Spooky is a very subjective concept. Some people are fine with dark woods and ghost stories, while others find such things terrifying. I’m pretty much a scaredy-cat, not so much regarding anything supernatural (because I’m a total skeptic), but because of actual dangerous things like snakes and bears and bitey bugs and human beings prowling around up to no good.
Given that, for today’s offering, I present a song: “Spooky, ” originally recorded in 1967 as an instrumental. Lyrics were added for the Classics IV and the song became a hit, reaching no. 3 on the charts. It was written by Mike Shapiro, Harry Middlebrooks Jr., and James Cobb. Later, Cobb and another Classics IV bandmate Dean Daughtry joined the Atlanta Rhythm Section and re-recorded the song in 1979. That version reached 17 on Billboard. Though I love ARS, I prefer the Classics IV’s “Spooky.”
