Erick, thanks for posting this - there are some gems in here that I hadn't heard before! I especially like Vincent Price's "Monster Mash" - where in the world did that come from? And thanks for including the Bing Crosby, Boris Karloff & Victor Moore Halloween Song. This mix was a lot of fun.

You don't happen to have "Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives" by Mel Torme, do you?

Erick said...

From what I can gather, the Vincent Price "Monster Mash" comes from an EMI Demo 7" single from 1977(release no. EMI2659). The B side is called "The Bard's Own Recipe".

I do not have "Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives" by Mel Torme. It sounds interesting, I'll keep an eye out for it.

I've heard this song in an odd place. It was in a movie called 'Daffy Duck's Quackbusters' which was a take-off on the Ghostbusters. At one point, Daffy is at a monster party of some kind, and he begins to sing 'monsters lead such interesting lives' with Mel Torme's voice. I'm not sure if it was recorded specifically for the movie; it might have been.

Vincent Price singing the Monster Mash? I'll download this as soon as I can!

I just posted "Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives" on my blog:

LEAD SUCH INTERESTING LIVES (from "Night Of The Living Duck" - 1988) -
Mel Torme

Just a DVD rip from the original toon itself, and not the studio recording.
