Your Input: Great “Scary” Songs?

Whether you celebrate Halloween or not, this is always a fun one…

What is your favorite “scary” sounding song?

Gotta admit, we love a song by The Who called “DR JEKYLL & MR HYDE…” (Great chords) It has a nice sinister feel.

(And by the way, it’s okay to say “Monster Mash” if you dig it)

There coming to take me away.

Al Seger

They’re coming to take you away for crimes against spelling.

Mike

My first favorite song: Sean Cassidy: Thatโ€™s Rock and Roll, 1976

Bill Boys

The End by Blue October is about a man killing his wife and her lover. The man telling the story creeps up on the bedroom window, then into the house. catching them having sex. He kills the other man, then his wife, then he places the gun in his own mouth. It’s terrifying, in both sound and story.

Mary Benedict

Great issue! Happy Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ!

Bill Boys

I watched Mary Poppins, I think, at a drive in, in 1965 when I was 5. I remember being enamored with “Spoon Full of Sugar” and especially “Chim Chim Cher-ee” I loved “Chim Chim Cher-ee”. It just occurred to me that I probably loved it so much because it was in a minor chord. It ALSO just occurred to me that “Chim Chim Cher-ee” is in 3/4 time. My love for songs in 3/4 time is now 56 freakin’ years old. It so cool that the brain is set up in such a way as to be attracted to a certain time signature while you’re still in Kindergarten. Thanks for opening some inactive synapses on that question. My mind is now blown. I’m a sucker for minor chords and three beats per measure because of Chim Chim Cher-ee. I can’t wait to tell my daughter this.

Also, I remember singing “Can’t Buy Me Love” by the Beatles in Kindergarten. That was 1965. I was 5. I think I latched on to”You’ve Got to Hide your Love Away” and the song “Help!” also when I was 5.

Thanks for asking that question.
It’s cool to discover things about yourself from a half century ago!

Bill Boys

….And “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” is also in 3/4 time. Mind blown.

Bill Boys

Sugar Sugar is kind of special to me too. I got up very early on Saturday Mornings to watch The Archies cartoon. I though that song was so cool in 1969 when I was a 9 year old. I believed the Archie’s were inspired by the TV show, The Monkees to release Sugar Sugar and Bang Shang a Lang. They had started that process in 1966. I was six the first time I heard Papa Gene’s Blues, written by Nesmith.

Al Seger

Love Will Keep Us Together. Great song recorded by The Captain and Toenail.

Al Seger

Probably not the first but I really liked Where Evil Grows by the Poppy Family. It still ranks highly on my list of favourites.
