Description
Who's not in the holiday spirit?

I am.

We've got bones in the yard, and creepy critters along the sidewalk.

I'm ready for Halloween. Bring on the candy corn.

Lyrics
WHAT WAS THAT NOISE?
WAS IT ONE OF MY TOYS?
WAS IT SOME KIND OF SPOOK?
OR WAS IT ONE OF THE BOYS?

I HEARD A NOISE OVER THERE
MY NECK IS STANDING UP HAIR
ARE WE ALL GONNA DIE?
OR SHALL WE RUN FOR OUR LIVES?

THERE’S A ROBOT AT THE DOOR
AND A TREAT IS WHAT HE’S ASKING FOR
IS THAT SOMETHING FROM THE GRAVE?
IS THAT THE WAY THAT GOBLINS BEHAVE?

THERE’S A SHADOW ON THE WALL
THERE’S AN UGLY MONSTER DOWN THE HALL
THERE’S A SCRATCHING AT MY DOOR
COULD BE A HUNGRY VAMPIRE LOOKING TO SCORE...

DEVILS AND WITCHES
CREATURES CRAWLING FROM DITCHES
PIRATES AND PRINCES
ZOMBIES MISSING AND ARM
HEADLESS YOUNG MISFITS
RACE CAR DRIVERS WITH SHIFT KITS
COWBOYS AND SOLDIERS
THINGS THAT LIVE ON A FARM
THE POPE’S IN A STROLLER
HIS DAD IS A BUM
HIS SISTER IS ANGRY
THAT SHE HAD TO COME

Scared the ..... out of me
Haunting groove and drums, I loved the violins in the beginning, and the sound effects were great too. You indeed are ready for Halloween.

Very cool stuff.

Too Much Violins
I hoped the violins and the bells and the pipe organ were a recipe for terror!

Thanks!

Creature Under The Bed
I'd be more concerned about the creature under your bed.

Remember what happened to your poor brother? He was a good boy. Too bad he didn't heed the warning.


Huh?

Boo!

Candy Corn for all!
Excellent BOB!

Spooooooooky gooooooodness!

So scary I peed my pants! Especially that scary screaming followed my wolfman barking. Yep, more pee following the group screaming.

Gotta go change myself now.

Very, very good
or should I say brilliantly conceived and executed

yes I should

always find your vocal tracks most interesting - yo seem to get a great sound every time

crypt kicker 5 joins the B52's and find the monster down the hall

WWPD?
Thanks Bryn,

I can hear the Crypt Kicker/B52's scuffling in the hall with a giant creep.

As far as vocals are concerned, I recorded about 6 separate tracks and they were really horrible, so I came back in the morning and redid them from scratch and I was much happier. Then I found a perfect ladies' scream on freesound and dropped it a couple octaves for an even better man scream. There's something creepy about a man screaming.

Thanks for the kind words.

huge
and indeed very very scary. Loved the dog the most. Sounds like my shepherd Pagan, did he collab on this? The screams are pretty intense actually. An interesting mix of tongue in cheek and teeth in neck...;-)
Keep 'em coming Bob!

Woof
I found a couple of good dog barking samples on freesound and lowered the octaves for a bigger meaner dog. These were originally poodles and chihuahuas. Ferocious, sure, but they needed some modification to get that desired effect.

Tongue in cheek, teeth in neck. Nice.

Thanks PVD!

Beware!
The halloween things is easy. Candy, costumes and a late night for the kids.

When you get older you still want to run crazy and eat candy, but with the big kids.

Trick or Treat!
"Smell my feet, give me something good to eat!" (remember that one Bob?) This was one deliciously eldritch and shivery great job--just delightful!

PS: Remember how you'd get like 2 pounds of loose candy corn at the bottom of your bag along with about 6 really shiny pennies?

quite a treat
Great orchestration at the beginning, with a cinematic feel, and the arrangements throughout the rest (percs, especially) manage to make this 5xa song weirder than they usually are. No mean feat in itself !

Conventional
There are certain conventional elements that make a halloween song work. I just happen to be a conventional guy with conventional ideas about music. Huh?

Tombs To Go
Late in the composition I made that opening bell a repeating loop. It was way better than the random bell sounds I started with. I actually felt the ghost of egobandit swirling over me, controlling my loops for a moment. It was eerie and quite frightening.

Thanks bud!

Blood Curdling
Between the dogs and the screams, I was really enjoying myself.

Now that I think of it, I had some really good screams on my Lake of Fire tune. I need to go back and listen to see which screams are the best.

Thanks R67!

Only MJ's top ghoul can work scary robot behavior in to a song. I also love the image of a vampire in heat. Pope in a stroller? Please tell me the stroller is dressed up as the pope-mobile. Please?

Wow Bob! You really pulled out all the stops on this one.
I don't think you could have added any thing else to this.....oh, maybe a creaking door opening..but what the hell !
That scream is fantastic and lowering it down a pitch is genius.
Mad ,excellent, brilliant stuff..as always
Much enjoyed

"The zombie cow says..."

You're the scariest funny guy I know. Man i love all the dance club breaks in here. This is destined to replace the monster mash at halloween parties everywhere. Bobbing to bob.

is the pope's sister the 'aunt' of the church? and if so does she carry cool distracting things for the congregation in her purse?

Monstrous
I can't imagine what it'd be like to have a guy like you in our band.

If you were in our band, you'd definitely be the first choice for egg shaker or maybe spiritual advisor.

I NEED WHIRLED PEAS
Although I admit I liked the bit of ultra-violins at the beginning of this. Your touches of weird lyrics, weird delivery, weird sound effects are sublime, and show that indeed you are touched. :-) Loved the last line.

And I'm listening to this for the first time. Fittingly. This is the perfect audio haunted house... the drama and the beats, and the scary sound effects and of course... the lyrics; I didn't know it was possible to write lyrics that awesome.
