Ghouls Galore- John Hawkshaw- The Monster Club Soundtrack

As I prepare to watch a solid hour of The Alfred Hitchcock Show on Antenna TV, I am trying to sneak in a five minute interlude to listen to the song "Ghouls Galore" by Alan Hawkshaw, from the Monster Club Soundtrack. While you're here, could you do me a favor and take just a moment to bookmark my website, share it on Twitter, Facebook, wherever is easiest for you? 

Back to ghouls. 

A ghoul is a (folkloric) monster associated with graveyards and consuming human flesh, often classified as undead. The oldest surviving literature that mention ghouls is likely One Thousand and One Nights.[1] The term was first used in English literature in 1786, in William Beckford's Orientalist novelVathek,[2] which describes the ghūl of Arabian folklore.

By extension, the word ghoul is also used in a derogatory sense to refer to a person who delights in the macabre, or whose profession is linked directly to death, such as a gravedigger.
