    Sorry it's a bit late, but here's a really tasty old school cumbia: Los Corraleros De Majagual - El Vampiro.

    Edit: or is it merengue? Or both? Not too sure.

    Pity the poor DJ who does not visit these hallowed (no pun intended) pages.

    Another late one: Fruko - A La Memoria De La Muerto. Halloween related and good for Day Of The Dead.

    These online translation things are inevitably filled with errors, but here's what I got for Ublabadu:

    I am, ublabadu
    tu eres, ubladuba
    You are, ubladuba
    mira nosotros, ublabaremos
    Look us ublabaremos
    y ellos, ublabaran.
    and they, ublabaran.
    Hay que cantar un son
    There they are singing a
    porque esta es la sociedad
    because this society is

    are there to sing a
    porque esta es la actualidad.
    because this is now.
    Pero yo soy, Ublabsdu
    But I am, Ublabsdu
    mira tu eres, asaroriá
    you are watching, asaroriá
    rumbón, pa' los sabias.
    rumbón, pa 'the wise.
    Coro: Ublabadu, ublabada.
    Chorus: Ublabadu, ublabada.
    Ay Ublabadu, y ubladuba mama!!
    Ublabadu Oh, and breast ubladuba!
    Oye que rico, que bueno está.
    Listen to rich, which is good.

    Let the good rumba.

    That I took the brunette.
    Y me la llevo to'a la noche a bailar.
    And I'll take the night to dance to'a.
    Yo vine pa' ver, yo vine pa' ver
    I came pa 'see, I came pa' view

    Que cante ese coro ahora.
    To sing the chorus now.
    Que todo mundo quiere cantar.
    Everybody wants to sing.
    Repitan, Ublabadu, ubladuba pata.
    Repeat, Ublabadu, ubladuba leg.
    Porque aqui la gente quieren bailar.
    Because people want to dance here.
    Ublaba, ublaba, ublaba, ublabarabari

    Birongo, biribirira breast.
    Arranca la rumba buena.
    Start good rumba.
    Que la morena quiere bailar.
    The brunette wants to dance.
    UBLABADU, UBLABADA.
    UBLABADU, UBLABADA.
    Dale pa'lante y nunca pa'tras.
    Give pa'lante and never pa'tras

    Even my minimal Spanish can spot some of the errors above, but I still don't get the connection between this song and Halloween.

    Personally, that practice track that goes..
    uno dos tres.. cinco, seis, siete..
    repeatedly brings me a creeping dread.. :)

    But remember: no one could learn how to dance until that was released.

    he is calling the girl a "hechicera" a kind of witch, and describing her behaviour as black magic.

    Wow, this thread is a treasure trove. Thanks for the collection and the great ideas.

    While on the subject, it seems that the Halloween-themed bachatas bit never got answered. Does anyone have suggestions? I'm looking through my library and will share what I come up with.

    I think some Bachata lyrics are ghastly enough to fit Halloween standards.
