Do We Know It’s Halloween?

That “Do They Know It’s Hallowe’en?” video got Lindsay quoting my favorite Mr. Show sketch, “Monster Parties: Fact or Fiction.”

Dracula … The Wolfman … The Mummy … Would these monsters ever assemble as a group in a party setting, to dance or eat and drink together? While skeptics declare it impossible, novelty songs seem to suggest quite the opposite.

If I remember correctly, the mummy was drunk (he loved the funk) and one of ‘em was dancing with Frankenstein’s bride and nearly redied. It was perfect. Got torrent?

Sidenote: What’s with Smoosh stealing their name from Mr. Show? Will Clive and Ian Shropshire sue? Dunno…

Anyway, on with the Halloween post…

Beware Of The Blog has a 70 minute horror music mix, Product Shop points to a “Weird Sisters” MP3 from the new Harry Potter (Jarvis Cocker, Jonny Greenwood, and Phil Selway performing “This Is The Night”), and PCL Linkdump has tons of other scary audio (via Vegan). Post your own Halloweeny MP3 links in the comments.

Some concert choices in the NYC area on Monday: Fischerspooner @ Irving Plaza, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings @ SOB’s, Mountain Goats and Grizzly Bear @ Knitting Factory, and my pick: The Head Set as the Police performing Reggatta de Blanc @ Pianos.

If you’re gonna dress up as someone music-related, please send us a photo! Here are last year’s reader-submitted Britney & Kevin Federline costumes. Ideas for this year: Steve Jobs, Billie Joe Shaver, Buckethead… ?
