    Seeing these comments in the Random Thoughts thread makes me think we should start a Halloween song thread. So, what songs can you think of that make you think of Halloween? They could be anything from classic songs or child's songs, to heavy metal songs with scary lyrics, to songs with spooky organs and bass riffs, to songs that aren't even about Halloween but may have a Halloween-like title. Think outside the box if you have to.

    I'll keep it going...

    "Thriller" - Michael Jackson
    "Bark at the Moon" - Ozzy Osbourne
    "Feed My Frankenstein" - Alice Cooper
    "Dragula" - Rob Zombie
    "Enter Sandman" - Metallica
    "Witchy Woman" - The Eagles
    "Black Cat" - Janet Jackson

    Goin' old school, there's the "Monster Mash". I don't know who sang it, though. I'm sure someone else here does.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    I love the Monster Mash. Growing up I always wished I had the voice of the guy who says "they did the monster mash".

    "Graveyard Waltz", the Hooters. Obscure, but great. Any of you Philly based Cyburbians into the Hooters? Miss that band...

    Skeleton In The Closet 8-))

    *bump*

    Louis Armstrong, 1936,
    "When The Skeleton In The Closet Started To Dance":
    www.youtube.com/embed/Ae5WtA_Oqfs?feature=player_detailpage

    The Skeleton really does start dancing from 2.30 til the end!






    Yeah, Satchmo's record version has much higher quality sound, but this is more fun.

    I know it's not specifically a Halloween song, but my favorite is always Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London
