There is a very nice multi disc CD set of the works of composer Ronald Stein,who scored many A.I.P horror favorites,titled MAD,MOD AND MACABRE and the theme song to SPIDER BABY is included (as is the entire score from the film).It is remasted from the original tapes and is very sharp and clear,especially as the song is over 40 years old.
I think "Monster Mash" came out in 1962,the "Spider Baby" song was over that films titles in 1968,though I believe the film was actually made a couple of years earlier."Monster Mash" still predates it but they do have a similar vibe and are both great fun !
