Subject: RE: Creepy songs
Bobad you beat me to the draw I was going to put WHAT'S HE BUILDING by Tom Waits as well. Check out the video on youtube it is great.

RED RIGHT HAND by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is a great creepy non-folk song as well. I really love that song

"you'll see him in your nightmares you'll see him in your dreams"

"your just a microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan designed and directed by his red right hand"

Man Nick Cave is great I love his writing. Another one is DO YOU LOVE ME by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

"I met her on the night of fire and noise. Wild bells were ringing in wild skies. I knew from that moment on I'd love her until the day that I die. So I kissed her with a thousand tears. My lady of the various sorrows. Some begged some borrowed some stolen. Some kept safe for tomorrow."

That is also one of my favorite band names of all time. The Bad Seeds man that is just too cool I wish I had thought of that one. I wish I could have written the majority of Nick Cave's songs as well. Johnny Cash did a real creepy song of Nick Cave's. THE MERCY SEAT is the name of it and it is GREAT. I actually like Johnny's version better than Nick Cave's but then again I kinda like Johnny's version of HURT better than Nine Inch Nails. Oh man, I hate to admit that one let's just keep that between us lol. I perform some of Nick Cave's songs in an Appalachian Folk style. I do a dark minor groove and change the melody some to fit. Most of it though I don't have to change much at all. Check out
