When the band performs Glen Newton's arrangement of "Monster Mash," Glen plays the part of the professor and Jim Foster or Mark Olson is the voice of Igor. Click here to hear excerpts from the arrangement. Click here to see a YouTube video of the band performing Monster Mash at Edinborough Park.
The Roseville Big Band version of the song includes a modified third verse:
The scene was rocking; all were digging the sound
Of some of the best big bands around.
First Miller, then the Dorseys, took the stand,
And everybody cheered for the Roseville Big Band!
|"I was working in the lab late one night ..."|
|"...and suddenly, to my surprise ..."|
|"...he did the Monster Mash!"|
"Whatever happened to my Transylvanian Twist?"
"When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you."
Another variation on the song is the "Monster Cat Mash," which features different lyrics but uses the same big band arrangement.
