Some Halloween Songs

Tonight I thought I would provide you with some Halloween songs. First up is a reconstruction someone made of Boris Karloff's performance of "Monster Mash" from Shindig. The clip was long ago lost, so an individual used the remaining footage along with some audio to recreate the performance! Also included are performances by Jim Doval & the Gauchos and The Wellingtons. Ted Cassidy appeared as Lurch on the same episode of Shindig performing "The Lurch," so the individual included footage of Lurch from the Los Angeles local show Shivaree (a show like Shindig or Hulabaloo that aired from 1965 to 1966).

Next up is a video that mashes up Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs' "Little Red Riding Hood" and footage from the Tex Avery classic "Red Hot Riding Hood."

Finally, here is a video I made myself that combines Frank Sinatra's version of "That Old Black Magic" with footage from the classic film Bell, Book, and Candle.
