    Default 13 Halloween swing and jazz tracks...

    ...not on the Haunted House or Halloween Stomp albums. Just a few from my own collection, 30s-50s. Not specifically written for Halloween, but they are spooky/morbid/etc.

    For anyone who wants 'em.

    It's a free account.. I dunno how that works exactly, but there it is. The tracks are in a zip file and these... are them.

    He's Dead But He Won't Lie Down - Gracie Fields 1941

    Hush, Here Comes The Bogey Man - Henry Hall Dance Orchestra 1932

    It Must Be Swell To Be Laying Out Dead - Alex Bartha's Hotel Traymore Orchestra 1932

    Nightmare - Artie Shaw 1938

    Quoth the Raven - Ella Mae Morse and the Kirby Grant Orchestra 1944 (this was ripped from a video of the scene from the film, so it's far from perfect but nifty indeed.)

    Thanks. That'd be a good group of songs to make up one of those free jukebox things. I have one made up for Halloween that is about due some new tunes.

    Thanks for posting this. I've been looking for songs like these. The older songs just work better for my own personal Halloween celebrating. My dad will appreciate it too since he was a kid when most of these came out, so I'm sure it'll bring back some childhood memories for him.
    I'll bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween. Anonymous

    Hey- those are really cool. I especially appreciate your posting the Brian Sisters song (audio) on your site. I've been looking for that for ages!

    Oh, and I responded about "The Walls Keep Talking" video on your site. I think it might be the actual Teddy Hill Orch recording, which would mean it was late thirties... I cannot find any copyright info for when the darn thing was written. The 1941 Krupa/O'Day version is incredibly popular however. I can't find anything saying it was written earlier than 41... it's just a suspicion... lol

    Thank you so much everyone!
    I love these oldies and am a big Big Band fan!
    I like to toss these kinds in amongst the newer tunes and also with modern radio stuff. Really mix it up and keep things hopping.
    ;D

    13 Halloween swing and jazz tracks...
    Glad you like. And I like your name- reminds me of the Ipswich Stocking ads. Close enough!
