    Terry Jacks did that one.

    I don't remember any songs themselves scaring me as a kid, although when the Thriller video came out I remember being horrified when Michael Jackson turned into a werewolf. The rest of the vid I loved.

    I'm not a kid any more, but the beginning of Crass's 'Mother Earth' gives me the creeps, especially since the song is about Myra Hindley.

    Totally terrified me...
    in fact, it made me nauseous...I felt like I was gonna hurl!
    It's that kind of stamping sound that runs through out the song...like the zombies are comin' for me.
    And of course the singers voice.And the way the music veered off into a freaky whine..

    That song rocked! I remember being about 7 years old, and totally convinced
    that I would be cannibilized in the darkness of my bedroom when I would go to sleep at night.

    Slim Whitman-Indian Love call God that yodeling is a fate worse than death!!!
    My best friend in High School had a nightmare that he was trapped in a van after it fell off a cliff, and the tape deck kept playing "Mule Skinner Blues" by Dolly Parton over and over. He was REALLY bothered by it. Of course we got ahold of a copy...

    I can't listen to a lot of songs, either because they are scary, or send me spiraling into a deep depression. Wildfire, Goodbye Blue Sky, Nights in White Satin, Last Kiss, Teddy Bear, Roses for Mama, Mama Liked the Roses, etc.

    Yeah, if it has a person dying in the song, I probably can't listen. Except for "People Who Have Died". Interestingly, "Gone Away" by the Offspring is my ringtone.

    Old country song-The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia. For some reason that freaked me out. Still makes me feel creepy just thinking about it now.

    There is another old '70 song, some thing about-"that's the night Chicago died......" old pop-like 70ish song. I can only hear that partial line in my head.

    Just drives me bat shit.

    I vaguely remember a song by Led Zepplin, that had, what sounded like a swarm of bees attacking in the beginning of it, it scared the heck out of me!

    I don't remember the name of it, but it was a folk ballad popular back in the late 50s/early 60s about a littler girl named Cindy who fell in a well and could not be rescued. I was about 4, I guess, and I would listen to it on the radio, scared me to death and I still am terrified of falling into a well or a hole.

    The Peter & the Wolf with David Bowie is a must have. Love it.

    The video for Badfinger's 'Come and Get It' creeps me out. I don't know why. Maybe it's because a couple of them killed themselves. I also saw a Charles Manson docu where the girls were loading guns and sang the chorus.

    None for me personally, though I seem to be able to regress into past lives just by hearing certain songs, which in turn freaks out some of my friends.

    I had 2 that would scare me. One was, I think it's an old Irish Folk Song. It's called "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean". I used to think it was called "My BODY Lies Over The Ocean"! I thought it was a song about a ghost looking for his body. Especially the line "Bring back, bring back, bring back my body (Bonnie) to me"!
    The other one is called "Laurie". I can't remember who sang it, but it was a song popular in the late 60's. It was all about a guy who met a girl at a dance, and when he walked her home, he lent her his sweater,because she said she was very cold. He left her at her door, walked away, then remembered he needed to get his sweater back. When Laurie's father answered the door, he told him who he was and that he wanted to get his sweater back. The father then said that Laurie died a year ago, coming home from a dance all alone. Then, the father tells the guy where Laurie's grave is. The guy then goes to Laurie's grave and finds his sweater lying on top of her grave!
    Man, did the story in that song give me the creeps!
    BTW, here's a clip of the song:

    Okay, I just found out Dickie Lee did "Laurie". Same guy who did "Patches". He was a singing Death Hag, I guess?

    Anything by Mariah Carey. And I hate Tubular Bells. Songs don't scare me so much, but some singers sure do!

    just for that, I love you even though I don't know who you are. Laurie is amazingly haunting. Patches isn't that bad either but Laurie . . . even with the context of the song written out here, it sent shivers down my spine. No wonder you were scared as a kid, would have sent me running.

    The one and only Twilight Zone theme song. I remember one particular night when I was in bed. My mom was in the other room watching a rerun of the Twilight Zone. Just lying there, hearing that music in the dark..... The only thing I could see was the shadows of the trees on my curtains on a dark and windy night.......creepy.

    I also had a friend who freaked at the Unsolved Mysteries theme song...

    The song that used to scare me was Ghost Riders in the Sky. It just used to freak me the hell out every time I heard it.

    thank you for bringing that back. I mean it, I was singing the melody all this time and couldn't remember where I knew it from. I'm just glad I never really listened to it as a kid, that would have sent me right over the edge.

    Nights In White Satin. The song itself didn't creep me out, it's the little voice thingy at the end that still, to this day, gives me the creeps.

    The Twilight Theme Freaked me out too. Very spooky. The shows were always the oddest stories but scary for a Child. As an Adult the song was the Theme from Jaws. It was so realistic with the Dundun Dundun Dundu.....Reslly, you thought that shark was headed down the Hallway to your bedroom. As an adult I think that was the only movie that actually gave me nightmares for a few days.

I like it but it used to completely scare me out of my mind and they ALWAYS played it late at night. Bad vibes for a ten or eleven year old!

    Rockwell and Michael Jackson's "Somebody's Watching Me"..now I get a kick out of it. The theme from Halloween (the original) still gives me the shivers.

    When I was a child and living in California there was a song about a big earthquake and California falling off into the ocean. That scared the heck out of me. I think drowning would be a terrible way to die and I used to lie awake at night hoping we didn't have an earthquake while I was sleeping. Does anybody remember that song?

    Mama Cass did a song called "California Earthquake," early 70s:

    I heard they exploded the underground blast
    They say its gonna happen - gonna happen at last
    That's the way it appears
    They tell me the faultline runs right through here

    So that maybe that may be
    What's gonna happens gonna happen to me
    They tell me the faultline runs right through here

    Atlantis will rise, Sunset Boulevard will fall
    Where the beach used to be won't be nothing at all
    That's the way it appears
    They tell me the faultline runs right through here

    So that maybe that may be
    What's gonna happen's gonna happen to me
    They tell me the faultline runs right through here

    mmmmm, I don't know if that's the one. I seem to remember it being a man singing it and it was a bit of a folk song. It was really popular though and they played it all the time. And probably more in the mid to late 60's.

    I loved Mamma Cass. (Scott shows the house she used to live in on his Helter Skelter tour.)

    The song "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler has been haunting me since the 2nd grade...it pretty much plays over and over in my head whenever I breakup with a girl... Kinda like today.

    Honey by Bobby Goldsboro.

    I remember my mum humming this when I was a kid and she told me the story behind the song --- about some guy losing his wife. It didn't only make me feel sad but freaked me out (And still does! Worse than watching the Exorcist/Omen movies put together). My first realization of death...via a lullaby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ooh, that's my favorite part of the song. It's called "Late Lament":

    "Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
    Watch lights fade from every room
    Bedsitter people look back and lament
    Another day's useless energy spent

    Impassioned lovers wrestle as one
    Lonely man cries for love, and has none
    New mother picks up and suckles her son
    Senior citizens wish they were young

    Cold hearted orb that rules the night
    Removes the colors from our sight
    Red is gray, and yellow, white
    But we decide which is right,
    And which is an illusion"

    Ooh, you're right, it is creepy!
