Okay, he keeps on digging and digging and digging. First Harry posts a pathetic list of TWO "songs" to refute my list of seven of what I consider to be the best Halloween songs. One of his wasn't even a "song" by modern definitions of the term...but, whatever. THEN, he provides a list of Television and movie theme songs that he claims "failed to make Kurtis' list." Yes Harry, you a correct that these songs failed to make my list of Halloween songs that were not theme songs... I was saving theme songs for another list.
Once more refusing to bend to Kurtis' narrow-minded and hopelessly incomplete definition of what constitutes a song, here are a few more Halloween-appropriate SONGS that failed to make Kurtis' "list."
Judge for yourself... if you dare!
(These are in no particular order, as they all fall behind Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor...)
My, oh my, the controversy this subject has created here on the show... First off, I must ridicule Kurtis for turning to Webster's Dictionary for musical research... I'll have to remember that the next time I'm woodworking. I'm sure that the dictionary is a great place to research the proper use of a miter saw.
Forget Kurtis' amateur listing of the "top" Halloween songs. He forgets to list too many of the greats including THE greatest Halloween song of all time. To what do I refer? Hold on, let's look at his most surprising omission before I trump him with the greatest song.
Kurtis is known to have an orgasm at the mere mention of Danny Elfman's name, and while he does list Elfman and Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party" as his number one song, how in the world did he forget Elfman's unforgettable "This is Halloween" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas?" Shameful...
This is the time of year for ghosts and goblins. So... without much more ado, here is my list of the TOP SEVEN HALLOWEEN SONGS OF ALL TIME!

7. Bela Lugosi's Dead - Bauhaus
This was the first single released by the band Bauhaus (which later splintered into Love and Rockets and Peter Murphy's solo career). It is a haunting song about a haunting guy.
Join us as we interview someone who is familiar with the business end of "the business". Every movie and TV show has, as its backbone, a dedicated group of people who actually make things work. Among these hard working folks are the few, the proud, the production coordinators!
The third installment of my chronicling of the process of taking my short film "Glow" from idea to script to completion.
So, earlier this week Vince Vaughn issued a non-apology for using a homophobic epitaph in a film that is being released soon. I'm sure that our readers are familiar with the offending trailer from Ron Howard's latest movie "The Dilemma", and Mr. Vaughn had the following to say after the promo hit the news: "Let me add my voice of support to the people outraged by the bullying and persecution of people for their differences, whatever those differences may be. Comedy and joking about our differences breaks tension and brings us together.
We are winging it again tonight..... but this time we have all kinds of stuff to talk about. Airsex, Denny's, KFC, Glow, the Simpsons.... ...we are bringing it. Bringing what?
Bringing you the absolute worst in web talk radio... guaranteed!
CLICK ON THE ARTICLE TITLE ABOVE TO WATCH THE INTRO. If you watched The Simpsons this last Sunday, you saw an unusual intro. Tacked on to the end of a slightly modified regular intro was a new ending that seemed more a criticism of the Simpsons franchise itself. The intro, created by Banksy (an underground UK graffiti artist/political activist,) portrays Asian animation sweatshops where The Simpsons episodes are created, as well as the factories where millions of pieces of merchandise are made. He even kills a unicorn. If you haven't seen it, it is worth a look.
