“Spooky” – Classics IV

This song in not expressly intended for Halloween (though the holiday is mentioned within).  I find it perfectly groovy anytime but it does come to mind more frequently this time of year.

It is a bit spooky, isn’t it?  The whistling sound with occasional cowbell that might be a ghost or maybe it’s just the wind.  The guitar, the sax… It’s jazzy and cool.  I always picture some sort of mysterious Morticia Addams-type lady as the subject of this song.  [Ed. Note: I recall telling my mom when I was little that I liked the name Morticia and thought it would be a good name for my future daughter.  She explained to me why that wouldn’t be the best idea.  I didn’t care.  I liked it anyway and I still do.]  She’s beautiful and sexy in an understated way but you feel like you might not know all there is to know about her.  And what you don’t know might be dark.  Really she’s just into taxidermy and has always been ostracized because of it, and she prefers to wear black, and she enjoys gravehunting, but other than that she’s totes normal.  She will definitely appreciate your Halloween evening proposal.  The cover art, which I’ve only just discovered, acts in support of the theory I’ve held all along.

In summary: Guys dig spooky chicks.
