This week is Part II of our Halloween spooktacular! Enjoy the return of the living Doctor Delirious as we dig our claws deep into Bobby "Boris" Pickett's 1962 number one hit: "The Monster Mash." Released in the summer of 1962, predictably the song caught on in a flash when Halloween rolled around several months later. The song was the only hit single from an entire album of spooky, monster themed tracks almost too similar to be distinguished from each other. Pickett went on to base his entire career on a pretty good Boris Karloff impression and would continue releasing similar records well into the 1980s. How many songs on an album can you put the word "Monster" in the title? How did they create the spooky sound effects in the opening of the song? Which punk-rocker-turned-rapper may have based his style off Bobby Pickett's "Monster Rap"? All these question and more will be answered on this week's episode of Single File.   Your participation matters! Don't forget to rate this song at   Cabana Boy Studios Voicemail Hotline: 971-999-0270
