Music that creeps you the hell out:

So, yeah. I guess, this is where people post music that they find creepy/scary. Personally, several songs from the Neon Genesis Evangelion soundtrack freak me out, but I have a special place in my nightmares for "Introjection." I'll post it later, because I'm going to bed soon and I don't want to hear it right now.
Watch A Serbian Film. I dare you.

Especially that indeterminate sound at the end. Brr!

The Swamp Dogg song "The World Beyond" creeps the living daylights out of me, and makes me very, very relieved that the Cold War never actually turned into a nuclear conflict. I always cry at the line '...and what was a rock and roll band?'

These are the scary, scary lyrics:

CHORUS:
I dreamed that I was living in the world beyond
And I was born after they’d dropped the bomb
I dreamed that I was sitting on my father’s knee
And he told me of the world that used to be

‘Tell me again how it used to be
Did grass really grow, and what was a tree?
Did rain really fall from the sky?
What a shame that it all had to die.

Tell me about the automobile
How did it run, and what was a wheel?
Did children stand up all alone?
I think that you’re puttin’ me on.’

[CHORUS]

‘Tell me again how it used to be
Did birds really fly? What was TV?
Did concrete cover the land,
And what was a rock and roll band?

Tell me again what kids used to do
What was a dog, and what was a shoe?
Did children look different from me?
That must have been something to see.’

[CHORUS]

‘Tell me again about sunshine and rain
What was a boat, and what was a train?
Were people as lonely as me,
And did they live in caves such as we?’

That's the way you do it: pony for nothing, and your mares for free.

Just another brick in the Wall of Text.

Natural Snow Buildings go into this territory a lot. But you won't find the good ones on YT, unfortunately. >:

For now though, have some...

Really, the whole Pictures album, but in particular this track:

Beautiful, yet harrowing.

I think this should fit in just nicely...

The Cure's Pornography album is overall loaded with High Octane Nightmare Fuel but the title track always creeps me out, with the reversed voices and the shouting

I love The Black Vase.
The Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anime soundtrack has A LOT of terrifying stuff, but for me this takes the cake due to being played in one of the most impossibly scary scenes in the whole thing.

I first heard this song in concert when I was 9 and it creeped me out.
Seeing all these piss ant tropers trying to talk tough makes me laugh. If Matrix were here, he'd laugh too.

"Spin Spin Sugar" by The Sneaker Pimps is the best example of Hell Is That Noise I've heard in music. "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict", "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" and "One of These Days", all by Pink Floyd, are also quite creepy.

Generally speaking, creepy lyrics don't frighten me the same way they do other people, so I listed songs with sound effects that freaked me out the first time I heard them instead.
Jesus saves. Gretzky steals, he scores!
Can-I-Bus
"Maxwells silver hammer" the Beatles.

This song didn't always scare me. Then I became a Doctor Who fan, and it reminded me of...well, see the title.

Until very recently, Bohemian Rhapsody creeped me out. Specifically the most famous part. I finally got over it by putting the thing on my MP3 player.

A few years ago, I turned on the radio and was treated to...something by Pink Floyd. I have never gone near one of their albums since.

[up][up] I was going to say something sarcastic about it being "The Gnome", but then I remembered the fact that I actually do find the whispering during the bridge of that song to be kind of creepy ("look at the sky, look at the river, isn't it good?")

Was it "Welcome to the Machine"? That and "Sheep" are the only PF songs that creep me out.

no one will notice that I changed this
