** One of the creepier aspects of the aforementioned "Inner Groove" is that at least in original vinyl version, it was a loop in the ''literal'' sense of the word - it would play endlessly until you turn off your record player. Considering the fact that it was one of the first records to do such trick, it was pretty much enough to make you believe that your player is haunted.

* The entire album in general can be seen as this. It's a strangely random record, which, like their self-titled double album released two years later, never sticks to a constant theme, going from a dark opening rocker to a sad ballad with cellos, an eerie psychedelic song about extreme tiredness to a sitar-heavy raga song, a pleasant love ballad to an oddball kiddie song, an edgy hard rock song with a high-pitched sound to a deliberately cheesy piano pop track about the summer, a somewhat unfinished rocker with cryptic lyrics to another sad ballad, another rocker to a dissonant pop rock track with surreal vocals, and then finally two of the least family-friendly Beatles songs - a loud jazz fusion number about an addiction to marijuana and the finale, a demonic experimental piece designed to terrify anyone not already disturbed by the eclecticism.

* Those "electronic seagulls" on "Tomorrow Never Knows". It's a '''''heavily''''' distorted clip of Paul laughing.
** It's not just the "seagulls" that are terrifying: the distorted quality of John's vocals, occurrences of percussive sound-effects played backwards, and the sound of tape being [[BrokenRecord looped rapidly through a tape-recorder]] ,in addition to this song's [[UncannyValley freakishness.]]

*** And if the original song didn't creep you out, Music/JadFair and Music/DanielJohnston's cover should do it. Not only is the general tone off-key and creepy, but a monologue interpolated halfway through presents the [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpretation]] that [[spoiler:[[TheCoverChangesTheMeaning the entire song is an effort to get you, the listener, to "surrender to the void" so that you'll be possessed by demons]].]]

** John gleefully anticipates the judge's murder in an odd, sadistic way.
