Helter Skelter and Revolution #9
"Boom, Boom" by John Lee Hooker. I used to listen to my little transistor radio and late one night that came on. Scared the crap out of me. I thought he was really going to kill her.
I was in 5th or 6th grade when I heard that song and it creeped me out big time! I don't even want to listen to it now as part of this thread. I always thought it was a car crash though, like an anti-DUI type message. Doesn't matter, I'm not listening again!
The whole "Paul is dead" thing used to give me nightmares too.
Another one. It didn't scare me, but was one that always stuck in my head and was kind of haunting when it would come on the radio "The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot . As a kid, I was convinced it was about a pirate shipwreck.
Chris Rea, Road to Hell part 1. I was 5 years old.
And in War of the Worlds, when the capsule lid screws opens
Alice Cooper, Dead Babies
that evil tri tone
the devils interval
I played it when my daughter was little and she would yell at me to play something else
Scared? Not sure about that, but when I was a kid the video and song "Twilight Zone" by Golden Earring always made me nervous. Being 8 or 9 hearing "when the bullet hits the bone" was creepy.
Yep, it's such a downbeat "lullabye" to begin with, and every time it ends on that spot, I have to sigh. Total downer, innocence lost.
When I was about 6 "Wheels" was popular on the radio. For some reason that song gave me the creeps. I've never had such a deep reaction to music ever again. I've had music bring a tear to my eye but never anything as visceral as "Wheels".
Even now I can still remember the feeling when I hear the tune.
The end of Black Diamond on the first KISS record -- it's starts slowing way down and then there is a drum beat that comes in.
The Moody Blues - "Departures" (intro bit to "Ride My SeeSaw")
My dad used to blast this when I was about 4 or 5. Hated it.
I became violently ill while listening to this song as a child, and was subsequently terrified of hearing it. As an adult I have no rational explanation for this.
I own that one...had it as a kid. Creeped me out as a youth and I still get a kick out of firing it up every October 31. Cheers.
“Here Comes Santa Claus” - it sounded like a threat.
