Seems like everyone has been raving about “Wednesday”, Tim Burton’s spinoff of “The Addams Family". So, we’re bringing some music data to the party.

In episode four, Wednesday attends the Rave ‘N ball school dance and delivers an epic dance scene in her most festive gothic attire.

The soundtrack: Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps.

The song, which was originally released by Ronnie Cook and The Gaylads in 1962, got its remake on The Cramps’ album “Psychedelic Jungle” in 1981.
