** Potentially made even scarier by reading the lyrics to "Helter Skelter". The album is infamous for being associated with UsefulNotes/CharlesManson. Ringo's scream of "I got blisters on mah fingers" at the end of "Helter Skelter" also has an unsettling, deranged quality.

Added DiffLines:

*** There is a part towards the middle where a frenzied moaning and heavy breathing fades in and out. To some, it sounds sexual, but to others it sounds like someone having a panic attack while being tortured. Given that John Lennon wanted this track to portray an actual revolution under way, it may have been intended to be the latter.

** [[WordOfGod It is said]] that John had this done intentionally during the final edit. [[RockBand The Beatles: Rock Band]] does a fine job putting a visual to the increasing volume and distortion before the cutoff.

** Many of these examples involve the name "Paul" usually in the context of a misheard lyric or line being played backwards. In 1969, a rumor circulated that band member PaulMcCartney had been killed in a car accident and replaced with a double, while the rest of the Beatles supposedly put clues in the album covers or the lyrics. Most people would agree that this was a complete invention of obsessed fans (or perhaps a publicity stunt by the band), but it has found new life in the internet age.

** 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.]]
