MA-80 - Boneyard Bash -- Celebrating Walpurgisnacht





Today, April 30, is Walpurgisnacht.

For most folks (like me), it’s just another excuse to celebrate the fun of creepiness.  So that means it’s time for an anthology of songs about the raise-the-dead aspects of Walpurgis Night.

Here’s what I’ve dug up:

14. The Cat - Rod Willis (2:23)
15. Tennessee Hillbilly Ghost - Terry Preston (Ferlin Husky) (2:26)
16. Cha Cha with the Zombies - The Upperclassmen (2:39)
17. Skeleton Frolic (1937) - Joe DeNat (7:13)
18. The Way Out Mummy - Bob Ridgley (2:00)
19. Rigormortis Rock - The Gazmen (2:17)
20. Pet Sematary - Ramones (3:30)

The Incredible Texas UFO Incident



This silly thing isn't music, but a comedy tape, silly yet clever and fun.

These are several little sketches that are smart-aleck enough to make me envious, and downright goofy enough to make me feel at home.



01. The Texas UFO Incident (4:05)
02. The Capture of Bigfoot (3:23)
03. Modern Day Witches (2:55)
04. Suspended Animation (5:43)
05. The Abominable Snowman (3:56)
06. The Loch Ness Monster (7:04)
07. The Great White Shark (2:19)
08. The Devil's Triangle (2:52)



Not only that, it's produced by "The Monster Recording Corporation"!

Dare to be silly!
