THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...STREAMING FROM THE CASTLE EAST! This fan-made 1973 video for "The Monster Mash" is today's must-see clip (natch), though you can also see Bobby "Boris" Pickett perform it live at Little Steven's Halloween a Go-Go 2005. The covers by The 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.

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.

TRICK OR TREAT: Aquarium Drunkard has your holiday mixtapes.

HALLOWEEN A/V: PopMatters' streaming Halloween videos and audio, from Bauhaus to to Stevie Wonder to Cream to The Cramps... has taken numerous hits from the lawyers since 2008, including the Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer,"  Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising," Santana's "Black Magic Woman", The Ramones' "Pet Sematary"  and Tegan & Sara's "Walking With a Ghost." But there are still some gems there; including Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

WARREN ZEVON is on that PopMatters list, but I prefer a live trifecta of "Werewolves of London," "Excitable Boy" and "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner."

THOMAS DOLBY returns with a videogame and album after 20 years. So how about the mad vibe of "She Blinded Me With Science"?

HENRI MANCINI: "Experiment in Terror." A sentimental favorite to those who grew up watching "Creature Features" on WGN before it went superstation.

FIVE HAUNTINGLY HIP SIDES For Your Jazz Halloween.

TRICK OR TREAT BIN:  From Dusty Springfield to the New York Dolls, from Robyn Hitchcock to Donovan, from John Carpenter to Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield, plus more -- this Friday's Halloween finds are streaming from the Pate page at the ol' HM.

THE TIME WARP:  Let's do it again.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases are: Puss In Boots, which is currently scoring 80 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; In Time, currently scoring 38 percent; and The Rum Diary, scoring 54 percent.

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