The Mummy's Ball

One of the things I miss is that putting out a weird supernatural themed song like this was commonplace back in the day, just something you might make to try to get big. Imagine if Kanye or Pearl Jam decided to write a song about a werewolf or a mummy. Thankfully there's so much that I'm in no danger of running out of new songs to post. My lack of daily updates notwithstanding.

The vocals on this track by The Verdicts are amazing. One of my favorites I've posted in a long while. They were a band from New York that put out some singles in the 50s and early 60s. This track is from 1961 so it was released even before the Monster Mash. That's the crazy thing is that while the Monster Mash provoked a string of similar songs after its release, horror tinged singles were nothing new in 1962.
