* {{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...

** Or, in the words of MST3k's Mike Nelson: "Santa's tendrils reach far and wide. There is no hiding from the CLAUS organization!"

* 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...

* "Subway Song" by TheCure. Especially if you are a woman and you have to walk anywhere by yourself at night. ''Turn around''.

**Electric Eye. You are being closely monitored and documented by a satellite. Always. You cannot see your surveyor watching or even know that it's watching but it's there, and if you do even one thing out of line it will not only see it but it will document it.

-->Have you ever been alone at night\\ Thought you heard footsteps behind\\ And turned around and no one's there?\\ And as you quicken up your pace\\ You find it hard to look again\\

** Another {{Tool}} song, Lost Keys, seems to fit perfectly with Faaip de Oiad. The instrumentals don't clash, and the lyrics of Lost Keys start just after Faaip de Oiad's cut off.

* {{Queensryche}}'s ''Gonna get close to you''. It's the 80's prog-metal version of ''Every Breath You Take'' -- only not nearly so subtle.

* The track "Faaip di Oiad" on the {{Tool}} album ''Lateralus''. It sounds like a desperate, last-ditch final broadcast by someone who has discovered a number of terrifying things: Aliens are here. They've been here for a while. They've infiltrated many areas of the government and military. They have plans for this planet. And they're coming to get me because I know the truth.
