Thread Name: Creepy songs
Subject: RE: Creepy songs
All of my life by Steve Earle was actually written for the remake of the movie Psycho. Vince Vaughn played Norman Bates and it was released a while back now. So it being creepy is right on target. I agree lyrically it is creepy.

I think What's he builing in there? by Tom Waits is creepy especially with that video. Someone said that Waits was the paranoid one and nothing was really up with his neighbor. To me that is the creepy part of it. It could happen to anyone. You are going about your daily business and some paranoid freak is convinced you are up to something and has acquired an obsession about what they think you are up to. That is creepy I think. Then again I have had stalkers. If you are lucky enough to never have one this song may not hit you the same way.
