I received a pretty cool song to share courtesy of John Paul Check from Fortune Frog Music. They’re an independent label based out of Minneapolis’s North loop. Since its founding in 2016 Fortune Frog has helped a variety of artists realize their musical goals. Through October they’ve proudly worked with The New Occupants bringing their music to lovers of the Halloween season.
On September 7, 2011 I published the first in a three-part series (seen HERE) covering a favorite topic of mine, Halloween novelty songs. I initially became a fan thanks to the Dr. Demento Show (visit the official website HERE) that I would listen to as a young teen every Sunday night, pulling in a weak signal from a Boston-area station. Like all good things, the Dr. Demento Show eventually went off the air in this area but thanks to Rhino Records I was able to start building up a collection of novelty songs, with an emphasis on my favorite holiday, Halloween.
Welcome to the latest installment of Music To Die For! This was originally supposed to be a three-part series showcasing the very best CD releases featuring Halloween-themed, novelty songs. After two years I’m ready to bring you a 4th chapter featuring old fashioned Halloween hits available for a modern world! So welcome to my first “Digital Download Edition” concentrating on music collections available for download on both Amazon and iTunes! This is a great way to not only begin building your Halloween music library cheaply, but also see to it that it has titles never before available. If you haven’t checked out the original series part 1 can be seen HERE, part 2 can be seen HERE and part 3 can be seen HERE! Enjoy!
