^ D.O.A. still freaks me out now!

One song that comes to mind is Helter Skelter. Always was unsettled as a kid at how it faded in and out at the end. I didn't even know about the Manson connection then!

Pink Floyd - One Of these Days. Scared the living shit outta me the first time I heard it at 8 years old. I was in my brothers room, lying on the bed, headphones on, a single candle flickering in a pitch black room at 11pm. I am really getting into Roger Waters driving bass line, they keys, everything moving like some sinister organism. I begin to slip into that midway point between consciousness and sleep when all of a sudden..."ONE OF THESE DAYS I AM GONNA CUT YOU INTO LITTLE PIECES..."

I bolted outta that bed and ran like my ass was on fire. Man that freaked my ass out. My brother was rolling on the floor laughing so hard he nearly pissed himself.

Not really when I was a kid but the intro of LA Woman is something from a bad trip or an horror movie, but awesome though !

And even though I like Pink Floyd's Another Brick In the Wall, certain parts of the music video for this song used to freak me out and make me feel totally squeamish :wacko:

The Beatles never had that effect on me except for Revolution#9 on the White Album. "Paul is dead":unsure:


Definitely...

  What is this that stands before me? 
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick, and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
OH NOOOOO........

10CC- Under your thumb was quite scary. Especially the sirens near the end of the track. I like it though. And Prince- Sign o the times had a similar effect.

This song freaked me out when I was 12.  Not really scary....it just used to send me in a zone when I put on the headphones.

No Quarter. Houses remains my favorite album with Zeppelin 3 a close second, No Quarter remains my favorite Zeppelin song. When I saw TSRTS I was stunned at how well they nailed the No Quarter fantasy scene, and the dry ice fitting into the song's darkness may be my favorite Zeppelin live moment. Out On The Tiles and Ten Years Gone come to mind as well.

Great topic.

This album cover. I laugh now because, you know,...it's The Doobie Brothers but it was no laughing matter back then.

I don't think I could even read back then but thanks to the Catholic Church it was all demons and hellfire. Fucking dicks.

Ufo's. please Mr Corusoe, please could you 
Give your regarded opinion on this nonsense 
About spaceships and even space people.

Thank you. as you all know, you just can't 
Believe everything you see and hear, now can you.  
If you will excuse me, is must be on my way.

Forgot to say. I believe- Tears for fears. And i think it was called, Nightboat by Duran Duran. Videos that were quire scary were, Thriller-Michael Jackson. And Vienna-Ultravox was a little bit. But i really love the track.
