Many great songs have been written over the last five decades that capture the spirit and frightful spirit of Halloween. However, when it comes down to expressing everything that is macabre about All Hallows' Eve, none of them hold a candle when compared to "Bela Lugosi's Dead" By Bauhaus.
In a nutshell, Bauhaus was a massively influential band comprised of brothers Kevin and David Haskins, Peter Murphy and Daniel Ash. The Northampton band formed in 1978 and split up in 1983. Murphy went solo, although he did make an album with Mick Karn of Japan under the name of Dalis Car. Ash, and Kevin Haskins formed Tones on Tail with Glen Campling before settling in as Love and Rockets with David J (Haskins) replacing Campling in the band. David J also recorded several solo albums and collaborated with Alan Moore.
