Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers Songfacts
- Pickett was a nightclub entertainer who performed with a group called The Cordials. He wrote "Monster Mash" with his friend Lenny Capizzi. They were both big horror movie fans, and Pickett would do an impression of the actor Boris Karloff (known for playing the monster in many Frankenstein movies) during the speaking part of "Little Darlin'" that went over well in his act. As Capizzi played the piano, he and Pickett put together this song with his Karloff impression in mind. They came up with the plot about Frankenstein's monster starting a dance craze.
- The lyrics are based on the story of Frankenstein, which started as a 1818 novel by Mary Shelley and evolved into various film adaptations. In the story, Dr. Frankenstein creates a creature who comes to life, but what he created is a monster. The book is sober tale of regret and unexpected consequences, but the story is often played for comedy. In this song, the monster throws a big dance party, which is enthusiastically attended by many other creatures of lore (Dracula, Wolfman).
Pickett is imitating Boris Karloff, but is narrating the story as Dr. Frankenstein, not the monster that Karloff famously portrayed.
- Pickett and Lenny Capizzi wrote this song in about two hours. They recorded a demo to tape and brought it to Gary Paxton, lead singer of The Hollywood Argyles ("Alley Oop"). They recorded the song with Paxton and studio musicians Leon Russell, Johnny McCrae and Rickie Page, who were credited as "The Cryptkickers." Paxton, who is credited as the song's producer, also added the sound effects.
Paxton put the song out on his Garpax label and distributed it to radio stations around southern California. Response was overwhelming, as the stations saw their phone banks lighting up with requests for the song. A deal was struck with London Records, who distributed the song worldwide.
- This is a dance song based on the "Mashed Potato" dance craze, which is where The "Mash" in the title comes in.
The original title was "Monster Twist" in an attempt to jump on the Twist craze, but that fad was fading so they tried calling it "Monster Mashed Potato," then settled on "Monster Mash."
- This being 1962, many of the sound effects had to be created in the studio. The sound effects on the song were done as follows:The coffin being opened was made by pulling a rusty nail out of a lump of wood with the claw of a hammer.The bubbling sounds came from blowing through a straw in a glass of water.
The sound of the chains was made by dropping chains onto plywood planks on the record studio floor. >>
- This is arguably the most successful novelty song of all time. Bobby Pickett accomplished the rare feat of reaching the top 100 music chart three times with the same song. On October 20, 1962, the original release hit #1 in the US. The song re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 on August 29, 1970 peaking at #91, and then again on May 5, 1972 when it went all the way to #10. The song has sold over four million copies and continues to be a Halloween favorite. >>
The song made little impact in the UK until it was re-released there in 1973 and reached #3 on the Singles chart. By this time Boris Pickett was a 32-year-old part time New York cab driver.
- Pickett quickly followed up this song with "Monsters' Holiday," where the monsters throw a mischievous Christmas party. The song, which was written by Paul Harrison of "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" fame, did well, reaching #30 and giving Pickett back-to-back holiday hits in 1962. The following year, he reached #88 with "Graduation Day," his first entry that wasn't a novelty song. "The Monster Swim" reached #135 in 1964, which was his last chart appearance until the "Monster Mash" re-issues.
This has been used in several TV shows, including Cheers, The Simpsons and Happy Days. It's also been used in the movies Halloween III and Sweetheart's Dance. In 1995, Monster Mash: The Movie was released, starring Pickett as Dr. Frankenstein.
Boris Karloff loved this song. He performed it on a special Halloween edition of the variety show Shindig! on October 30, 1965.
- Artists who have covered this song include The Beach Boys (on their first live album - Beach Boys Concert, released in 1964), Misfits, Mannheim Steamroller and Sha-Na-Na. >>
Pickett was diagnosed with leukemia in 2000 and died in 2007. In his autobiography Monster Mash: Half Dead In Hollywood, he wrote: "Gone is that conditioned, morbid fear of physical death. I feel that psychological death is much more grueling and painful. Besides, to quote the great Bela Lugosi as Dracula, 'To be dead... to be really dead... that must be glorious!' Poor guy. A vampire's half-life must really suck."
- Around Halloween in 2004, Pickett re-recorded the song as "Monster Slash." The new version was a protest against President George W. Bush and his support for logging, mining and other environmental policies Pickett felt were harmful. Sample lyric: "The guests included big timber, big oil, mining magnates and their sons." >>
- Darlene Love, who sang the holiday favorite "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," claims that she was one of the backing singers on this track, which is plausible as she was one of the most popular session singers at the time. Love occasionally performed the song at Bette Midler's Halloween shows.
