Hi all,

I purchased a 3 axis and am going to get one or two more before halloween this year. What I need is some really great songs for them to sing. So far I have gotten the "No one lives forever" and "Monster Holiday". Those are the types I'm looking for. Any help would be appreciated.

First question
1) how many do you plan on "singing" ?
2) are you having any other props do anything while he/they , are singing ? ( likes maybe some pumpkins with lights going on and off to the rythem of the music )
3) What kind of setting are we doing this year for your Halloween display ?

Hi,

Not sure but, as many as I can put together. I've never done it before. I would like a large selection to choose from though. My main theme is cemetary/scarecrow pumpkin patch this year. Not as big as I originally planned since I'm buying the skulls instead. I figure they are much more versital. I thought of doing the pumpkins as a backdrop and having them light up to the beat but, I'll be lucky if I can figure out the motion and everything with the skulls. lol
I would rather have more then just the two songs playing over and over. I was thinking of making a 3some in the cemetary or on my front porch. It would be cheaper if I just used fake bodies in the cemetary and put the heads on them and had them sing with the pumpkins doing backup in the pumpkin patch across the way. Lot of wire though.

Shake them bones from disney comes to mind.Of course manster mash, it's only halloween from andrew gold. This is halloween (nightmare before christmas).Dead mans party (oingo boingo),Werewolves of london (warren zevon),spooky scary skeletons (andrew gold). You could also maybe use cold ethyl (alice cooper).

heres a few I'm using this year .... might find one you like :

bones tones.mp3

Beetlejuice - Day-O (The Banana Boat Song).mp3

dance around in your bonesHIHG qualitry.MP3

I do not go for the "cutesy" appearance , just the cutsey effect - LOL
my props go both - scarey/creepy and the cutsey . I also have one skeleton who is a 2 axis talker thats poking thru a broken hole in a tombstone that does rimshot jokes for the passer by .

Rimshot joke example

rimshot06.mp3

blood-lite.mp3


I also have my witch , who is stirring her cauldron ( also a talker 2 axis ) singing - HOT STUFF by Donna Summers
And new this year ... a skeleton in a coffin outhouse that sings Brad Paisley's Toilet Song while sitting on the pot . The coffin is stadning straight up , the door opens via an air cylinder , nice and slow , while the beginning of the song starts , and the the skelly sings the words to the song .

So , you see, there are PLENTY of songs and ideas out there ... :)

Here are the one's that I found so far...
Monster Holiday
No One Lives Forever
Shake Dem Bones or Dem Bones
It's Only Halloween
Halloween Suite
Dead Man's Party
Werewolves of London-Warren Zevon
Spooky, scarey skeletons
The Monster Mash
The Time Warp
Baby, It's cold outside
Nightmare Before Xmas

I'm still looking but, I think I have more then enough since my skull hasn't even been delivered yet. Also, if I do more then just a solo, I will have to wait until I get the others to start making the movements work with the music.
So little time, so little money. lol

LOL ... I was gonna have two skellys , one male , one female ( FEMALE noted by the long hair wig ) and have full size skellys standing side by side singing BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE .....
, but figured , between all the singing pumpkins ( thanks to dionicia's method :) ) , singing skelly tombstones and singing corpses.. enough is enough.
