classics-iv-spooky#18 – Classics IV – “Spooky” – (1968)

Classics IV, as opposed to the Classics I through III, had a couple of hits in the late 1960s and this is the coolest. It’s been covered a lot, but was originally released as a single by this band in 1967 (the album came out the following year). It was originally instrumental, but the lyrics were a good add, making it perfect for Halloween.