- The third release for this song in 1973 was a #1 hit in Australia, spending over 20 weeks on the Top 40 charts. >>
- When a novelty song becomes a surprise hit, a hastily produced album typically follows (see: "Pac-Man Fever"). In this case, the album was called The Original Monster Mash and included songs like "Blood Bank Blues," "Graveyard Shift," "Transylvania Twist," "Me And My Mummy" and "Irresistible Igor."
- Pickett extended the "Monster" brand throughout his career. In 1970, he released "Monster Man Jam," 1973 saw "Monster Concert," and in 1984 he released the inevitable "Monster Rap."
Also an actor, Pickett made appearances on T.J. Hooker, Bonanza and The Beverly Hillbillies, and played Dr. Frankenstein in the 1995 film Monster Mash: The Movie, which also starred Candace Cameron and Jimmie Walker.
According to Mark Steyn's A Song for the Season, Elvis Presley was not a fan of this and called it the dumbest record he ever heard.
"Monster Mash" was the nickname of the professional basketball player Jamal Mashburn.
This was banned by the BBC from their airwaves in 1962 for "being too morbid Win 8 program pack"

Mosaic is an image assembled from small pieces of some material. In a photo mosaic these pieces are small images by itself.
When you look at a photo mosaic from a distance, you see one big image, but as you move close, you understand that it's not just a single, large picture but rather a collection of small, separate images.
If you have ever seen these photo mosaics on magazine covers, posters, billboards or at art galleries then you probably already have seen images that were made with Mazaika software. Our software is used by number of professional and amateur artists and designers all around the world. Mazaika helps them to create eye-catching images. A tiny part of their creations is displayed at our Mazaika Users Gallery. And don't forget to see Gallery page with photo mosaics made by Mazaika.com team.
Many companies that sell custom designed photo mosaic posters use Mazaika software. Our programs guarantee a highest possible quality of result. Artist and designers select Mazaikabecause of it's stability, speed and complete control over mosaic process.Mazaika is the ONLY photo mosaic program thatallows manual changes to every single tile in the finished mosaic. If youdon't like an image, substitute it with another matching candidate image!And even more! You might insert custom images as a sort of personal signature, or as a hidden picture riddle (as in a "Where are they" puzzle book). Or you might need to make sure that a particularly well-liked image is not passed over as a tile; for example that Uncle Ernie appears somewhere in your final mosaic.
Try our free trial version and see how great your photos looks when assembled in photo mosaic of your own design!
Using Mazaika you can make professional looking mosaic pictures from almostany kind and type of image files. You can use even simple icon files(at size 32x32 pixels) to create very impressive mosaic pictures. If you have adigital camera, you can use your own pictures as tiles. Note that even intrial version of Mazaika you have no limit on the image database size andyou could use as many of your own custom picture tiles as you want - orrather, as you have :-).
If you're short on image files - you can download some of our imagecollections (for instance, about 3500 lp/cd covers or windows iconcollection). Also we have placed a part of our postcardcollection that we have used for mosaic creation. There are 700 vintage Soviet New Year postcards here.

Some user comments:
"I am having a great time with your software! It's so cool! Thanks for making something so amazing and affordable! This is by far the best image processing I've seen for the mass market. The speed in which the rendering is done is incredible. I am a software engineer. I know how difficult it is to design an good GUI application. Your software is excellent and you deserve every penny you make on your projects!"
"The ability to do picture placement along a spiral was absolutely revolutionary for us in laying out this image. That feature alone completely solved our primary challenge. If I was stuck with only the option of a simple grid, I'd think long and hard before deciding to use mosaic software for a cover like this.Next thing, the layers.... ..it's a cinch to replace any picture through drag and drop. One can to increase a cell's size, turn it conveniently or even improbably.This offers endless new possibilities, which I have just begun tapping with this image..."
...Vladimir Kapustin, Russia
"Boris your new program works great on new killer Vista computer. All I cansay is DAMN I love it !!!!"

Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett the Crypt-Kickers .
That’s It Uncle Sam
Right. That’s it. Entre nous c’est terminé. After 42 happy years I am getting a divorce from America. From the very emerging of my childhood consciousness I have been aware that in the eyes of billions of people around the world I have won first prize in the lottery of life. I possess it, the thing competed for by everyone from Rupert Murdoch to the most desperate Mexican wetback, and I have it by simple dint of my nativity, on the Puerto Rican Health Scheme, in New York General Hospital, NY, NY.
