She asked me name my foe then. I said the need within some men to fight and kill their brothers without thought of Love or God. Ken Hensley

Robert Pickett recorded "Monster Mash" in 1962 with, among others, Gary S. Paxton ("Alley Oop") and Leon Russell. There was a Christmas themed "Monsters' Holiday" also released in 1962. Whether it or "Transylvania Twist" charted, I don't know. Novelty records like this series and artists like Weird Al are too rare nowadays, IMO.

Monsters' Holiday hit #30 in 1962; Transylvania Twist did not reach the charts (not sure if it was released as a single).

Technically they had a follow up minor hit that pretty much sucked, so for all intents and purposes, they were a one hit wonder.

I think Youtube has changed. My adblocker/malware shows stuff then blanks it, then it shows, then blanks. It does it on other sites too.  :shrug:

I have found if I go to YouTube and use their search bar and then right click on the one I want and copy link location it gives me the accurate code for here. Screenshot.



Right click and copy link location on the first one gives me this:

@skeeter

Just highlight and cut the url of the video in the address bar , remove the S and paste in the postng area.

You have the mobile url in your post which wont work.
