* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLAr-WlxMZY When the Music's Over]]". Morrison singing in a disturbingly outstretched song about the moment when "the music is over". The end is especially frightening when he shouts that ''music is your only friend... until the end'', whereupon the entire world seems to die along with him.

* The "Alabama Song" is a cheery song taken from Creator/BertoltBrecht and Music/KurtWeill's opera ''Theatre/TheRiseAndFallOfTheCityOfMahagonny''. At first it sounds like a [[DrunkenSong drinking song]]: ''Show me the way to the next whiskey bar/ Oh don't ask why/ Oh don't ask why!'', but then it gets disturbing: "If we don't find the next whiskey bar/ I tell you, we must die" and repeats that last line up to three times!
* "End of the Line". The echoed keyboard effect sounds akin to something you'd hear in a haunted house attraction at an amusement park - one that actually manages to be scary in a trippy sort of way.

* The bizarre, disturbing imagery of "Not To Touch The Earth", where Morrison even references the murder of UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy.
--> ''Dead president's corpse in the driver's car''.
* "The Unknown Soldier" where halfway through the song, a soldier is shot by a firing squad. The entire song calls up images of soldiers dying in battle, while ''"television children are fed"''. A thinly disguised jab at the VietnamWar, which was televised for generations to be scarred by the images.

* "L'America" maintains the same ominous four chord progression throughout the majority of the song. That it deals with European colonization of the Americas - and specifically their mistreatment of Native Americans - probably doesn't help matters.

* "L'America" maintains the same ominous four chord progression throughout the majority throughout. It sounds out of the song. That place on what is otherwise a very bluesy record, but not in a bad way; even so, it deals with European colonization of the Americas - and specifically their mistreatment of Native Americans - probably doesn't help matters.still has a rather dark tone.

* Even though it's relatively mild from a thematic standpoint, "You're Lost Little Girl" is still a very haunting track.

* The beginning of the title track. It sounds as if a car is driving along a desert highway, but with strange slide guitar licks thrown in for good measure.

** In concert performances, Morrison would stand at the mic during the firing squad sequence and collapse on-stage as if shot once the drummer makes his rimshot.

** To add to the eerie atmosphere, this was supposedly the last song The Doors recorded when Jim Morrison was still in the band.
