Box Office Beats is going to be taking some time off and then going thru some changes.

First, let us say how much fun BOB has been over the last year. It was a show born from a mutual love of movies and music, and grew from that passion into it’s own beast. BOB took over. And working on anything BOB related was always a good time. Mandy always said working on BOB stuff made her heart happy. But things are constantly evolving. Life changes and people’s situations change. And sometimes there just isn’t room for a big green furry popcorn monster.

So the show will likely be closing it’s curtain. Between Fear being busy with his life, and Mandy being busy with hers, it’s just not something that will be able to be continued in the current form.

But BOB isn’t fully going away. There will be some restructuring behind the scenes, and BOB will reopen the curtain soon with a new path.

And all the episodes will remain up and available for anyone who still wants to listen. And we hope you all stick around to see what the future for BOB holds.


Here are our final 5 Halloween Movie Songs!

Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

Day-o (Banana Boat Song)

Beetlejuice is a fantastic movie. And has such fun spooky vibe.

I Put A Spell On You

Hocus Pocus is such a big par of pop culture lately. It’s had a big resurgence.

Halloween Theme

How can you not include the classic Halloween movie theme on a list of Halloween songs?

Time Warp

I watch Rocky Horror every year around Halloween. It’s astounding!

This Is Halloween



Have a SPOOKY Halloween!

Part 4 of our Halloween Movie Songs.

Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

People Are Strange

Another great cover of a classic rock song, used in an iconic horror movie. This time in The Lost Boys.

For Whom The Bell Tolls

Another iconic opening song for a horror movie, used in Zombieland.

Season Of The Witch

Paranorman was an animated movie I really liked, and I am not usually a fan of them.

The Addams Family

Who doesn’t love the Addams Family?


Busting makes me feel good!


There are more spooky songs coming soon!

OOOOOOO It’s time for more Halloween movie songs! Part 3.

Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

Hip To Be Square

Again, another great use of a song that doesn’t fit the scene, but still adds a lasting effect to it. Used in American Psycho. So not how you would expect it.

Red Right Hand

Scream is still one of my fave horror movies and it’s got a great soundtrack.

Pet Sematary

I love when songs are written for a movie. This is a great one from The Ramones for the classic Stephen King movie Pet Sematary.

He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)

Gotta love an Alice Cooper song about Jason Voorhees.

Dream Warriors

I’m a Freddy girl at heart, so of course I had to include a song from one of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies.


There are more spooky songs coming soon!

We’re back for our second list of Halloween movie songs.

Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

Sympathy For The Devil

Another great song, and this time it’s a cover of it. Made even more iconic by it’s use in a horror movie, this time being Interview With The Vampire.


Freebird is one of my fave songs. And it’s use in The Devil’s Rejects was a fitting in a great scene.

Sweet Dreams

I love cover songs, and this cover of Sweet Dreams is perfect. And it’s use in House on Haunted Hill was just as perfect.

Tiptoe Thru The Tulips

I am a big fan of using a seemingly happy or upbeat song in a creepy way. Insidious does that with the scene with Tiptoe Thru The Tulips.

The Man Comes Around

I love a good movie opening with an iconic song, and the 2004 Dawn Of The Dead had that with some Johnny Cash.


There are more spooky songs coming soon!

It’s time to get spooky! We’re doing a list of Halloween Movie songs each week this month leading up to Halloween. Here is our first list of 5.

Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

Monster Mash

Kicking it off with a Halloween classic. Monster Mash has been in a lot of movies, so we had to include it of course.

Heads Will Roll

Love this song. And it was used in the Goosebumps movie, so it’s fitting for our Halloween list.

ET Theme

I love when movies have a great score and especially a theme. ET was a fantastic movie and is still full of nostalgia, and of course has a great theme.

Land Of A Million Drums

Scooby Doo is a great movie for Halloween because they are always hunting monsters. And this is a fun song.

Time Is On My Side

This song was a main plot point of the movie Fallen, which is a great underrated movie about a demon possessing people.


There are more spooky songs coming soon!

It’s back to school time! So here are my Top 5 picks for songs from school movies. Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

Gangsta’s Paradise – Dangerous Minds

Oh Coolio. He made such a catchy song, that even if you haven’t seen the movie, you know the song. The movie was a gritty drama about teaching at risk youth, and it was really good.

Kiss Me – She’s All That

90s teen movies are so great. And She’s All That is full of teen romance drama cliches, but still a great movie.

Tainted Love – Not Another Teen Movie

I love cover songs. And parodies. And Not Another Teen Movie is a hilarious parody of teen movies, from the 80s to the 2000s. And the version of Tainted Love by Marilyn Manson in the movie is extra great.

Baba O’Riley – Slackers

Slackers is a fave movie of mine. It’s go classic lines and great humour. And the opening with Baba O’Riley playing sets the tone of the whole movie.

You’re The One That I Want – Grease

Can’t talk music from school related movies without including Grease. It’s a classic and has so many great songs, but I chose to go with the closing tune because I wanted to.


There are lots of songs from school related movies, so if you think I missed a good one, hit us up.

Today is BOB’s birthday! While the podcast may not have been launched until October, today is the anniversary of when the concept of Box Office Beats was born. Mandy and FEAR had planned on doing just an episode of their own shows, but the idea was too big, and was decided to be it’s own podcast.


And while they may have gotten busy with life, BOB is still near and dear to them and still going. There will always be a BOB in some form.


So thanks for being along for the adventure and stick around as it continues to grow.



Sometimes BOB likes to change things up and decides to let us do a blog post. Well, it’s usually Mandy doing them. Now, I am not always a fan of musicals, especially tv shows that decide to do a “special”musical episode. But there are some movie musicals I actually dig. So here are my Top 5 picks for songs from musicals! Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife 

Rent – La Vie Boheme

Now most people would choose Seasons of Love from Rent. But me, I really like La Vie Boheme and think it captures the spirit of the movie. Honestly though, I like almost all the songs in it.

Rocky Horror Picture Show – Time Warp

I love horror movies. And I love fun songs. So of course I love Rocky Horror. And Time Warp is a classic.

Phantom Of The Opera – Theme Song

Although Phantom is a stage musical mainly (so are most of these), there have been a few movie versions. And I always loved it. I had the cassette tapes (old school) and listened to them a lot as a kid. And I still love it.

Annie – Hard Knock Life

As a kid of the 80s, I grew up watching the 80s movie version of Annie. And I still love it.

Newsies – King Of New York

I was obsessed with Newsies as a kid. I wore out my VHS tape on this song. And I still know all the words.


So while these may not be the main stream picks for musical songs, these are 5 I really enjoy.

On this show we play another guessing game. This time it’s Mandy giving clues to Fear to guess her songs and theme. Play along and see how you do.

Be sure to hit us up on Twitter and Instagram @bobeatspod and let us know if you have any suggestions for songs or even a topic for an upcoming show.
