Halloween 1966, Volume 1: Nightmare in Space

COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN 2012
HORROR IN SPACE
DAY 4 - 27 DAYS TILL HALLOWEEN

THIS POST WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY!  LISTEN OR DOWNLOAD NOW, BEFORE IT IS GONE! 

My original plan had been to do one mix of songs for Halloween with the theme "Halloween 1966," featuring a variety of Halloween songs from that year.  I was going to post it later this month when I entered the Halloween 1966 phase of my Countdown to Halloween.  My mix of songs kept growing however, until I decided I needed to break it up into several different smaller chunks, each linked together by a loose theme.  The first volume is "Nightmare in Space,"  which works nicely with the "Horror in Space" posts I am currently making for the Countdown, so I decided to post this one early.
The main tracklist is:
  • Perrey-Kingsley - Cosmic Ballad
  • Florence Marly - Space Boy
  • The Space Ghost Theme Song
  • Perrey-Kingsley - Swan's Splashdown
  • The Byrds - Mr. Spaceman
  • The Eyes - When the Night Falls
  • Q65 - I Got Nightmares
  • The Answers - Just a Fear
  • The Sonics - Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
In addition to the main tracks, the mix is also peppered with 1966 audio clips from Star Trek, Batman, The Chamber of Horrors, and The Navy Vs. The Night Monsters.

The song "Space Boy" was originally recorded for the soundtrack of the 1966 film "The Queen of Blood" which I reviewed a couple of days ago.  It was never officially released, but has shown up on several Frank Zappa bootlegs over the years, as he co-produced and played some of the music on it.
