MUSIC: Song Of The Day - Halloween Edition (Oct 3): "Monster Mash" By Bobby "Boris" Pickett & The Crypt Kickers

You can't have a Halloween playlist without this song. It'd be like having a collection of Christmas tunes without Bing Crosby's "White Christmas"!

I actually have a few different versions of this song, including one by the horror-influenced punk band The Misfits, one by Mannheim Steamroller - known for their Christmas music, one by horror master Vincent Price, among others.

But none beat the original by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and The Crypt Kicker Five.

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
