For Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween here on The Rock Father, I'm taking us back into musical waters for a pair of tracks from MR. SINGER and the SHARP COOKIES. If you caught my column over at Chicago Parent this past Monday, you'll notice that I already featured one of these, but here I'm giving you two songs to check out. From their 2005 album, MUDDY WATER BEAVER DAM BAND, comes "Haunted Haus" - while "Cartoon Saloon" comes from their 2012 record, BOUNCING BALL OF ENERGY. Both are more than appropriate for your 2013 Halloween Playlist, and should you want to hear them live - you're in luck! Mr. Singer and the Sharp Cookies will be performing at the Old Town School of Folk Music THIS Sunday, and they've got shows booked for the 30 & 31 as well...
