The Monster Mash

 {titolo: Monster Mash}
 {autori: Bobby "Boris" Pickett e Leonard Capizzi}
 {tonalitÓ: Accordo di SOL}
 (effetti particolari: porta che cigola, bollicine d'acqua, batteria iniziale). 

Struttura della canzone: Introduzione della batteria in quattro battute, dopo il rumore dello strisciare della porta  e del suono delle bollicine d'acqua. 

Notare l'importanza del coro che svolge una parte significativa, quasi a sostituire il primo canto. Innovativo il cantautorale. Molto originale anche il finale con fraseggi/smorfiati. Goliardia creativa di quel periodo.
