I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE!!

The song is called "Fire" and it's by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown from their self-titled album. Great song!

First time I heard Black Sabbath "I_amm_Ironnn_Mannnn" we were driving around late night out in the canyons in so. calif, pretty stoned. That was pretty freaky.

Also, Jim Morrison on An American Prayer, does The Hitchhiker to Riders on the Storm, talking about being out in the desert and killing someone, with the rain and thunder playing in the background, creepy. That and the whole "Legs furiously pumping" intro. I can't even listen to that anymore.

"Singing in the Rain" has been a little creepy ever since "A Clockwork Orange"

TZ, that made me laugh,,,,WAKE UP!!!!!!!

Try listening to When the Music's Over in complete darkness and with headphones on...muuuwahahahahaaa

Gotta be honest... a lot of stuff on this thread that is neither creepy nor eerie.

Major Props to TZ Me.

Thank you for saying what I was thinking.

I don't care what anyone says. "Don't Fear The Reaper" is one scarey, and creepy song.

Sad that a person can't be honest and post some songs that actually fit the description. There are a lot of dark songs that are truly excellent and they get no acknowledgement from top 40 folks like you who give credit to mainstream nonsense that isn't eerie at all.

It isn't in any way an attempt to be the big man, though your comment clearly was an attempt for you to be the big man. It was a serious comment to acknowledge some really great, really dark songs that will never be mentioned otherwise on a thread built for exactly that type of song. Sorry you couldn't see it for what it was, tough guy.

Just generally creepy:

Alice Cooper's "I Love The Dead":
I love the dead before they're cold
Their blueing flesh for me to hold
Cadaver eyes upon me see
Nothing

Bloodrock's "D.O.A."

The spoken intro to the U.K. version of Chris Rea's "The Road To Hell", teamed
with the evil slide guitar. Listen to that on a dark highway at midnight. I thought
someone was in the back seat of my car.

Stood still on a high way, I saw a woman by the side of the road
With a face that I knew like my own reflected in the window
Well she walked up to my quarterlite and she bent down real slow
A fearful pressure paralyzed me in my shadow
She said "Son, what are you doing here
My fear for you has turned me in my grave"
I said "Mama, I've come to the valley of the rich, myself to sell"
She said "Son, this is the road to hell"
"On your journey 'cross the wilderness from the desert to the well
You have strayed on the motorway to hell"

What song is more disturbing than "The End" Jim Morrison (The Doors)

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 8, 2008 8:27:00 AM PDT
M. J. Gawlik says:
Cheryl, you hit it. "The End" is not scary or spooky. Disturbing is an apt
discription.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 8, 2008 8:27:13 AM PDT
I actually find the Doors' "The End" to be so over the top, that I find it campy.
However it was used to great effect in "Apocalypse Now".

The images conjured up by the Velvets' "Sister Ray" are kinda creepy though.

Snappy says:
I think that Deftones song, titled something like "House of Flies" is creepy because of the rusty, creeky metal door sound in the background. It's the sound you hear in an abandoned house where you thought you were alone.

I'm a metal fan, but like someone else said...you start listing metal songs and you could go all day.

Snappy, if you like that effect then check out "Dust" by Fields of the Nephilim.

I will. Thanks! I haven't heard from those guys in awhile. I remember they had a Sisters of Mercy/Bauhaus sound.

"Tubular Bells," which is that song that pops up on the movie "The Exorcist," and ESPECIALLY toward the end of the movie when Fr. Marin (Max von Sydow) shows up to help young Fr. Damien Karos start the exorcism. I don't think there has ever been a better matching of music-to-movie scene than that.

Someone mentioned "Dead mans Dream" by Procol Harum. I have to agree. Very scary and unsettling. Others you might try are:

Music for Theremin(Spellbound theme)---Kevin Sinnott
Tales from Heaven and Hell---Wendy Carlos
The Gates of Paradise--Robert Fripp
The Cave---William Holden

One of the spookiest, most atmospheric songs I've ever heard is "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Dr. John The Night Tripper. Try listening to it in the dark, light a single candle and some incense, then see if it doesn't conjure up images of an eerie Voodoo ceremony!

I remember getting freaked out, when I was a kid, by the kid's voices in "God of Thunder". I later read it was the producer, Bob Ezrin's kids.

He'd used them even more effectively in the song "The Kids" on Lou Reed's Berlin. Now that's a disturbing song, especially with the urban legend that goes with it.

Just to let you know, let's include the title track off Black Sabbath's self-titled
album. First time I saw them in concert, they had stage enveloped in fog with
a red light bathed on a cross!!! Really freaked me out (then), but listening to
the studio cut, I think really more creepy, eerier, and freakier. Thanks for telling
me.

"Bass Song" by Hayden. It's mellow but very creepy. The first time I heard it I thought the piano was cool, but then I listened to the lyrics and felt a chill.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2008 12:08:55 PM PDT
Thanks for the good laugh, Hankzappa. As for all the Doors entries, I must say that I agree. The irony behind "The End" is that it was released in 1967, the year that brought us the "Summer of Love." It's the same year that gave us other memorable hits such as "All You Need is Love" (The Beatles), "Happy Together" (The Turtles), "Reach Out of the Darkness" (Friend and Lover), "Love is All Around" (The Troggs) and "Get Together" (The Youngbloods).

In the spring of 1991 I was a senior in high school. That year I read John Densmore's autobiography, "Riders on the Storm." One quote which has stuck with me all these years later pertains to the "Summer of Love" and all the happenings in San Francisco. Densmore related how he would have loved to be tripping with the hippies in San Francisco, but he was "stuck in the demon Doors."

It's not really a song, but part of a movie soundtrack:

The weird, buzzing music-noise you hear whenever you see Heath Ledger's Joker on-screen in "The Dark Knight." That is the creepiest sound I've ever heard. Go see the movie and let me know if that isn't the spookiest noise known to the human ear ...

Looking forward to the Dark Knight...

But honestly, the band Ween has a little ditty called "Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down)" that actually has a humorous edge to it...it gives me the real creeps every time I hear the little girl's voice behind the chorus...my tummy is rumbling right now.
BUT for the real freaks out there, I think we can all agree that Pink Floyd's "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" ...at the end with that piercing scream is and always will be a pretty scary moment, eh?
