Jack Skellington may have taken over the Haunted Mansion and turned it into Haunted Mansion Holiday but you can still hear “Grim Grinning Ghosts (The Screaming Song)” in its entirety on Main Street, U.S.A. The not-so-scary but very Dapper Dans sing a special set during Halloween Time at Disneyland park including this creepy classic created by Disney Legends X Atencio and Buddy Baker.

Other songs with spirit in the set include: “Candy Crony Baby (Coney Island Baby),” “This Is Halloween,” “Main Street Trick or Treat (Sidewalks of New York),” “Cruella De Ville,” “Let’s Go Trick or Treating (Let Me Call You Sweetheart),” “Way Down Upon the Lovely Graveyard (Way Down Upon the Suwannee River),” “Good Ol’ Halloween Time (Good Ol’ Summer Time).”

What’s your favorite spooky song?


  • My husband and I were at Disneyland this past weekend and got to hear the Dapper Dans sing just outside the Firehouse. We really enjoyed their performance!


  • WOW, that might just beat the original from the ride. I don’t usually stop and watch the Dans, but I will next time for sure. Impressive guys.

  • Thanks Dan, the Gooogle page was awesome!
