Ok.. so my youngest child kinda freaked me out Monday on the way to school. She started singing the Monster Mash.
Does anybody remember this song?
I wondered how had my little 5-year-old ever heard of it.
So picking up on that this week
I we hastily created a new Drive-On-The-Way-To School list (albeit searched for on my phone via Youtube) of fun scary tunes to sing in this creepy-crawly season.
First on this year’s Halloween Hit List: the Monster Mash (of course):
Coming in number two on our morning, back-to-school drive is last year’s favorite ‘who ya gonna call?’ Ghostbusters!
And coming in at the number one spot was the too-long-of-a-video-because-we-got-to-school-before-the-music-started-so-Dad-couldn’t-bust-a-move hit video, the toe-tapping, hippily-scarey, Thriller!
My girls like watching this video cause they say I look a lot like these dancing zombies when I wake up in the morning.
(See how I just put all the songs together here on my blog so I don’t have to do a video search for the songs tomorrow while I am driving? Pretty smart, huh?) (Opps! did I just say that?)
Not making this Year’s Scary-Song list was:
Iron Maiden’s: 666, The Number Of the Beast
Nine Inch Nails: Dead Souls
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’s: Heads Will Roll
Metallica’s: Enter Sandman (hmmmm I may have to reconsider)
the Adam’s Family theme song
and Frozen’s: the Cold Never Bothered Me Any Way (what a nightmare!)
Now, a quick show of hands, who else out there is actually old enough to remember the song, the Monster Mash?
Is anyone old enough to remember the coming out of Thriller?
Yes, my girls seem to be pretty down when it comes to out-dated music trivia.
Their Dad is not. He is more like helium..
He’s so old…
Happy Halloween everyone!
PS: So tell me faithful reader(s) what fun Halloween songs am I forgetting and can add to our list of spooky drive time hits?
Be very very afraid!
