301 Stay - Shakespear's Sister Stay - Shakespear's Sister

Song about a woman whose lover is in a coma. She's begging him to return to her in the real world but he is being held back by, What I think, death herself. This song always gives me goosebumps when I listen to it.

302 The Host of Seraphim - Dead Can Dance The Host of Seraphim - Dead Can Dance

The last track on Madonna's 'Ray of Light' gets right under your skin...

Stone cold by Demi Lovato sounds super creepy

Haunting, vulnerable, hopeful, and beautiful. What more could you want?
