Subject: RE: Creepy songs
THE LITTLE GIRL AND THE DREADFUL SNAKE is a song I find creepy and yet irresistible, especially when the singer runs to the aid of his fatally snake-bitten daughter and voices the line "the snake was watching us from close by".

IMAGINARY TROUBLE, for some odd reason, raises the hackles on my neck.

THE KNOXVILLE GIRL. Particularly because it is usually performed in an up-tempo way that makes the graphic description of the murder seem even more grotesque.

THE FROZEN GIRL, with its air of doom, and the knowledge that the entire tragedy would be avoidable if the moronic sleigh-driver and Charlotte had enough sense to put a coat on her.
