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, after all.
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?
