This Is Halloween, KILLED by Broken Peach

Danny Elfman wrote the quintessential Halloween carol, “This is Halloween” for Tim Burton’s smash hit movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Every nerd knows the original. A lot of us have heard the song covered by the sicko whom is never mentioned. How excellent it is to have this new version — and a LIVE one at that.

I had never heard of the band, Broken Peach, until today. I suspect this track has gained them a lot of new fans since they first published this video in 2015. I love that they set up in a “dreary forest” and put on skull make-up. The supporting floor tom drums are the perfect finishing touch. BRAVO!

Tim Curry’s Halloween Song

I am NOT talking about the Rocky Horror Picture show! I love Rocky, but I recently discovered that he appeared in a motion picture called The Worst Witch in 1986. He played the role of The Grand Wizard.

Here is a scene from that movie where he sings a fetching number about Halloween night.

The image below is a poster that promoted the movie.
