HALLOWEEN!!!!!!

A scary song!!!



And here you are the lyrics:

THIS IS HALLOWEEN

Dani Elfman “The Nightmare before Christmas” (Tim Burton´s Film)
Performed by the Citizens of Halloween
Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It's our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under yours stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
Something's waiting no to pounce, and how you'll...

Scream! This is Halloween
Red 'n' black, slimy green

Aren't you scared?

Well, that's just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everybody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"
I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lumplings everywhere
Life's no fun without a good scare

That's our job, but we're not mean
In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next surprise
Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everybody scream
Wont' ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la-la la, Halloween! Halloween! [Repeat]



If you want sing the song in karaoke:

THE PLANETS (HOLST)

This is the best-known work by the English composer Gustav Holst.
It is a suite of seven movements, each of which Holst was given the name of a planet (and its corresponding god in Roman mythology):
Mars, the bringer of war.
Venus, the bringer of peace.
Mercury, the winged messenger.
Jupiter, the bringer of joy.
Saturn, the bringer of old age.
Uranus, the magician.
Neptune, the mystic.

So, Holst tried to represent the astrological significance in music / mythology of each planet.
Do you guess which planet is missing? ...
This work was composed between 1914 and 1918.

Here you are a slide about this work:
