Part 2: How to Download Halloween Pumpkin Songs from YouTube

Many of the Halloween pumpkin songs we talked about today are modified nursery rhymes that have been passed down from generation to generation. While you can find them all on YouTube, these songs don’t have an official version so you may need to look around a bit in order to find a version that sounds good. Once you do find a version you like, consider downloading the song with DVDFab YouTube to MP3 to avoid wasting time searching for the song every time you want to play it. The software can also be used to download entire playlists so it’s even better if you can find a playlist that contains all these Halloween pumpkin songs.

Here’s how the tool works:

1. After installing DVDFab 10 you’ll want to go to the Utilities section where you can find a tool labeled YouTube to MP3.

2. Open the tool in question and then search for the songs you want to download on YouTube. Once you find a song you like, copy its URL.

3. Return to the software and paste the URL in to begin the download process.

4. Wait a few seconds until the download has finished and then simply go to the destination folder to play the MP3 version of the song.



Halloween pumpkin songs are a great way to celebrate the upcoming holiday together with your whole family. Many of these songs are also quite educational so they’re a great fit for children. That said, these types of songs aren’t exactly entertaining for most adults so make sure to add a few grown-up songs as well to your Halloween-themed playlist. Once your playlist is complete, make sure to download it with DVDFab YouTube MP3 so you won’t have to worry about any ads or other interruptions.
