- Bruce Springsteen - A Night With the New Jersey Devil
Richard Thompson was a member of Fairport Convention back in the late 60's/early 70's. This song is from his 1985 solo album Across a Crowded Room. Bonnie Raitt recorded a killer version of this song.
How could you have a list of Halloween type songs and not include this song by the late Warren Zevon.
From the excellent cd OK Computer, Radiohead gives us the story with "Up above Aliens hover making home movies for the folks back home".
- John Fogerty - Haunted House
The original 1964 hit recording was done by Tupelo, Mississippi native and Sun Recording artist Jumping Gene Simmons. The song originally written by Johnny Fuller can be found on the new John Fogerty cd. Hey, that's Buddy Miller on guitar... that's scarey man.
I've always liked this song, but found it to be a bit unsettling. It was used in the excellent vampire movie The Lost Boys.
This song just creeps me out completely.
