Nifty Halloween YouTube Thing: The Voodoo Walk

Here’s one for your your next Monster Mash: “The Voodoo Walk,” a 1962 novelty tune from Sonny Richard’s Panics with Cindy & Misty. The group, later renamed The Panic Buttons, only released a handful of 45s over their short career, and this sexy surf-tinged single (dig that guitar solo!) is unlike their usual R&B/soul sound. It’s also sultry as all get-out, thanks to sultry vocal work by “Cindy & Misty” (who also penned the song). Transylvania Twist indeed.
