“Boris, The Spider” by The Who – Now A Halloween Standard

This classic track by The Who was not intended specifically for Halloween, but in the recent decades, it has been added to the ever growing Halloween music repertoire.

The song may be inaccurate in assuming that the spider is male. Most of the spiders that people encounter are female. I don’t think that The Who intended any sexism, but maybe it should be “Natasha, The Spider”.

It was first released on the debut album The Who in 1966. It also appeared on an EP called A Quick One
