My version of "Anything Can Happen On Halloween" from the 1986 television film THE WORST WITCH featuring songs by Charles Strouse (music) & Don Black (lyrics).

Growing up in the 80's, this movie was always on HBO during the month of October. I have fond memories of my sister and I sitting and watching this movie waiting to leave the house to go trick or treating.

I used my old Yamaha DX7 synthesizer to get alot of the sounds along with sprinkles of plug-in samples of other synths from that decade.

lyrics

I wouldn't change places
With anyone tonight
We'll carve pumpkin faces
And watch the witches flight

Every human heart will shudder
Every soul will shake with fear
Tonight, the creepiest
Tonight, the scariest
Tonight, the most wonderful night
ahhhhhhhhf the year

Anything can happen on Halloween
Your dog could turn into a cat
There may be a toad in your bass guitar
Or your sister could turn into a bat
Christmas time brings the snow
Summer time brings the sun
But on Halloween your blood begins to run
Something's funky going down now*

Anything can happen on Halloween
It's better than a video
Gremlins gonna mess up every cassette
From London to Idaho

April first can be fun
New Year's Eve is a bore
But on Halloween your flesh begins to crawl
Oh, I'm losing control*

Anything can happen on Halloween
Your toenails grow long and your hair turns green
Your teacher could become a sardine
Your dentist could turn into a queen.
Has anybody seen my tambourine*
I may start playing
Begin the begin
The craziest night you've ever seen
This hairy, scary, creepy, crawly,
Halloween.
