Oingo Boingo Dead Mans Party single

"Dead Man's Party" is a new wave/ska song by American band Oingo Boingo released as the third single from their fifth studio album which shares the same name. It was recorded in August of 1985 and subsequently released on April 29, 1986.

Although it has appeared in one film, a novel, and a few shows, the only one of which that relates to Halloween is the Malcolm in the Middle seventh season episode entitled "Halloween".

The song references a short story by E. F. Benson called "The Bus-Conductor" with the lyric "I hear the chauffeur coming to my door/Says there's room for maybe just one more". This song, which was originally published in Pall Mall Magazine in 1906 is about a hearse driver and has spawned an urban legend about the tale as well as at least one adaptation to television with an episode of The Twilight Zone entitled "Twenty Two".
