Thread Name: Creepy songs
Subject: RE: Creepy songs
I saw a guy perform at an acoustic club once who unintentionally turned a pretty Bruce Springsteen ballad into the creepiest song imaginable.

It concerned watching a woman as she went about her daily routine and was originally written to be affectionate and romantic, however the tuneless slightly catatonic manner of this guys performance made it seem as though it was written by some obsessive murderous stalker.

In the right hands any song can be creepy.
