about

Ten years ago in the fall of 2012, we put together this cover of Dead Man's Party by Oingo Boingo for some Halloween shows we played and it really stuck with us. It's become a staple in our set over recent years and we've grown quite fond of it so we figured it was time for us to give it its proper dues in the studio.

Stream it, dance to it, sing along, share it with your friends, add it to your spooky playlists (and your regular ones) and enjoy! We hope you love it!

lyrics

I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go
Walking with a dead man over my shoulder
Waiting for an invitation to arrive
Going to a party where no one's still alive

I was struck by lightning
Walking down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It's a dead man's party
Who could ask for more?
Everybody's coming leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door

Don't run away it's only me

Got my best suit and my tie
With a shiny silver dollar on either eye
I hear the chauffeur coming to my door (Coming to my door)
He says there's room for maybe just one more

I was struck by lightning
Walking down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It's a dead man's party
Who could ask for more?
Everybody's coming leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door

Don't run away it's only me
Don't be afraid of what you can't see
