31 Songs Of Halloween: Sheb Wooley: The Purple People Eater


The Purple People Eater is one of the best known novelty songs of all time, composed and made famous by Sheb Wooley in 1958 and it's about an one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater who eats purple people and wants to be in a rock 'n' roll band.

The song inspired a sci-fi comedy film of the same name to be made 30 years after its release and still to this day it's considered a Halloween classic.
