"There's a creak beneath the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rocking in the chair
But nobody sitting there
There's a ghostly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coughin' and a yawnin'
Where restless soul's spoke

I'm gonna be
Exactly what you gonna see
So did you come to me
To see your fantasies
Performed before your very eyes

A haunting ghostly treat
The foolish trickery
And spirits dancing
In the light

But if you came to see
The truth the purity
It's here inside
A lonely heart

So let the performance start..."

"...There's a ghost down in the hall
There's a ghoul upon the bed
There's something in the walls
There's blood up on the stairs
And it's floating through the room
And there's nothing I can see
And I know that that's the truth
Because now it's onto me
I don't understand it
Hey
I don't understand it!
Aaow
There's a tappin' in the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rocking in the chair
But there's no-one sitting there
There's a ghostly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coughin' and a yawnin'
Where a restless soul is going..."

GHOSTS 
JAPAN LIMITED EDITION BOXSET
EPIC/SONY ESVU 155-157

We all know this "Ghosts" boxset. It was released in november 1997, and it contains a "Blood on the dancefloor", a "Ghosts" short movie VHS, a little replica of the "Ghosts" program given to Cannes festival fro the premiere of the short movie and...a great gift:a "minimax" cd -single including an unreleased song, "On the line", backed with 2 unreleased remixes of "Is it scary" and "Ghosts".
The japanese release, much more rarer than the european one, it has a sticker with japanese infos on the front plastic envelope of the box; the content is very similar to the european release, even though the "minimax" cd single has a golden shade instead of the yellow/orange used for the Europe version. Also, the "Blood" cd is, of course, made in Japan, and the vhs is NTSC system, not PAL.

SOMEBODY'S WATCHING ME
MEXICO 12'' RED VINYL SINGLE
MOTOWN TM-27


"...Who's watching?
Tell me who's watching.
Who's watching me?
I'm just an average man, with an average life.
I work from nine to five; hey hell, I pay the price.
All I want is to be left alone in my average home;
But why do I always feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone, and
I always feel like somebody's watching me.
And I have no privacy.
Woh, I always feel like somebody's watching me.
Tell me is it just a dream?
When I come home at night.
I bolt the door real tight.
People call me on the phone I'm trying to avoid.
Well, can the people on T.V. see me.
Or am I just paranoid?...."
"WE'LL PLAY A GAME.  ANYBODY HERE LIKES GAMES? HELLO??? 
GAME TIME!!!"

MAKING MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER
HOLLAND BETA VIDEO 
VESTRON MB51000

"...They're out to get you 
there's demons closing in on
Every side
They will possess you 

unless you change the number on
Your dial
Now is the time for you 

and I to cuddle close together
All through the night 

I'll save you from the terrors on
The screen
I'll make you see


That it's a thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost
Would ever dare try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller
Chiller
Thriller here tonight..."

HISTORY/GHOSTS
AUSTRALIA CASSETTE SINGLE

Certainly, this is one of the rarest cassingles released in Australia. It's the second (and last) single taken from the album "Blood on the dancefloor", and it's a double single:"History/Ghosts". 
The aussie version of this cassette comes is housed in a picture cardsleeve, and it has 7 songs (just like the aussie cd single and the japanese one).

IS IT SCARY FOR YOU?
