Spooktober: Monster Mash (1962-4)

The story goes that Bobby "Boris" Pickett had aspirations of being an actor. And while I'm not sure if he ever achieved his dream, his talent for impersonation resulted in his most famous work.

"Monster Mash" was a #1 hit in 1962, and has been a Halloween staple ever since. 2 years later, Pickett appeared on American Bandstand to perform "Mash" and "Monster Swim", which we'll get to before the end of the month.