I am entitled to an American passport. I must confess that this knowledge used vaguely to tinge my sense of identity. My brothers and sisters are British, and so are my parents, and I would like you to know that I am a loyal subject of Her Majesty, speak in an English accent, and for years I have travelled exclusively on a British passport. But my first passport was green, and when we landed at Dover or Heathrow I felt secretly cool to be the one to present his document to be stamped.
Mine were the credentials furnished by the most powerful nation on earth, and signed by former secretary of state Dean Rusk; and when the going has got tough in England it has sometimes crossed my mind that I could yet activate the Schwarzenegger option and flee to the land of opportunity, perhaps beginning as a short-order chef in Miami before winding up as Colorado senator and, inevitably, president.Always glowing at the back of my mind has been the light from that unused escape hatch. Let’s face it, folks, we manage to endure so many of our earthly captivities by fantasising that we have somewhere a half-open door to another job, another career, another life, or indeed, if we are religious, a life of the world to come. The mere thought of that door is a consolation, even if, as things turn out, we never actually go through it.Well, as of this week I slam that door shut, and in some indignation. It is not just that I no longer want an American passport. In fact, what I want is the right not to have an American passport, and it is that right, astoundingly, that the Americans are reluctant to give me.Last Sunday lunchtime we were boarding a flight to Mexico, via Houston, Texas, and we presented six valid British passports. As soon as the Continental Airlines security guy saw my passport, he shook his head. ‘Were you born in New York’ he asked. ‘Have you ever carried an American passport’Yes, I said, but it had long since expired. ‘I am afraid we have a problem,’ he said. ‘The US Immigration say you have to travel on an American passport if you want to enter the United States.’ B-but I’m British, I said, and my children chorused their agreement. Had the guy stuck around a moment longer, I would have told him how jolly British I was — but luckily for him he’d gone off in search of reinforcements.When the ranking officer arrived, the story was the same. ‘I’m sorry, sir,’ he said, ‘but you’ll have to go to the US Embassy tomorrow morning and get a new American passport.’ But I don’t want an American passport, I said, inspiration striking me. I tell you what: I renounce my American citizenship. I disclaim it. I discard it.‘That’s not good enough, sir,’ he said. ‘I need some official document saying that you are no longer American,’ and that, of course, is the point of this piece.I make this formal, public, and, I hope, legally valid renunciation, because as a result of this moronic rule I had to ask my wife (who bore this latest cock-up with amazing good humour) to take the children on her own to Houston, and I then had to spend a stonking sum on another ticket. Because the Americans insisted I was American, and that it was only as an American that I could travel to America, America was the one country that I had to avoid.So I circumnavigated America. I flew via Madrid, managing to beat the rest of my family to Mexico by 45 minutes; and yet I still seethe. It’s not just the stupidity of the rule that gets me. It’s the arrogance. What other country insists that because you can be one of its nationals, then you must be one of its nationals Imagine if we told all British-born Americans that they could not arrive in this country except by use of a British passport. I haven’t seen anything so insanely possessive since the negotiations on the Common Fisheries Policy, when the Irish used to claim that the cod stocks of the Atlantic were still Irish in their fishy souls, even though they had long since emigrated to Portuguese waters.As far as I can interpret the psychology of the rule, which has only been applied since 9/11, it is part of America’s new them-and-us mentality, the Manichaean division of the world into Americans and non-Americans, obliterating any category in between. Listen, buddy, the Americans seem to be saying. You got a right to be American Then you do us the courtesy of travelling on the world’s number one passport when you come here. What you got to be ashamed of, boyWell, I love America. But I don’t like being pushed around and kicked off flights to what, after all, they claim is my home country. Condi, Mr Ambassador, whoever is in charge — I hereby renounce my birthright. Strike me off the list.Consider me, as you put it, an ‘alien’. Even as I write these words I am conscious of the huge potential benefits my children will now never have. Of course, it is true that it is not all jam, carrying an American passport. You tend to be first overboard when your ship is hijacked by Arabs; but then these days the Brits walk the plank pretty soon, too; and think of the advantages, that priceless sense of civis Americanus sum; that the sanctity of your life is guaranteed by the hyperpower.Compare America’s tigerish love of her children with the pitiless indifference we show to British passport-holders from Zimbabwe. The Americans would never allow me to be tried by an international court. The Americans would never let me be extradited to face trial in the UK, even if — particularly if — I was involved in IRA atrocities, while we supinely offer up our subjects without demanding any evidence whatsoever.
These blessings must now remain untested by me and my descendants, and I tender my resignation from the United States, with sadness, but in the knowledge that she is probably big enough to rub along without me. Goodbye and God bless, America Ashampoo Winoptimizer 8 serial
