I know it's not Halloween but what exactly is "The Monster Mash"? by Beckers Q:

A: words and music by Bobby Pickett and Lenny Capizzi
I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the monster mash
From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes
They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolf Man
Dracula and his son
The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"
They played the mash
They played the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They played the mash
It caught on in a flash
They played the mash
They played the monster mash
Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He opened the lid and shook his fist
And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"
It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash
The monster mash
And it's a graveyard smash
It's now the mash
It's caught on in a flash
It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash
Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
And my monster mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you
Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash
The monster mash
And do my graveyard smash
Then you can mash
You'll catch on in a flash
Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash

A: I was working in the lab late one night

It caught on in a flash

What does "subway crush" and "Monster Mash" mean in this sentence? by Insanity Q: -Beijing's subway crush turned into the Monster Mash on Saturday night, as approximately 100 costumed foreigners spooked local commuters with a mobile party on the Line 2 train.

A: Dear Runnerdx
Thank you for your question.
Basically, the sentence is a play on words with 'crush' having a similar meaning to 'mash'. The 'subway crush' means that many people try and get into the same tube or subway train, causing a crush. 'Monster Mash' refers to a group of monsters, or people dressed up as monsters, as part of a Halloween celebration. There were a few people in costume on London's tube system on Saturday and this seems to have also occurred on the Beijing Subway, with costumed people getting on packed tube trains occupied by other people.

How do you do The Monster Mash? by Ravenchild721 Q:

A: The steps are basically the same as ‘The Mashed Potato’ and are explained along with other dance steps at the source link below. The basic difference is that ‘The 'Monster Mash also incorporates creepy, ghoul-like arm movements and transitions.
How ‘The Monster Mash,’ sung by Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett, came to be:
Following his discharge from the army in 1961, Bobby Pickett moved to Los Angeles to try his hand at show business. As a member of a vocal group called "The Cordials," he would do impersonations between songs, often using his impression of Boris Karloff, which was a crowd favorite. His friend and fellow band mate, Lenny Capizi, suggested that the pair try to take advantage of the novelty song craze that was happening in the early sixties by writing a tune around Bobby's Karloff imitation. It took nearly a year after the suggestion to get around to it, but when they did, the two worked out "The Monster Mash" in about an hour and a half.
Boris Karloff did sing "The Monster Mash" on a mid 1960s TV variety show. Later in 1962, prior to the Christmas season, Bobby "Boris" Pickett released the lesser known of his only two hit songs, ‘Monsters' Holiday.’ However, “The Monster Mash’ remains a perennial favorite around Halloween. Pickett died earlier this year on on April 25 at the age of 69 in Los Angeles, California, due to complications from leukemia.

What is the 'Monster Mash'? by emailkevinhereat Q: I know it is a song.
But is it a dance?
Is it when you electrocute dead bodies and watch them jiggle like jell-O?
WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

A: About the Monster Mash Song and Dance
The original version of Monster Mash was recorded and released as a single in October 1962, by Bobby “Boris” Pickett and The Crypt Kickers. It was released both as a 7 inch single and on the full length album The Original Monster Mash, a monster theme album. The song was written by Pickett and Lenny Capizzi.
Monster Mash was inspired by an ad lib Pickett performed on stage at a concert with his band The Diamonds. He did an imitation of horror movie actor Boris Karloff, which was a big hit with the audience. Pickett and Capizzi decided to run with the success of that and to create an entire song around that voice and a monster theme. The resulting song told the story of a monster who created a new dance and was sung in a Karloff-style voice. Pickett also imitated Bela Lugosi at one point during the song.
There was also a dance the accompanied the song, which was a takeoff on the popular Mashed Potato dance of the time. The Monster Mash borrowed the foot steps from the Mashed Potato but added lurching, “monster arms” to the mix. The Monster Mash dance was supposedly the dance created by the monster in the song.
The song went to number one on the Billboard Charts in the U.S. but was banned from the radio in the UK. It was re-released in 1970 and in 1973, when it was finally played on the radio in the UK and charted at number three there. Pickett has also played extensively with the theme over the years, releasing a few different versions of the song, including Monster Holiday and Monster Rap. He wrote and starred in a 1995 movie based on the song and has also adapted the lyrics for Climate Mash, a song about global warming.
Monster Mash has been covered countless times, but the best known cover version is by The Misfits. That version was released in 1999 on limited edition colored vinyl and has become a sought after collector’s item.
