Are there any songs that completely creep you out?

Asked by figbash (7468points) June 2nd, 2008

There are a few songs that I absolutely cannot listen to because they make me feel really creeped out – due to either the actual sound of the music, or the lyrics. Ex: Imaginary Lover by The Atlanta Rhythm Section, Into The Night by Benny Mardones or Daniel by Elton John. They just kind of rattle around in my head and make me feel all weird. Are there any that do that to you?

Anything by Barry Manilow.

Anything by Marilyn Manson. Not only do his lyrics creep me out; his looks creep me out even more.

Or anything by Michael Bolton.

most songs by nora jones make me feel like I am slipping into a coma. Especially that popular one from a while back.

Ah, yes – “Aqualung, my friend…”
Drilled a Wire Through My Cheek by Blue October. Uh, wow. Also She’s My Ride Home

@steelmarket…Blue October is awesome. You can feel Justin Furstenfeld’s angst, pain, joy, madness, etc in everyone of his songs. The guy is an amazing songwriter only recently receiving the credit and exposure he and his extremely tight and talented band so richly deserve (what a fucking amazing fiddle player, alone worth the price of admission to a Blue October concert). I have their entire catalogue, (less their first which is still embroiled in a legal mess), and enjoy them immensely. Check out their live “Argue With a Tree” if you have not already done so…absolutely priceless. See you around…. wtf

Killer on the Road by the Doors.
also, I was in New York for the first time. I was on my way home from Europe and I was going to take the train to Boston to see my niece before heading home to California. My husband and I got a hotel room by the airport in New York and he flew home while I was to get to Grand Central Station. I had never spent any time on the east coast but everyone told me it was easy to get a train to Grand Central Station. Aparently I got on the wrong train so I turned around to go back the airport. I figured I would just take a cab. I was going to miss my train so I was getting worried. A man in baggage claim at the airport and a man in a black suit said he was a limo driver and asked if I needed a ride. I asked him how much we agreed on a price and he grabbed my bag and we went to the limo. While we were driving he had music on the stereo. The music kept chanting; “You’re in the Death Car, You’re in the Death Car.” I was freaking out. I asked him if he would please change the radio station. When we pulled up to the train station I was so relieved but I did talk to a police officer at the train station and told him what happened. he didn’t seem to concerned but I will never take a limo ride I didn’t pre arrange again.

Hell is for children – Pat Benetar The title alone just makes blood shoot out of my eyes! I don’t know the meaning behind the song but just because of that phrase I can’t listen to that song!

Strange and Beautiful by Aqualung

I’ve been watching your world from afar
I’ve been trying to be where you are
And I’ve been secretly falling apart
Unseen

To me, you’re strange and you’re beautiful
You’d be so perfect with me
But you just can’t see
You turn every head but you don’t see me

I’ll put a spell on you
You’ll fall asleep
I’ll put a spell on you
And when I wake you, I’ll be the first thing you see
And you’ll realize that you love me

Yeah, yeah

Sometimes the last thing you want comes in first
Sometimes the first thing you want never comes
I know that waiting is all you can do, sometimes

I’ll put a spell on you
You’ll fall asleep
I’ll put a spell on you
And when I wake you, I’ll be the first thing you see
And you’ll realize that you love me

I’ll put a spell on you
You’ll fall asleep
I’ll put a spell on you
And when I wake you, I’ll be the first thing you see
And you’ll realize that you love me

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Stone Temple Pilots – Sex Type Thing. The band claims to have written it about date rape, but honestly, it makes them sound like a gang of rapists.
