Weird glows gleam where spirits dwell
Restless bones etherealize
Rise as spooks of every size



The Haunted Mansion ride at Disney


Ding! Ding! Winner!

The song is Grim Grinning Ghosts notably sung by these guys...



Face had a good guess and an interesting one since Vincent Price did some ghost host duties for Phantom Manor, the Euro Disney version of the Haunted Mansion (singing busts included).

I know it's Blinded by the Light written by Springsteen. I forget who did the famous version. Since we can't search I'm thinking Foghat.

Next up is Thanksgiving. This song was originally for Thanksgiving but was co-opted by Christmas since it sings of racing across the snow...

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon, Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Blinded by the Light -- Manfred Mann


The lyirc is "Revved up like a deuce." (yeah, right! :) )

Jingle Bells. I was in the choir my senior year in HS. We did over 30 concerts between Thanksgiving and when school let out for Christmas, including 5 in one day! Its been 25+ years. I don't think I will ever forget the lyrics to the songs we did. This was one of them.

Here's a tough one:

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!


According to Danny, it takes exactly one minute and 38 seconds to sing.

Correct! (at least the lyric, writer, and original performer). Joeman got the "hit" version mostly right:

Here's an interesting article on the Manfred Mann's Earth Band version that became a #1 hit: loudersound.com

For some reason, Bruce Springsteen's early work really resonates with me. I think "Born to Run" is the greatest album of all time.

Ding! Ding! Correct!

First published in 1857, "Jingle Bells" was written by James Lord Pierpont (the uncle of J Pierpont Morgan). Peirpont also wrote "Our Battle Flag" which was not an ode to Old Glory but rather to the banner of the Confederacy.

Trivia: for some reason, when it's played in Times Square right after the ball drops, they only play the first half of a verse

Huzzah! A hagis for ThatDonGuy! These lines lead the second stanza... Since most don’t know the words to the first, or even the chorus, it’s pretty rare for anyone to guess. Did you use the hint?
