Awesome Old Song of the Week Halloween Edition: "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon

I'm pretty pumped about this choice for today.  It's not just the obvious Thriller or Monster Mash; I legitimately love this song and would have gotten around to picking it sometime anyway.

Werewolves of London has a number of ridiculous and funny lines, one of my favorites being "I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's; And his hair was perfect."  In fact, Warren Zevon's 1978 lyrics are so bizarre that the song's wikipedia page doesn't even attempt to figure them out.

And in typical pop music fashion, a few years ago Kid Rock stole the background beat for his hit All Summer Long.
