On our way home last night, Bryan and I happened to catch the Halloween edition of Sound Opinions on the radio - and they were, of course, talking about the songs that creeped them out the most. This really got us thinking, so we put our heads together (well, Bryan's vast-knowledge-of-music head and my minute-understanding-of-what-music-even-is head) and put together a little list of creepytown Halloween sounds for you! Happy Halloweenie, and thanks to Bryan for help on this one.

Le Chat Du CafĂ© Des Artistes - Charlotte Gainsbourg 
When you're dead, you're dead. My top pick.

The Amazing Sounds of Orgy - Radiohead 
Bryan's ultimate #1 top pick.

Pirate Jenny - Nina Simone 
Sound Opinions played this one, I'd never heard it before but DANG. Nina Simone knows what's up.

God's Away on Business - Tom Waits 
Master of demented songs, and a great music video!

Venus in Furs - The Velvet Underground 
"It's like a fever dream" - Bryan

What's a Girl To Do - Bat For Lashes 
1:20 in this video seriously haunts my dreams/makes me want to draw 500 million ghosts.

Wicked Game - Chris Isaak 
Another genius pick by Bryan, Chris Isaak with a song that manages to be 100% creepy and 100% sexy at the same time.

b - iamamiwhoami 
Remember when there was speculation that this lady might have been Christina Aguilera? Xtina!

Devil Town - Daniel Johnston.
Disturbing song from a disturbed mind. 

 And, to end on a light note, this silly song for funsies:  
Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell
