TWW Poll: Best Halloween Songs

Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand. – Rod Temperton

With Halloween coming up this Thursday, I thought I would get away from politics for a day or two and post a poll. This one is about Halloween songs.

Werewolves of London (Sample)
Monster Mash (Sample)
Thriller (Sample)
Ghostbusters (Sample)
Addams Family Theme (Sample)
Munsters Theme (Sample)

The results will be released on Thursday.
