You can’t celebrate Halloween without a few classics – including this performance of “Monster Mash” from American Bandstand on October 13, 1964 by Bobby “Boris” Pickett, which is our featured video this week. The song was originally released as a single on Garpax Records in August 1962 along with a full-length LP called The Original Monster Mash, which contained several other monster-themed tunes. The “Monster Mash” single was number one for several days on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1962, just before Halloween. And the rest, as they say, is history.
