* Music/TheDoors' "Light My Fire" from ''[[Music/TheDoorsAlbum The Doors]]'' with Ray Manzarek's keyboard shrieking away for several minutes like some kind of infernal calliope. Robbie Krieger's "Oriental" flamenco guitar only makes the effect more eerie. Other examples from the Doors include "Strange Days", "You're Lost Little Girl", "Unhappy Girl", "People Are Strange", "Not To Touch The Earth", "The Unknown Soldier", "Spanish Caravan" (specifically the second half), "Five To One", and "L'America".

* "Psycho Circus" by {{KISS}} opens with some very creepy circus music playing.
* Bruce Springsteen has a little calliope figure at the beginning and end of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCVJny3Va4I Magic]]" and some faint hurdy-gurdy in the bridge... while Bruce wanders through a CrappyCarnival. [[WordOfGod According to the Boss]], people who think it's about the [[http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=9137 the Bush Administration]] are mostly correct.

* Website/YouTube composers Derek & Brandon Fiechter have a whole series of this type of music, and most of the songs are even labelled word-for-word as "Creepy Circus Music". Look [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9-TDHt7Tco&index=27&list=PLy_Q-5e78AnwCpp-M2T3aDzeYlnwF3W4r here]]. However, they also wrote a song called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JzDySYPxLc Circus Performers]]", a joyful song that completely averts this trope and is instead labelled as simply "Circus Music". It's still placed in their "Halloween Music" playlist, though, probably to keep it together with the ''creepy'' circus music.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': The hyena theme sounds like a carnival of horrors that goes berserk after some time, fitting for such a group of deranged and clownish characters.

* The ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Heebie Jeebies" makes liberal use of this due to the MonsterOfTheWeek being a troupe of Phantom [[MonsterClown Mimes]], and it livens the genre up with threatening and booming drumbeats during more intense moments.
