Welcome to the Halloween spook fest and the first of many tracks for Project Kingdom Thirteen! This 6 part acapella cover (XJ6) blends Danny Elfman's "This is Halloween" from Disney's "The Nightmare before Christmas" with "Spooks of Halloween Town" by Yoko Shimomura for Kingdom Hearts featuring new lyrics as well!

Special thanks to voice actor Jamie Norwood for providing the voice of the Clown with the Tear-away Face!

Video version can be found here:

Verse 1 (Narration):
Let me tell you a story,
Once upon an October, beyond the Hinterlands and the Spiral Hill,
Lies a gloomy, dank town that a boy, a duck, and franken dog had the unfortunate
pleasure of stumbling upon,
Their hearts set on a key hole, yet woefully unlocked the gates to the town of fear.
There they met the pumpkin king! A talented spook in dismay, for he needed the heartless to dance today.
With the aid of the doctor, they discovered that a heart would be the fix. The boy, the duck, and the dog set out to concoct a heart. Little did they know, there were darker shadows than the ones cast by the tombs of the town.
Will they survive?

Verse 2:
Boys and girls of every age,
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?
Come with us and you will see,
This, our town of Halloween,
This is Halloween,
this is Halloween,
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night oh,
This is Halloween,
everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors scream and die of fright
It's our town,
everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

Jamaal: I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

Jamie: I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song


Verse 3:
Shadows in the moon
Filling dreams to the brim with fright
Stranger creatures stirring
Filled with malice and blight
No boy is safe,
Your duck is cooked,
Your dog can not protect you now,
Blissful frights
and soulless ghouls
You can't escape their ghastly howls
(Consumed by the night)

The heartless are dancing
Stealing souls and hearts away
Ripping, screaming, cunning spooks
The wills of shadows they obey

Putridly delighting,
Pleasantly frightening

Time to play,
roll the dice and
Bet on black with your life!

This terror crawling in my skin is
one that we must simply just adore
Jack you have outdone yourself
can't wait to see what next year has in store

Ohh ohh ohh ohh Oooooo….

Angels won’t fly,
Ohh ohh ohh ohh,
Angels won’t fly
