A one hit wonder he may be, but Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett’s one hit still resonates today, getting something of an annual airing around Halloween. That hit, of course, is Monster Mash, with Bobby doing his best Boris Karloff impersonation over a Mashed Potato dance influenced musical track. It sounds a bizarre combination but it proved a monster hit, topping the US charts for two weeks when originally released in 1962. It would finally crack the British charts in 1973 when it hit #3 and has, since the advent of digital downloads, returned to the British charts in 2008, 2009 and 2010. Oh, and there was an album released in 1962 featuring more of the same!
