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett.

And if you want to go with some more whimsical choices:

You should also check out a group called "Witches In Bikinis". They have a few good kid-friendly songs..Dear Doctor Frankenstein, Cemetery Boogie ,and Hold Me, My Little Ghostie come to mind.

Literally anything by Kristen Lawrence, such as:

Also, literally anything by Jill Tracy, like:

Any number of songs by Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands, specifically October and You Are My Sunshine.

Beats Antique's Beezlebub (they also have a very fun remix of the old Disney short Skeleton Dance):

This Way To the Egress has a lot of fun songs. A lot of them are about murder or madness.

Lose Your Soul by Dead Man's Bones:

Bottom of the River by Delta Rae:

Halloween by Siouxsie and the Banshees:

Little Ghost by The White Stripes:

If you want to go old-school, Artie Shaw's Nightmare is timeless:

Tom Waits' music might be a little grown-up for a kids' party, but he has a lot of great stuff. Alice is a good album to check out. I also love the hell out of this song: https://youtu.be/45JdWBfLsA8

"Vampire Soiree" - Electra Spectre and the Gravediggers ;) It's on iTunes. The backing track is originally from the vintage Ronald Stein Film Score, the vocals are new.

When my nephews and I were kids, my older sister used to sing a Tom Lehrer song for us about a girl who kills off her family. We loved it! "Rickety-Tickety-Tin" is macabre and funny at the same time.
