Halloween is almost here, so what better way to usher in the fun spirit of the holiday than with the song Monster Mash by Bobby 'Boris' Pickett and the Cryptkickers. Monster Mash exemplifies the nostalgia associated with Halloween and conjures monstrous memories of our childhood journeys through the neighborhood in pursuit of a perfect bag of sweets.
Recorded in 1962, Monster Mash was originally released as a single along with a full length LP titled The Original Monster Mash. The single would eventually hit the number one spot on the Billboard Top 100 chart October 20th later that same year... Just in time for Halloween.
Here's The Misfits cover of the song too. Good stuff!
It was a graveyard smash,
