Halloween Comes To The Dino Lounge With The Monster Mash

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I decided to do a series of posts in celebration of this spooky cool holiday. I hope you will come back each day to see what's going on here. These posts will conclude on Friday, October 30th. I will also be doing Halloween posts at my other blog Sugar & Spice. It just wouldn't be Halloween with the very cool song Monster Mash. I thought that was a great way to start of this holiday season at my blog.

Monster Mash was a #1 hit for Bobby "Boris" Pickett back in 1962. His original version is definitely still the most popular, even though the song has been covered by everybody from The Beach Boys to The Misfits.

Here's a great video for the song. I hope you enjoy it.




P.S. My friend Maria has a very cool blog on Dean Martin that I hope you guys will check out when you get the chance. She posts a lot of pictures I've never even seen before. I'm sure you will enjoy her blog very much. Thanks. Cheers!

I absolutely love this song. Sometimes during random times of the year, I just burst out singing it. Ever since I heard it as a child I've been obsessed. Never did I know there was a cartoon/music video to accompany it! :)

that song will live on forever. it's just not halloween without it in the same way summer wouldn't be the same without Will Smith's "Summertime".

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, Yeah. I have to hear this song at least once every Halloween. It's just not the same without it. You are so right about Will's song too.

I'm behind these Halloween posts 110%, you can't cram enough October festivities in my books :) Love that you kicked off your Halloween theme with the Monster Mash, I play that (along with Purple People Eater) any time I need a retro All Hallows Eve music fix.

Have a terrific Thursday - and an awesome countdown to Halloween,
♥ Jessica
