midweek music: rockapella
posted by soe 1:11 am

My favorite Halloween song is probably “Zombie Jamboree,” popularized when I was growing up by Rockapella. It wouldn’t be for another couple decades before I learned that they were simply covering the song, written in the early 1950s by Winston O’Conner (who performed as Lord Intruder and debuted the song as “Jumbie Jamberie”) and popularized on the folk circuit by the Kingston Trio.

The Williams Street Mix, an a capella group at my college, made this one of their most popular tunes. This is a slightly more traditional version of the song than Rockapella usually performed.
