It then traces those branches to the present day by playing music that echoes the music of the sixties including power pop, jangle pop, pub rock, glitter and glam rock, neo-psychedelia and indie pop.

Screamin' Jay Hawkins “I Put A Spell On You”
from Best of Screamin' Jay Hawkins - I Put a Spell On You (Classic Music International 2010) —The classic from 1957. I've started each of my Halloween specials with this tune: year one - Them, year two - Manfred Mann, year three - CCR and this year with one of the original. I need to come up with another version for next year...looks like John Wen
Johnny Kidd “Shakin' All Over”
from Loud, Fast & Out of Control: The Wild Sounds of the 50s (Rhino 1999) —The original version of this one. I've played someone's every year for the Halloween specials including: The Flamin' Groovies, The Who and The Swinging Blue Jeans.
Dickie Goodman “Frankenstein Meets The Beatles”
from The Monster Album - Dickie Goodman's Halloween (Out of Print,,Re-mastered,Collection,Bonus Tracks,Promotional) (Goodman Brothers 1965) —Not so scary, but awfully funny. You'll howl with laughter when you listen to the zany hi-jinx of our favorite re-animated pop star and The Beatles.
George Harrison “Beware of Darkness”
from All Things Must Pass (30th Anniversary Edition) [Remastered] (Apple 2001) —Darkness is scary ...especially if you suffer from achluophobia - the fear of darkness or dark spaces.
