THE HALLOWEEN WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...STREAMING FROM THE CASTLE EAST! This fan-made 1973 video for "The Monster Mash" is today's must-see clip (natch. The covers by Bootsy Collins and BucketheadThe Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and The Misfits are pretty good also -- the latter uses clips from the Rankin-Bass animated classic, Mad Monster Party.  And here's the story behing the perennial graveyard smash.

THE SHAGGS: It's Halloween!

JIM CARROLL (deceased) sings about "People Who Died."

KISS got their first television exposure in 1976 on The Paul Lynde Halloween Special.

"DO THEY KNOW IT'S HALLOWEEN?" is the all-star charity send-up of Band-Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" featuring Roky Erikson, Elvira, plus members from Arcade Fire, Sonic Youth, Smoosh, Rilo Kiley, Sparks and many more.

GORILLA VS BEAR: Halloween Mix 2020.

HALLOWEEN A/V: The Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer," Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising," Echo & the Bunnymen's "The Killing Moon,"  Santana's "Black Magic Woman", The Ramones' "Pet Sematary," Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare," Siouxsie & the Banshees' "Halloween," Cat Power's "Werewolf," Guided by Voices' "Cut-Out Witch,"  Classics IV's "Spooky," Tegan & Sara's "Walking With a Ghost," Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' "Red Right Hand," AC/DC's "Hell's Bells," The Cramps' "Goo Goo Muck," Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear The Reaper (More Cowbell)," Tom Waits' "Cemetery Polka," The Edgar Winter Group's "Frankenstein," and Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party."  And, of course... Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

THE ROLLING STONES' "Sympathy For The Devil" from the David Frost Show just plain amuses me. Monty Python makes much more sense when you know most of them once wrote for Frost.

WARREN ZEVON: A live trifecta of "Werewolves of London," "Excitable Boy" and "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner." BONUS: "Werewolves of London," by James Joyce.

THOMAS DOLBY: How about the mad vibe of "She Blinded Me With Science"?

NOW SHOWING:This weekend's wide releases are Terminator: Dark Fate, which is currently scoring 66 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Harriet, scoring 70 percent; Motherless Brooklyn, scoring 65 percent; and Arctic Dogs, not screened for critics.  Plus, there's Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, in limited release on the big screen before coming to Netflix on Nov. 27; it's scoring 98 percent.

AND NOW: A Sophisticated Man About Town. Super-duper.

GRIM GRINNING GHOSTS, from the Haunted Mansion.

"THRILLER": The original 13-minute Jacko classic, plus the filipino prisoners.

IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN is viewable online. The WaPo has 7 Things You Don't Know about the perennial Peanuts classic. Vox thinks it's a Christmas special.
