    Halloween Music
    I'm trying to figure out the title to a song that was played in Spirit Halloween regularly this past season. I believe it was called Swamp Thing, it is a garage rock song with a sixties vibe to it but it sounded like it may have been recorded in the nineties or even after. Any ideas?
