Doing "The Lurch"
We've gotten a lot of great response to our post a few days ago pointing to the great Scar Stuff blog and their album share of Sounds to Make You Shiver. We looked around the net for some more Halloween music and found another secret spot for spooky songs.
Mostly Ghostly is bringing us a daily Halloween countdown of some creepy classics. Not only will you find music, but after scouring YouTube the blog has also unearthed some choice videos like "The Lurch" above.
Lurch was played by the inimitable Ted Cassidy, whom you might also remember from his role as Ruk in the classic Star Trek. His intensely deep voice and laconic demeanor lent itself perfectly to this odd teen anti-dance tune. Here's video evidence that at last a few teenagers found a way to dance to the creaky, kookie and ookie strains of this undead butler.
