Another Blast From The Past

This is the last weekend before the ghouls and ghosts will be working overtime to scare the trick-or-treaters on Halloween, only to have to rise up and vote four days later. So it's only natural we have PYY's 2nd Annual Halloween version of Another Blast From The Past.

Hard to believe, but it's been 30 years since the debut of the first Halloween movie. It spawned seven sequels and a remake, and laid the groundwork for ten Friday The 13th films. I thought they all were lame, but the theme for this flick is a well written piece of music. By free association, it's a melody that has become synonymous with fright:

Here comes Mr. Halloween, himself, Alice Cooper. This one is the title cut off of the Killer album. In my opinion, it was almost as good as the Billion Dollar Babies release.

Warning: Some people may find some images in this video to be disturbing.

From the first album comes this little ballad, about an insane patient from a mental institution and his temporary escape from his court-ordered living quarters. Here is The Ballad Of Dwight Fry:

Here is a video showing him lip-syncing in a cameo appearance on the old TV show, The Snoop Sisters. The song is off of the Billion Dollar Babies album and is called, Sick Things:

Here is a tune from the Killer album. The video pays tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, the song is You Drive Me Nervous:

Enjoy (and beware).
