A Few of Our Favorite Monster Music Hits

Every year, about this time, we pull out our collection of Halloween music. Soundtracks, cds, mixes related to Halloween. Though we use them for our Halloween costume party and for trick or treating night on the 31st, we also use them to motivate and inspire as we decorate and prepare for fall.

I have a MUSIC page under MEDIA on our website (check the drop down menu) where I list about %65 of our collection.

Every year I scour for new Halloween related singles and albums.  We have a wide range in music tastes and a wide range of party invitees so our collection is all over the board.

One of our favorite “newer” songs is ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBORS. I think I added it about 2008. We just walk around singing this song. I just found a little video they made for the song.

Another one we enjoy is HILLBILLY HALLOWEEN

One of our favorite Halloween albums is HALLOWEEN HOOTENANNY and one of the songs we love is NO COSTUME, NO CANDY. (ain’t it the truth…come on people…you should be ashamed to send your kid to someone’s door with no costume…hello yard sales, Goodwill, and Dad’s closet!!).  Enjoy the song via youtube below:

I have spent hours and hours on Amazon.com searching mp3 with every word you might associate with Halloween.  If we start a party at 7, we start the music at 6 and it never repeats until after 2am. That’s pretty good.

    Anyway, if you haven’t added this tune to your Monster Music Hits, you might consider it.

    Monster Mash Lyrics

    I was working in the lab late one night When my eyes beheld an eerie sight For my monster from his slab began to rise And suddenly to my surprise

    He did the mash He did the monster mash The monster mash It was a graveyard smash He did the mash It caught on in a flash He did the mash He did the monster mash

    From my laboratory in the castle east To the master bedroom where the vampires feast The ghouls all came from their humble abodes To get a jolt from my electrodes

    They did the mash They did the monster mash The monster mash It was a graveyard smash They did the mash It caught on in a flash They did the mash They did the monster mash

    The zombies were having fun The party had just begun The guests included Wolf Man Dracula and his son

    The scene was rockin’, all were digging the sounds Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds The coffin-bangers were about to arrive With their vocal group, “The Crypt-Kicker Five”

    They played the mash They played the monster mash The monster mash It was a graveyard smash They played the mash It caught on in a flash They played the mash They played the monster mash

    Out from his coffin, Drac’s voice did ring Seems he was troubled by just one thing He opened the lid and shook his fist And said, “Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?”

    It’s now the mash It’s now the monster mash The monster mash And it’s a graveyard smash It’s now the mash It’s caught on in a flash It’s now the mash It’s now the monster mash

    Now everything’s cool, Drac’s a part of the band And my monster mash is the hit of the land For you, the living, this mash was meant too When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you

    Then you can mash Then you can monster mash The monster mash And do my graveyard smash Then you can mash You’ll catch on in a flash Then you can mash Then you can monster mash
