Most Haunting Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 While 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

22 Child In Time - Deep Purple

Epic anti-war song. Classic - Metal_Treasure

23 How the Gods Kill - Danzig

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

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

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

26 Beyond 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

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

Yes! As haunting as it gets! - PetSounds

31 Breathe - Fred
32 My 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

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

This song is very spooky - ryanrimmel

38 Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton
39 Cry - Brian Wilson
40 Paradise Circus - Massive Attack
