MA-80 - Boneyard Bash -- Celebrating Walpurgisnacht





Today, April 30, is Walpurgisnacht.

For most folks (like me), it’s just another excuse to celebrate the fun of creepiness.  So that means it’s time for an anthology of songs about the raise-the-dead aspects of Walpurgis Night.

Here’s what I’ve dug up:

02. Danse Macabre (Franz Liszt piano transcription) - Camille Saint-Saëns (9:59)
03. Graveyard Dance - Ray Sanders (1:44)
04. March of the Trolls - Edward Grieg (2:56)
05. Zombie Stomp - The Del-Aires (2:07)
06. Dance in the Graveyards - Delta Rae (3:40)
07. Laurie (Strange Things Happen) - Dickey Lee (3:02)
08. The Skeleton Dance (1929) - Carl Stalling (5:09)
09. 'Til the Following Night - Screaming Lord Sutch with The Savages (3:42)
10. Spooky Boogie - Cecil Campbell and His Tennessee Ramblers (2:25)
11. Zombie Jamboree (Back to Back) - Harry Nilsson (2:54)
12. Yodeling Ghost - Patsy Montana (3:06)

15. Tennessee Hillbilly Ghost - Terry Preston (Ferlin Husky) (2:26)
16. Cha Cha with the Zombies - The Upperclassmen (2:39)
17. Skeleton Frolic (1937) - Joe DeNat (7:13)
18. The Way Out Mummy - Bob Ridgley (2:00)
19. Rigormortis Rock - The Gazmen (2:17)
20. Pet Sematary - Ramones (3:30)
