Pretty much anything by The Swans or Jarboe. Its the kind of music that gets under your skin and just doesn't leave.
The Mercy Seat - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Its a powerful song that again gets under your skin.

"Beth" by KISS, played backwards. You can hear Neil Bogart muttering something about recruiting children for Kidz In Satan's Service!

Anytime a topic like this appears, I immediately think of "Acid Annapolis" on Leon Russel's Carney album. I used to listen to this song through my headphones and scare myself stupid.

Fall of 1969, when the "Paul is Dead" rumor came out . . . I was in 6th grade and my best friend and I "borrowed" his older sister's White Album and played Revolution #9 backwards like the rumors said to do. Scared the ever living s*** out of two 11-year-olds!

Sweet N Lowe says:
Paper Cuts by Nirvana has a creepy sounding guitar. And the chorus when he screams like that is kinda freaky. And this is before Nevermind, so it actually is grunge and not pop-grunge.

Nope. It is "Careful With That Axe Eugene" by Pink Floyd. The thing builds and screaches until you hear the loud whisper "Careful With That Axe Eugene" followed by a scream that will make your back hairs stand up.

The Doors - the soft parade and the end

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 7, 2008 12:26:45 AM PST
Al--Ya think? I juist think soft parade is weird but not scary. But "The End" and "When the Music's Over" are pretty dark and threatening.

The Dead Man's Dream, by Procol Harum. A very creepy and frightening song about a guy on his death bed, having a dream where a stranger leads him through an abandoned town and then into a graveyard. Very eerie, spooky song, both musically and lyrically.

The end of 'Killer' by Alice Cooper is frightening as well. I thought 'Not To Touch The Earth' by The Doors was scary the first few times I heard it.

"Don't Fear the Reaper" -Blue Oyster Cult (Thanks Disco!)

About 2 years ago, I kept hearing it over and over again, to the point I was sooo creeped out. Prior to this, I rarely ever heard the song.

I was thinking, maybe I'm getting some sort of message. Thank goodness though, nothing happened. I was genuinely scared.

Did you mean "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult?

Check out the original version of "Halloween". It's used to great effect in the classic flick.

"Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" - great eerily, scary halloween tune.

"Stigmata Martyr" by Bauhaus

The double-tracked Latin at the end always freaked me out when I was young.

The Collected Musical Works of Bruce Willis: It scares how much cocaine the Motown execs were on when this patronizing garbage was released.

Yes, Disco-you are right. I'll correct it

BTW- The original Halloween is one of my all-time favorite movies. I have great memories watching it over and over and over again with my sisters when I was a kid.

The poem "Horse Latitudes" by Jim Morrison is totally wigged out.

When the still sea conspires an armor
And her sullen and aborted
Currents breed tiny monsters
True sailing is dead
Awkward instant
And the first animal is jettisoned
Legs furiously pumping
Their stiff green gallop
And heads bob up
Poise
Delicate
Pause
Consent
In mute nostril agony
Carefully refined
And sealed over

Doesn't get any freakier than that, friends.

DB-
Wouldn't that consist of some lame wine cooler ads? Yeah, Willis always thought he was the 'heppest cat' in the room. What a maroon.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 7, 2008 8:29:17 AM PST
Maroon? LOL. Havent heard that term since the ole Bugs Bunny toons! Nice.

I would also add "The Curse of Milhaven" by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. It's about mass murder in a small town, narrated by a young girl named Lottie who is not what she seems. It's the only song I can think of with a surprise twist ending--take that M. Night Shaymalan!

St. Rasputin says:
"Stigmata Martyr" is (in VH1 terms) awesomely creepy! It was used to great effect in the 80s horror flick "Night of the Demons."

St. Rasputin says:
J. Simon, what about the twist at the end of Nick Cave's "Song of Joy"?

Stevo says:
J.Simon; Everything off of Nick Cave's Murder Ballads is dark and creepy but strangely beautiful-Stagger Lee is the sickest song I've ever heard-other disturbing tunes I like are Where the Wild Roses Grow(duet with Kyle Minogue) and Song of Joy- Nick's Voice is perfect for expressing the "Horror".All God's children they all gotta die!

I'm Gonna sand this CD.

St. Rasputin: I forgot about Song of Joy. Curse you Cave! And thanks for reminding me about Night of the Demons. I'm checking prices for a used DVD now.

Stevo: I would agree about Murder Ballads. I'd also signal out the PJ Harvey duet Henry Lee. Murderous women are especially frightening. On the subject of PJ Harvey, her song "Rid of Me" creeped me out the in the mid-90s. But I was a young guy who was not especially honest with the women I dated. I worried about one of them twisting my head off, see.

I gotta back Hoagie Mike on Alice Cooper's "Years Ago" - easily the creepiest, most unsettling song I've ever heard.

I also nominate Marilyn Manson's "Prelude (The Family Trip)" off "Portrait of an American Family" - it's basically a recitation of the boat ride scene from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and it sounds like music made by madmen.
