    Just had a recommendation: El Twist Del Esqueleto by Oscar Arriagada, I think it's 60s Latin rock from Chile, there's also a Colombian cover by Los Teenagers.

    They sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks! Remember that cartoon? I always wondered why Perico used those funny voices... Camaron isn't the only song he did that on, also at the end of "Guarachimbe".

    How about "Quitate La Mascara" (Ray Barretto y Adalberto Santiago)? I know it's not scary or anything, but the title fits Halloween, don't you think?

    A good excuse to play one of my favourites.

    Rey Reyes - Vampira. Love that tune, salsa Dominicana.

    it's correct. "Evelio y La Rumba" is not a halloween related song. thought he was dead from the first song... :D

    All this songs will be played in tomorrow's "Salsa De La Mata!" show plus "La Caldera Del Diablo" from Zodiac's.
     
  12. Another one that I think fit the Halloween 'spirit' is Eddie Lebron's 'Yo Te Lo Dedico' from his album 'Ghetto records presents Eddie Lebron'. At least the evil laugh in the beginning :)

    Unfortunately not easy to get as I think it has never been on CD and the original vinyl were on the small Joe Bataan label Ghetto records which is pretty legendary among collectors.

    There are bootleg copies around, but sound is so-so and quite far from how the original LP sounds.

    Here's a merengue for you - Cuco Valoy El Brujo, I can't work out the lyrics but I know the title is suitable (if anybody can confirm that the lyrics are apppropriate please do so).

    Incidentally, if any DJs are playing Halloween parties to Spanish speaking audiences who have a sense of humour, I really recommend the Oscar Arriagada track, even though it's not remotely salsa:

    Oh and there's another tune called Brujeria, by Los Nemus Del Pacifico.

    yeah you could relate it to Halloween. The story is mostly about a woman who visits a "Brujo" a Santero or witch doctor. It fits Halloween!! Nice.

    merengues:
    -El Muerto - Tulile
    -El Velorio- Tulile (this is a fast merengue)
    - La Cleptomana - Hermanos Rosarios (old school merengue good one)
    - Bomba - Hermanos Rosarios (fits into Halloween)
    - Serpiente Mala - Olga Tañon
    -Muchacho Malo - Olga Tañon
    - Es Mentiroso - Olga Tañon
    - El Cuco - Toño Rosario (this is by default)!!

    Wish I'd found this before we finalized our halloween party set list. I did cook up an arrangement of Thriller though! Hopefully I'll have some clips I can post after the show.
     
  20. ...or maybe 'Pobre Diabla' - Don Omar (reggaeton) or any salsa version of that song?
