The Nightmare Before Christmas

Monday, October 20, 2014

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a 1993 stop action film produced by Tim Burton. Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, rules in Halloween Town. Tired of organizing the yearly Halloween holiday, he stumbles over a door into Christmas Town. Jack convinces the citizens of Halloween Town to kidnap Santa Claus, while Jack hijacks the Christmas holiday. He doesn't quite understand the whole idea, though, and delivers vampire dolls, snapping teeth ducks, shrunken heads and similar items. The horrified townsfolk alert the military, and Jack is shot down. He survives, manages to free Santa, and makes amends.


"This is Halloween" is sung by the citizens of Halloween Town.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Who doesn't like pirates at Halloween? (The real ones were pretty scary, but fantasy is fun). This began as a popular Disney ride, then beame the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise (POTC: The Curse of the Black Pearl; Dead Man's Chest; At World's End; On Stranger Tides; and a projected 2017 Dead Men Tell No Tales).




Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho



Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We extort, we pilfer, we filch and sack
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
Maraud and embezzle and even high-jack
Drink up me hearties yo ho


Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We kindle and char, inflame and ignite
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We burn up the city, we're really a fright
Drink up me hearties, yo ho



We're rascals, scoundrels, villains, and knaves
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We're devils and black sheep, really bad eggs
Drink up me hearties, yo ho


Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We're beggars and blighters and ne'er do-well cads
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Moon Dance

Saturday, October 18, 2014

I heard this while driving in to work - had to sit in the car until the song ended after I parked. Been going thru my head all night.

Van Morrison wrote and recorded "Moondance" in 1970. It's his most frequently played song in his concerts, and has been covered by many other artists. In "An American Werewolf in London", this song played during the romantic scene between David (the man who would turn into the werewolf) and his nurse/girl friend, Alex.


Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush


Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love


Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait 'til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can't hide


Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love


Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush


One more Moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can't I just have one more dance with you my love

Monster Mash

Friday, October 17, 2014

I have to do this one every year. From 1962 comes the novelty song by Bobby "Boris" Pickett.


I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise



He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the monster mash



From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes



They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the monster mash



The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolf Man
Dracula and his son


The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"


They played the mash
They played the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They played the mash
It caught on in a flash
They played the mash
They played the monster mash


Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He opened the lid and shook his fist
And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"


It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash
The monster mash
And it's a graveyard smash
It's now the mash
It's caught on in a flash
It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash


Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
And my monster mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you


Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash
The monster mash
And do my graveyard smash
Then you can mash
You'll catch on in a flash
Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash

Young Frankenstein

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Young Frankenstein is a 1974 comedy directed by Mel Brooks, starring Gene Wilder as a grandson of the original Dr. Frankenstein. He hates being reminded of his mad scientist grandfather, and pronounces his name as "Fronkenstien". He inherits the Transylvanian estate, and travels there to inspect it. He meets a bug-eyed hunchbacked servant, Igor (Marty Feldman), and many other comedic characters. He becomes intrigued by his grandfather's journals, and begins to try to reanimate a corpse. Igor dropped the brain of the scientist Dr. F sent him for, instead substituting one marked "Do not use this brain! Abnormal!" Dr. F transplants the brain, and later questions Igor, who tells him it was "Abby Normal's brain". The creature (Peter Boyle) is brought to life, but isn't quite right in the head. To placate the townspeople, Dr. F puts on a show with the creature, both dressed in top hat and tails, singing and dancing to "Puttin' on the Ritz". Of course, it ends poorly.


Eventually, things work out well for the doctor, his creature, and the women in their lives.


Have you seen the well-to-do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air


High hats and narrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time


Now, if you're blue
And you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz


Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-duper


Come, let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or "umberellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz


Tips his hat just like an English chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very snappy


You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits

    Mel Brooks had some movies with a heavy dose of comedy in them! I saw that one a few times in the past but not in several years now. I think it was Madeline Kahn that was in it too.
