Good for you Spook, it appears that you have mastered the video posting. :clapping:

Madonna videos need never be excused this is written into the forums guidelines. <- That's not actually true at all as I well I know.

I LOVE Marilyn Manson and I love his cover of the Eurythmics track and I'm going to be cavalier in suggesting it is marginally better than the original version. I saw him sing it live on a darkened stage with one lamp (which doubled as a microphone hanging above him) and the performance was magical. I think he's lost his way a little of late but he is immensely talented. He also appears in my next video choice which is a superb homage to horror movies and perfect for Halloween. I remember The Murderdolls back when they were The Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 and I recently bought their career retrospective CD and DVD collection called "The Little Box Of Horrors" and it is superb. They are a must for fans of kitsch horror. Here they are in their latest incarnation and watch out for Marilyn Manson's appearance.

Happy Halloween.

I don't know if there was a music video for it, but a song I associate with Halloween now is Mr. Sandman by The Chordettes. It was released as a single in the UK in December 1954. I've also heard a version by Dickie Valentine (also released as a single in the UK in December 1954). But The Chordettes' song is my favourite version. The Four Aces (featuring Al Alberts) released a single called Mr. Sandman in January 1955, but I don't know if this was the same song.

Source of the UK single releases above is a book called The Virgin Book of British Hit Singles.

Hmm...not sure which version, and I'm too lazy to check imdb.com, but both are candidates for appearing in Back to the Future, since it happened in 5 November 1955.

I'm not depressed, just quiet.

I don't think there is a music video as such but someone has uploaded it to Youtube with an image montage so it's better than nothing I guess. I love that song. I first heard it in the movie "Clue" and was hooked from that point on and you're right, it would make a great addition to any Halloween tracklist.

Now this took a little tracking down but I found it in the end. Not only is it a great suggestion for a Halloween song but it was used in Millennium itself. What more could you ask?

Happy Halloween!

Found Mr. Sandman on YouTube. Is this considered a Halloween song? I will post the lyrics.

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

(Bung, bung, bung, bung)

Make him the cutest that I've ever seen

(Bung, bung, bung, bung)

Give him two lips like roses in clover

Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone

Don't have nobody to call my own

Please turn on your magic beam

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

(bung, bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,

bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,

bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,

bung,bung)

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Make him the cutest that I've ever seen

Give him the word that I'm not a rover

Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone

Don't have nobody to call my own

Please turn on your magic beam

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Mister Sandman, bring us a dream

Give him a pair of eyes with a "come hither" gleam

Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci

And lots of wavy hair like Liberacci

Mister Sandman, someone to hold

Would be so peachy before we're to old

So please turn on your magic beam

Mister Sandman, bring us

Please, please, please

Mister Sandman, bring us a dream
