    Inspired by the creepy pics thread. Any songs that creep you out? (In a good way, possibly).

    I'll post a few to start.

    Miranda Sex Garden - A Fairytale About Slavery

    I couldn't find a recording of the original. Lots of covers about. Eddie Noack with Leon Payne's Psycho.

    Skinny Puppy - Choraline. This is a live version and the first one I heard.

    Fantomas - Delirium Cordia. The whole album is 1 track, and over an hour of creepy brilliance.

    Gary Puckett & The Union Gap had a couple that could get someone arrested:
    This Girl Is A Woman Now
    Young Girl
    Either one could have ended up with a story on 20/20 or Dateline.

    Not even close to songs with lyrics like:
    Francine just turned thirteen
    I'm just mad about fourteen
    She was just seventeen (no idea what the age of consent is in GB, though)

    At least Gary didn't specify ages...

    The lyrics and music for this are creepy / depressing.

    Home Sweet Home, Peter Gabriel.

    I think almost anything Gordon Gano sings sounds a little creepy. But this is particularly so

    I like that song lots, and I've never found it creepy. Funny how perspectives vary on these things

    Good one Jupiter! Never heard it and had a completely different outlook on Norah.
