* "[[http://thewildernessdowntown.com/ The Wilderness Downtown]]", AKA the music video for "[[ArcadeFire We Used To Wait]]", might make you slightly worried about your house being under surveillance. This is because it shows you surveillance photos of your house. Seriously.

* The ironically titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiT4FmcaRtY "Nothing to Fear"]] by OingoBoingo: "Hey, baby, let me give you some advice / The [[RedScare Russians]] are gonna pulverize us in our sleep tonight." And if they don't get you, then [[TheWarOnTerror Arab terrorists]] will. And if ''they'' don't get you, a lonely old man in a brand-new car will give you candy or ice cream before getting you wired on cocaine and then [[PaedoHunt raping you]]. And if ''he'' doesn't get you, then one of countless other things - Christianity, television, etc. - will just sap your will and warp your mind. Now go to sleep...

* "Every Breath You Take" by ThePolice on the surface appears to be a sweet, soft rock song - until one listens to the lyrics closely. '''"[[StalkerWithACrush I'll be watching you...]]"'''

* {{Rammstein}}'s 'Stein um Stein' (which translates to 'stone by stone') starts off relatively unassuming, with the narrator informing someone he's going to build them a house... a house without windows or doors, where 'no light gets in'. Yep, he's going to wall them up and leave them to die. Sweet dreams.
* IronMaiden's "Fear of the Dark" is all about what could be hidden in the darkness...

Added DiffLines:

* Music/ViktorTsoi[='s=] "Sledi za Soboy" invokes this trope: it's a song about all the myriad ways [[DroppedABridgeOnHim death can suddenly strike]], and it encourages the listener to be ProperlyParanoid with the refrain of "Do watch yourself, be wary and cautious..."

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrdQwKlbu4Q Turn Around, Look at Me]] by The Vogues gives you this feeling. It was featured in FinalDestination3, played for this trope in particular.

** This is played with in the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', where it's [[TheGrimReaper Death]] standing in for Santa. Imagine the terror of a skeleton in a Santa suit asking, [[AC:Have you been naughty... or nice?]] Luckily, Death is a good guy, but the inherent creepiness of the above mentioned song is referenced directly. Of course, ''Hogfather'' isn't devoid of its own nightmarish moments.
*** [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas A skeleton in a Santa suit?]]

* "Thriller" by MichaelJackson. Just watch the ending of the music video with the close up on his demonic face, combined with his "this is not an occult video" message at the beginning.

* TomWaits' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaLjwSpZ6Cs "What's He Building In There?"]] defines this trope, musically; it's never made entirely clear whether the narrator of the song is just an over-paranoid and unstable person fixating on some innocent and harmless (if slightly reclusive and unconventional) neighbour, or whether the neighbour actually ''is'' up to something very sinister indeed...
