When I was about 7 the video the Billy Idol's "White Wedding" used to make me bawl, especially when he pulled the ring off his girlfriend's finger and it was bleeding. Hasn't quite held up as well as those listed above.

What's the song on Lou Reed's "Berlin" with all the crying, screaming kids? Is it the title track? Anyway, fucked up.

When I was younger, and usually mighty stoned, Alice Coopers "Black Juju" used to freak me out. Now it's more like a comedy piece, but back then, creepy.

Song off "Berlin" is "The Kids" -
"They're taking her children a-way
because they said
she was not a
good mother"

equally creepy is next song "The Bed" which details his (fictitious) wife's suicide.

"Billion Dollar Baby" really creeped me out as a kid, as did "Toys In The Attic". Although, it was really the album covers that creeped me out.

That solo record Gene Simmons did last year was pretty scary.

When we were little a buddy and I used to listen to "Revolution 9" in the dark. That combined with the photo of Paul that came in the White Album really spooked me.

Also, "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Ha."

More recently, Phil Collins's records creep me out, but thankfully I haven't been subjected to any recently.

4) 'Knife' by Robyn Hitchcock. "Here is a pointy, daggery knife. And it's pointing at you." I used to skip over that track on Queen Elvis for a long time.

5) 'Intruder' by Peter Gabriel. Still creeps me out. "I know how to move quietly, creep across creaky wooden floors.'
Excellent. or how about Gabriel's "No Self Control":

Got to pick up the phone
I will call any number
I will talk to anyone
I know I'm gone too far
Much too far I gone this time
And I don't want to think what I've done
I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop

It's even worse when listening to while stoned. Same goes for much of the Sigur Ros album ().

Weird thing about the Sigur Ros album was that the same sound effect used in that movie The Ring sounds almost exactly like the ambient noise at the beginning of Track 2. So that makes it an especially creepy song to listen to.

Phil Collins "In the Air Tonight" used to creep me out when I was younger because of that urban legend about what the song was "really about."

I must admit to always liking that song, especially that one part -- right after "so stranger to you and me." Who still air-drums to that part? Come on, don't be embarrassed...

almost anything by Current 93...
I think Wild Rose by Nick Cave with Kylie is a lot creepier than The Curse of Milhaven...dammit thats just a creepy album because its so twisted and yet so beatiful, you feel weird enjoying it.
Eleanor Rigby is the only other one i can think of right now...
