There was a record my elementary school played back in the early 80's with Halloween songs on it. It was a 78 I do believe. I had went back to the school when I was in high school and borrowed it and made a tape of it. Of course I lost the tape about 7 years later and the records are all gone. How to go about finding it? I have searched the web and Ebay for it. I have searched by song titles and the lyrics I remember from the songs. Any suggestions on how to find this record?

One of the songs could be titled: There's something sitting on the porch out there"
Or Halloween Tonight.

I also remember the back side of the record had Thanksgiving songs on it.

I wish i could help you, the album sounds great.I collect all the old halloween albums i can find and i have many, but that one doesnt sound familiar. If you do find it or any info on it i would love to also get it. Try to contact Halloweiner, he is an expert on halloween soundtracks.

I feel your pain! I remember a song about "a very noisy cat" that would sit on a fence (as I recall) and make the "same old Meow! Meow! Meow! You'd think he'd get tired of that." At least those are the lyrics I recall. It was a song we learned around Halloween in early elementary school out of one of those school music-program books w/cassette and I've driven myself mad trying to find that and other songs from the Halloween section of that program. I have to wonder whether there are web-sites out there that focus on these sorts of school music programs from the past (after all, there are websites for even more obscure things).

I typed in "Something Sitting on the Porch out there" and came across this page, which may have the lyrics to that song which may at least help lead you to finding the song (you could maybe contact the people who run the website and see if they have any more information on it): A Child's Place - Felt Board. Good luck!

I have been driving myself nuts as well for about 8 years. I even ran into some other people that were in the same class back in 1981-84 and they remember the songs as well. I recall much of the lyrics:

Tonight is Halloween, tonight is Halloween, so ride you witches through the sky. Ride your broomsticks, ride them high, because tonight........is Halloween.


----next song----

The witches are on their broomsticks, flying very high! Ooooh, ooooh, Halloween tonight. The skeletons are dancing on their boney toes. Clicking, clacking. Down the street they go.



The other song about the porch out there, the lyrics you found on the felt site are 90% the same.


I will work on more research of children's records.....thanks folks for the encouragement.

Are you sure it was on a 78??

That would have been very rare in 1981. Also 78s were usually just one song per side and by the eighties would have been almost worn out by the old heavy needles that played them if they got any regular play.

I suspect you mean it was a 33 1/3 RPM album.

It does sound like a great song and I will try to research it as well.

The school I was at had old records. I do have a faint memory of bringing them home and trying them at 78 rpm and it being too fast. I could be wrong with the speed. Please let me know if you find anything.

I did a search of "halloween" records at 78 RPM. I don't suppose any of these would be what you are looking for?

No, none of them look 100%. I remember one side was Halloween, the other was about fall and Thanksgiving I believe, perhaps was called Sound of the Season? Maybe it was a 33 1/3? Thank you for doing the search. Do you have a way to search 33's?

Are you sure it was on a 78??

That would have been very rare in 1981. Also 78s were usually just one song per side and by the eighties would have been almost worn out by the old heavy needles that played them if they got any regular play.

I suspect you mean it was a 33 1/3 RPM album.

It does sound like a great song and I will try to research it as well.
The school had a bunch of old records, even though I was there in '81, I wouldn't put it past them to have had very old records donated to them. It very well could've been a 33 and I start to do some searching.


How many minutes would fit on one side of a 78?

Generally, it would be one or two songs tops. Probably no more than 5 or 8 minutes to a side.

The grooves on the old 78s were wide and they were spinning pretty fast.

The 45 RPM record replaced the old 78s as "singles" once the 33 1/3 albums started comming out.

I remember two Halloween songs I had on 78 way back when; haven't heard them in decades... one was "The Wobblin' Goblin with the Broken Broom," and the other was "Punky Pumpkin the Happy Pumpkin." It was a female singer.... I think they were the A/B sides on the same disc. Basic goofy little-kid dumb songs, but I'd love to find them again. Major part of the childhood, you unnerstand :) Hmm... I need to go look those up.....

That sounds kind of like a set that I have that is called "Sing A Song Of Holidays And Seasons" from BOWMAR Records. It is a 4 reocrd box set of 78 rpm records. Here's a song list:

OLD MRS. WITCH
A THANKSGIVING PRAYER
THIS IS HALLOWEEN
CHRISTMAS GIFTS
SANTA'S COMING
THE BABY FIR TREES
HAPPY HOLIDAY
CANDLES OF HANNUKAH
LET'S MAKE A GARDEN
IT'S SPRING
HAWAIIAN RAINBOWS
SONG OF MOTHER HORSE
JAPENESE RAIN SONG
SAVEZ-VOUS PLANTER LES CHOUX
PUEBLO PRAYER
LOS PATOS
THE COUNTY FAIR
SONG OF PRAISE
WHO WILL COME?
LULLABY OF LITTLE THINGS
THE SEASHELL
SAILING SONG
THE CIRCUS TRAIN

The cover makes the set look like it's all Halloween as it has a Ghost with a Pumpkin head on the cover of the box.
However as you can see only 2 of the songs are Halloween related. I've never ripped it to my PC as I don't have a 78 rpm needle right now.
I found it selling for $30.00 on ebay one week so I grabbed it as it is a pretty rare set to find for under $50.00.

I have downloaded all I could find from that website, and read through the comments on the dead links and found more places to download stuff. Got about 240 songs now and still none of these. I really think Old Mrs. Witch was one of the songs and can't wait to see the lyrics or hear it if you have the means.

Here is a guy on ebay I sent a message to regarding my hunt. Check out his stash, though many of them can be downloaded for free from that scarstuff:

eBay Store - freuds-toys: CD, HALLOWEEN RECORD LP, WEIRD SPOKEN RECORD LP

Yes I have bought LPs from him before. However most of his prices are way too high for me. I emailed him once about how he finds so many sealed LPs. He said he's lucky enough to live in a city that has 7 or 8 Thrift stores that he can makes the rounds of every week. Must be nice. All we have here is the Starvation Army Thrift Store and one store that buys and sells stuff.

I should have a needle in about 2 weeks. Here's a scan of the record that must have also come out in 33 rpm as well as this looks like a gatefold 12 inch LP.

As you'll see I wasn't able to blow it up to where the lyrics can be read:
