Nothing too serious, but if you're looking for a costume for Halloween, and who isn't, listen to the radio and listen to the lyrics of the song you're singing along with. Whether you're in tune does not make any difference. Songs can bring good and bad memories but they can also help with costumes.

Here is just a sample of a few or more.

  • "Elvira" by the Oak Ridge Boys. She is also Mistress of the Dark.
  • "Witchy Woman" by the Eagles. No explanation there.
  • "Clap for the Wolfman" by Guess Who
  • "Fireman" by George Strait
  • "Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves" by Cher
  • "Hillybilly Shoes" by Montgomery Gentry
  • "American Soldier" by Toby Keith
  • "Whatcha Gonna do with a Cowboy" by Chris LeDoux and "Should've been a Cowboy" by Toby Keith
  • The Village People were thinking it was always Halloween -- Construction worker, Indian, Cop, Leather guy, Cowboy and Soldier.

That's just a small list of costume ideas. Of course, we can't forget about some classic and new classic Halloween songs. Some are the same.

  • "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon
  • "Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett
  • "Spiders and Snakes" by Jim Stafford
  • "Legend of Wooley Swamp" by Charlie Daniels' Band
  • Addams Family Theme Song
  • "Thriller" by Micheal Jackson
  • "Hotel California" and "Witchy Woman," both by the Eagles

I know there are some missing, maybe they will inspire you to think of more. Just throwing some ideas out there to get started. It is fun to see what costumes the trick or treaters come up with, or maybe mostly their parents. There might be ideas in thrift stores, too.

The sun is shining above ... Think Happy Thoughts.
