Well you can put these things on an album allright, but as a standalone poll entry they're not terribly convincing. Spooky Boogie tightly.

Acquiring The Taste

Spooky Boogie always reminded me of "Inspector Gadget" meets "The Monster Mash".
when i was a kid a doller was worth ten dollers - now a doller couldnt even buy you fifty cents

You know, I never thought I'd say this but: Spooky Boogie

Why? Because the first one doesn't really work as a standalone song, so it really isn't a "instrumental" as much as an interlewd.

The first one. The second one is really annoying. I couldn't wait for it to be over. Some day I'm going to cut the face out of that album and use it for Halloween. Maybe this year.

Acquiring the Taste by a long, long distance. Spooky Boogie is fit for a contemporary cartoon. I never knew that 2:53 could be so long.
When I have proved that I'm not a robot, access may be denied.

Spooky Boogie is the only thing worth listening to on GFAD

Spooky Boogie is one of GG's worst songs, so ATT wins by default.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Two GG instrumentals where I hit the "skip" button....but if "Boys in The Band" was put up then that would be it.

Acquiring the Taste because it makes me think I'm listening to or reading a fairy tale, where a (gentle?) giant or other creature is hiding or lurking but is about to pop up. Very effective.

I cannot vote though...LOL
