The only one I can think of is Dem Bones Dem Bones Dem Dry Bones, don't know any more than that.

That’s what I started to sing as soon as I saw it! 😁

💀💀☠️🦴🦴 😁 I was looking for a skeleton but they don't have any on the emojis!!

😜😝🤣

😆😆

That is a great answer🦹🏻‍♀️

Same as Springcross- dem bones is the only one I can think of. I was also thinking of Dance Macabre but that's a classical piece.

Clever you!

This is Halloween by Marilyn Manson and I do recall Andrew Gold doing a kids song which was called something like Scary Spooky Skeletons or Spooky Scary ....

Hope DSpooky and his OH are well.

I remember the Funnybones book

Not sure I do.

Ahhh funnybones! Intermittently a favourite although they are slowly outgrowing it!

The first thing I thought of was goodness that middle skeleton looks like me trying to get up in the morning!

Loved Carry on Screaming and the bit where Fenella Fielding lies on the chaise long and asks the inspector 'Do you mind if I smoke?' and then vapours and smoke exude from her body! 🛋️💨👻

I know what you mean! 😊

The start of easter hols sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts

I saw Jason & The A's in the cinema when it first came out, great stuff.

What about Bones by the Killers?

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Great idea!☠️

Sympathy for the devil - Rolling Stones 1968

...and for some reason Jive Talkin’ - Bee Gees 🤣

Nothing by Boneyards M?

Hollow Bones by Rival Sons. It’s not going to be that but they are a fave band of mine and that track/album came to mind’.

Bring Me To Life by Evanesence

Great tangent thinking! We are a bright bunch

Indeed! 😁

And anything by Boney M 😁

Hope you all had a spooktacular evening!My first thoughts started with the picture 1493 drawn by Michael Wolgemut.

Then it reminded me of secondary school Music and Movement 1971 when in a progressive moment our PE teacher had us prancing around to Danse Macabre by Saint Saen 1874.

But my favourite has to be Human Rag n bone Man 2016.

Thanks for joining in and being such a great BODY of people.

Keep well and safe. ☠️😈😱💀👻😈

I used to do music and movement to Saint Saen too at my infant/junior school late 60s/1970 including Carnival of the Animals and Danse Macabre! 😁

Wish I could do the movement part now🥰

I can a bit still but not like then!

Oh my goodness- music and movement in the 60s! That brings back memories 🤗🐰

Green230461 in reply to MadBunny

But are they good ones or cold in knickers and vests?

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to Green230461

Knickers and vests🙄Although thankfully it was indoors in the school hall . I remember the parquet wood floors and the smell of polish .It must have had some positive effect on me as I eventually became a drama teacher!

Green230461 profile image
Green230461 in reply to MadBunny

Same here! Did a drama degree and ended up as a primary teacher for 35 years 😂

MadBunny in reply to Green230461

I started out training to do primary but ended up doing secondary- did 35 yrs too til RA put an end to it. Although I did manage to keep going for 5 yrs after diagnosis, I had to give in in the end 😁🐰

Well done to Pip. 💀💀💀🦴🦴🦴 Thanks for making it happen Green. x

I have enjoyed it! Will do something for Christmas too 🥰

👍 🥰
