Our favorite Halloween song here at IM Boston is the delightful 1962 hit single, “Monster Mash”, written by Somerville’s very own Bobby “Borris” Pickett. His father was a theater manager and he grew up with a love of horror movies that came through in this particular hit song of his.
It hit #1 on the Billboard hot 100 that year and has stayed a classic for this time of year ever since. Mr. Pickett passed away in 2007, but his love for Halloween lives on every year and we are proud to call him a local.
