    45 Days till Halloween

    Continuing through the “Kids” folder, though I don’t know how much of it I can take.

    DJ's Choice - Halloween Dance Party Vol 11 (2002)
    Not a lot of information out there on this one. About a half-hour of music geared toward little ones.

    Demon Music Group - Ultimate Halloween Party (2006) – Leads off with the 2nd worst rendition of “Thriller” I’ve ever heard. (The worst was done by a German group that sounded like they were singing over a karaoke track.) This one – first, there is NO SINGING.

    Today, only two more of Reverend Frost’s mixes, which just get better and better.

    Part 16 (2010) –The Fuzztones do a nice cover of Round Robin’s “I’m the Wolfman”, the Trashwomen cover “Dragula”. Also a big band version of “The House is Haunted”. There are more songs I haven’t heard before, like “Raiders From Outer Space”, “Save It For the Vampires”, and “Now I’m Feeling Zombified”. There are two soundtrack pieces that sound a ...
