Gad, I'd forgotten this song (Oh, wait, I've NEVER heard it before, I refuse to admit my age :-)

Ya, it's silly alright!...Remember "oo ee oo ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang?" or something like that!? That was pretty silly.

The Monster Mash? that was pretty silly but I still smile when I hear it! Actually, it was very well produced!

In Jr High School I wrote a pretty silly one:

"During the baseball season we might as well be dead, the boys don't look at us they look at baseball instead..." Ya, I know...believe me, you DON'T want to hear the rest! :)

Fred I had pretty much forgotten that song. I haven't forgotten Sammy Kaye. Swing and Sway with Sammy Kaye on the radio when I was a kid was a no miss. Saturday night I believe for most of my kid life.

I know every word to this one. The tune came out when I was in 2nd grade.

I'm with Z in that I love "Monster Mash."

I also love Ray Stevens's "Ahab the Arab."
