Song # 6: The Vampire


I’ve been unable to find anything about Archie King. I’m guess in that this is due to the volume of Halloween novelty songs coming out during the 50’s and 60’s. The nuclear age made a new type of nightmare for the populous to be afraid of, the atomic monster. All of the old type of monsters became passé. Then all of the old monsters became popular in a different way. They were characters that were considered hip and cool for even children to be into; the scariness was not the same. Think of The Adams Family and The Munsters. There were tons of monster songs released at this time, like this Doo Wop classic.
