When I was a kid the “Monster Mash” was an all-time hit and it played on the radio endlessly during Halloween without fail.  Denise and I would dance to the music and act silly (like we do today) and today it still delights us in a magical way.The Monster Mash by The Crypt-Kickers was one of the Top 20 albums in 1962.  Bobby ‘Boris’ Picket lead his band to score a total of 15 songs with his ‘Boris Karloff’ imitation – his music was a hit and continues to be played to this day!

This is one of the funniest films and one of my favorites – although I would have to cover my ears as the organ music played because it scare me so much!  The film (1966) is basically about a newspaper typesetter, Don Knotts, whose big chance to become a reporter has arrived–and all he has to do is spend the night in a supposedly haunted house.  FAST FORWARD to 3:00 marker on the video and enjoy – don’t forget to cover your ears!!  Wikipedia)


(Following remarks provided by iTunes) Michael Jackson was unquestionably the biggest pop star of the ’80s, and certainly one of the most popular recording artists of all time. In his prime, Jackson was an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the tools to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility, and loads of sheer star power. His 1982 blockbuster Thriller became the biggest-selling album of all time (probably his best-known accomplishment), and he was the first black artist to find stardom on MTV, breaking down innumerable boundaries both for his race and for music video as an art form.
