People are strange is indeed a very good one, especially as the poster said in the movie Lost Boys. The Gregorian chants from that is also quite creepy.

But The Hearse Song is certainly one of the most macabre songs I've ever heard, one I've known since I was a kid.

ODE TO BILLY JOE by Bobbie Gentry. Alway creeps me out.

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day I was out choppin' cotton, and my brother was balin' hay And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat And mama hollered out the back door, y'all, remember to wipe your feet And then she said, I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge Today, Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge And papa said to mama, as he passed around the blackeyed peas Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense; pass the biscuits, please There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow And mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge And brother said he recollected when he, and Tom, and Billie Joe Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night? I'll have another piece-a apple pie; you know, it don't seem right I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge And now ya tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge And mama said to me, child, what's happened to your appetite? I've been cookin' all morning, and you haven't touched a single bite That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge A year has come and gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe And brother married Becky Thompson; they bought a store in Tupelo There was a virus going 'round; papa caught it, and he died last spring And now mama doesn't seem to want to do much of anything And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Another vote here for Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man". I heard it for the first time in association with the movie Zodiac, so that is probably what initially made it so creepy for me, but even just listening to it now, trying not to think of that, there is still something unsettling about that song.

Context helps when songs scare you or not too. The first time I ever heard Joanna Newsom, my mate and I burst out laughing at her voice. But used in The Strangers, it was quite creepy.

I once heard a really creepy cover of "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child", but honestly it was probably primarily due to it being used on a really odd video. Similarly, out there somewhere is a really creepy version of "Gloomy Sunday" that I once heard as background to a video.

Some artists are able to use words to give a slightly unsettling feeling, even if the song is not scary at all. "Wuthering Heights" isn't scary, but the line: "I'm so cold, let me in your window" is creepy if you think about it.

I used to do acid in my youth and two songs creeped me out so much that I can barely listen to them to this day.

Here's the first one. The lyrics in this give me nightmares. To this very day the lyrics, "In the fields, the bodies burning As the war machine keeps turning," and "Day of judgement, God is calling ,On their knees, the war pigs crawling, Begging mercy for their sins, Satan laughing, spreads his wings," gives me the fucking chills.

One night it came on while I was at a friend's place and I made him skip the song. Maybe the song is so creepy because it's too damn close to the truth?? Plus, whatever is going on with the drums and the bass at the beginning are kind of scary.

One that has always creeped me out is Grand Funk Railroad's 'I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home.' It's always reminded me of ocean-bound horror, like the 1974 double murder of Mac & Muff Graham at Palmyra Island (cf. 'And the Sea Will Tell' by Bugliosi and Henderson), or the terror I felt at the end of 'Jaws' 1975, when the two survivors paddled home, clinging to a piece of wreckage. I wasn't ever secure in the knowledge that the shark was dead; it was the ocean, man. I dread the ocean.

[quote]like the 1974 double murder of Mac & Muff Graham at Palmyra Island (cf. 'And the Sea Will Tell' by Bugliosi and Henderson)

Snap, R137, I literally just wrote about this case on the Galapagos thread last night. Funny how when you hear about something in one place it comes up again and again.

[quote] Another vote here for Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man"

The best use of a Donovan song in soundtrack is still to watch DeNiro and Pesci kick the shit out somebody to the ethereal tones of Atlantis.

Timothy by The Buoys.

Just have to mention this oldie again. When I was only a 10 y.o. I knew what the lyrics meant.

The silicone chip inside her head, got switched to overload. And nobodies going to go to school today, she’s going to make them stay at home. And daddy doesn’t understand it, he always said she as good as gold. And he can see no reason, for there is no reason, what reason do you need to be told? Tell me why? I don’t like Mondays. Tell me why? I don’t like Mondays. Tell me why? I don’t like Mondays. I’m going shoot, the whole day down.

I like this now but it creeped me out as a kid.

Especially the spoken word part at the end, which always made me think of a satanic incantation from a 1970s horror movie.

The hidden ending of ‘Two Tabs of Mescal!ne’ by experimental posthardcore Glassjaw (from the stunning album WORSHIP & TRIBUTE) always freaks me out, because I forget it’s there waiting to pounce.

Like whenever I’m just vibing and enjoying the track, lettinf it play out, waiting for the next track on the record...suddenly there’s that spooky nightmare-inducing jumpscare scream & static. Every time it gets me again. I love Daryl Palumbo but honestly fuck him for that.

I love this one. It was playing constantly in my middle school cafeteria in 1968. Takes me right back to hear it all these years later.

Many cuts from A Perfect Circle but especially ‘Pet’, written from a gaslighting abusive and too-possessive Dominant POV.
