Boo.....a little "night" music

We're going to be quick here, but I was inspired to dig up some Halloween music by the folks at Northwest Public Radio. On the way back from Chelan, they were playing this:

Now if that doesn't get you in the Halloween mood, I don't know what will. Well, maybe this, a little seen version of Saint-Saens "Danse Macabre" that was broadcast on PBS in the early 80's.

I know there's hints of "I'm Only A Bird In A Gilded Cage" in there, but it's a little (A little?) darker than Tweety Bird.

Speaking of dark cartoons, this should do a good job of getting you in the mood. From Disney in 1929.....

Someone in the comments said "The Skeleton Dance" was from back when Disney had soul. They may have been right.

Now, since we're in a movie jag, I rediscovered this Burt Bacharach gem from 1958. Co-authored by Mack David (Hal's brother), it hit the charts with a roar, pushed by the movie of the same name.

Now this is primarily a rock and roll blog, so I guess I'd better throw some in, right? There's the usual suspects, Gene Simmon's "Haunted House", "Thriller", "They're Coming To Take Me Away", and anything by Freddie and The Dreamers. But I found a little gem I hadn't heard in years. There are a number of versions of this, The Who for example, have a pretty good one, but this one has an advantage. First, I saw SRC do this live a number of times and second, I think it was the first time I ever saw a band use a flashpot. Right after Gary Quackenbush screams at 2:40, the smoke went off and the flames roared. Must have been the summer of '69.

Don't eat too much candy, and have a great and enjoyable Halloween.
