Song’s from the Movies

Lets get this Halloween scare-fest week underway with, what I think is, an appropriate salute to Halloween.

I confess, when I first saw this movie I did not like it. To much Halloween and not enough Christmas; too many songs, I don’t know I just couldn’t get my head around it.

Being a big Tim Burton fan though I had to give it another go so when it was released on disc I did just that. Now it’s my number one Halloween Movie and in my top five of Christmas movies. Yes Peeps I love it, love it, love it!

The movie’s soundtrack was released in 1993 on Walt Disney Records. When the movie was re-release in Disney Digital 3-D in 2006, a special edition of the soundtrack was also released and among those that featured on a bonus disc was none other than Marilyn Manson singing this song. Who’d have guest (titter).

Sing along if you can…

TNBCThis Is Halloween

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbours gonna die of fright
It’s our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under your stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don’t we love it now?
Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise

‘Round that…

‘Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
Something’s waiting no to pounce, and how you’ll

Scream! This is Halloween
Red ‘n’ black, and slimy green

Aren’t you scared?

Well, that’s just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everybody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the “who” when you call, “Who’s there?”
I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lumplings everywhere
Life’s no fun without a good scare

That’s our job, but we’re not mean
In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don’t we love it now?

Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise
Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everybody scream
Won’t ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man Jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)
La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)

Performed By: Marilyn Manson. Written By: Danny Elfman
