Most Haunting Songs


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

No, you're not. It is a bit spine-racking if you think as you listen. - PositronWildhawk

I agree with Positron Wildhawk; this song is a spiny shiver for me too. Basically, the Beatles are lamenting over how this world is turning for the worse, which is making their guitars weep. - Kiteretsunu

22Child In Time - Deep Purple

Epic anti-war song. Classic - Metal_Treasure

23How the Gods Kill - Danzig

You wanna shivers up and down your spine? OK, get ready and watch the video. - Metal_Treasure

24Angel - Sarah McLachlan
25Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

Not sure how I forgot to include this one. But it's here now, at any rate. - PetSounds

26Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

A ballad about suicide and right to choose whether to live or die (if you feel you don't fit in). It's a controversial viewpoint but the song is awesome.

In the song, the character's life was saved once but he didn't want to be saved and he will try to kill himself again. He's maybe in coma and his thoughts come from this place between life and death. - Metal_Treasure

27Extreme Ways - Moby
28Hey You - Pink Floyd
29A Little Bit of Everything - Dawes
30Riders On the Storm - The Doors

Yes! As haunting as it gets! - PetSounds

31Breathe - Fred
32My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

One of the greatest vocal performances I've ever heard.

"These are my last words - I need to rest
In fear and anger, I'll lay down my head
A faithless spirit in a broken man
... The hope became another lie
Like the non-existing Father-God
I'll close my eyes, goodbye
Don't wait for me on the other side". - Metal_Treasure

33Ain't No Reason - Brett Dennen
34Echoes - Pink Floyd
35A Soldier's Silent Night - Father Ted
36Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
37Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

This song is very spooky - ryanrimmel

38Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton
39Cry - Brian Wilson
40Email From a Vampire - Robbie Williams
