Dedicated to all the great lost and little-heard Halloween songs that get swept under the "Monster Mash" tide every October. Crawl out of that radio man's dungeon and listen!

It's a zombified weekend here on "Whatever happened to the Transylvania Twist?"! To start off, we've got geek rocker Jonathan Coulton and a crowd of his brain-hungry zombie friends making a very reasonble plea as to why you should let them in your house. I mean, come one -- they're not going to eat your eyes.
Coulton used to write software until he left his day job in 2005 to pursue music full time. During that year, he started a project called "Thing A Week," where he recorded a new song every week and released it on his website for free. Several of these became internet hits, such as his folky cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back." He still releases a lot of free music on his website and also holds the sweet gig of Contributing Troubadour for Popular Science magazine, a favorite of mad scientists everywhere.
So anyway, back to your brains... ummm, can these guys have them?
