R.I.P. Bobby "Boris" Pickett

The first post of course had to come from Halloween Music's Cryptkicking King, Bobby "Boris Pickett" who created the Monster Mash. He died on April 25th of this year, but he created one of only 3 songs to hit #1 on three separate occasions. The Monster Mash has sold over 4 million copies. The Monster Mash hit #1 on October 20th 1962 just before Halloween. As a tribute I've posted a little heard gem from his album the Original Monster Mash. Anyone that still gets a kick out of playing a song for over 40 years clearly is a total badass. So Bobby I salute you, you fucking rule.
