  1. Wow, that is a pretty extensive list! One of my favorite songs about the moon is “Bad Moon Rising”. It was written by Creedence Clearwater Revival but I really like the the cover by Thea Gilmore.

  2. Thanks! I’m always on the lookout for more songs with a Halloween vibe. I recently discovered a rockabilly tune by Jumpin’ Gene Simmons called “Haunted House,” although I feel like the story cut off before really finishing. One of my favorite oldie Halloween songs is “Batman, Wolfman, Frankenstein, or Dracula” by the Diamonds. 😁
