SPOOKY SCARY

The weather turns cooler....the leaves change color...and all the stores have their Christmas decorations up. This can only mean one thing: HALLOWEEN is coming!!!
Time for a little Halloween mix:
First up is a great little ditty from 1983 (OOOH!!)
THE ELECTRIC GUITARS "Wolfman Tap" is one of those forgotten WLIR staples. Why would anyone combine Wolfmen and tap dancing?? I don't know, but the results are infectious.

Next up is this dancey gothy romp from the Screaming Tribesmen. 1985's "Date With A Vampire" is a must have for any self respecting Goth or over-40 New Waver.


The Bollock Brothers' "Horror Movies" has also been a New Wave favourite of mine for years. I love how it's a complete and total rip off of "Spooky". But I'll let that slide.

I'd like to end this with a not at all New Wave selection from the mid 70's
The 5 MAN ELECTRIC BAND's "Werewolf" has that right mix of camp and creep. I like how in the song the Werewolf's Dad has to kill his son that has been slaughtering sheep, and when they meet the Mom is actually rooting for the kid to eat his Dad.......Thanks honey, I Love You TOO!!!

That's it for now.....I'm sure I'll be posting more in the couple of weeks to come. Remember: Halloween is not over until the Simpson's Halloween Special airs.....which is always sometime in November


THE ELECTRIC GUITARS - WOLFMAN TAP

It's true! The Halloween candy is already on sale to make way for the fake Christmas trees! I'm not a H'ween kinda guy but I love the mix!
