The Monster Mash
This song has been a Halloween theme since September of 1962. It is probably the most requested spooky song of all-time! An interesting note about the ‘Crypt Kickers” is that Leon Russell was one of the band members. The song was re-released in 1973 and cracked the top 10 again that year and gained a gold record for the second time!
This one came from the 1984 blockbuster movie of the same name, that starred Bill Murray. The song would also spend two weeks at number one, and earn Parker his final of two gold records.
