Music In Costume: Vincent Price dresses up as Bobby “Boris” Pickett

Vincent Price always had a musical side to him. With that voice and history as a stage actor, it’s not surprising that the man could sing. Most of his singing is a bit of a sprechgesang, or the speak-singing that you can find in any B-52s song. But, when you can get away with that, do it. And Vincent does it on his rendition of Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s Halloween staple, “The Monster Mash.”

Listening to the “Monster Mash” this time of year is akin to drinking something pumpkin-flavored – even if you don’t WANT TO, it’s going to happen. I like the song. Pickett’s career is more than just the “Monster Mash” so look him up.
