Top 10 Scariest Beatles Songs


The Top Ten

1 Revolution 9 - The Beatles (White Album) Revolution 9 - The Beatles (White Album)

One time, I was at my friend's house for her birthday party/sleepover. Everyone was doing who knows what but two of my friends and I. I walked to my friends' Alexa and was all like "Alexa, play Revolution 9" because it's a creepy song and the lights just happened to be turned off. She played it and my two friends were so freaked out. - TheCuteBeatle

I listened to the whole thing yesterday. I almost listened to it twice, but then my father went inside lmao - Misfire


None of the rest compare to Revolution 9.

2 Blue Jay Way - Magical Mystery Tour Blue Jay Way - Magical Mystery Tour

Honestly, This song used to creep me out, but now it's my jam and I jam more too it. Want to know how to make it not creppy? HEAR THE BACK STORY! George Harrison was waiting for his friend and got mad, so he made a song about him waiting for his friend in his home on Blue Jay Way, and you hear "or I may be asleep" meaning he is going to fall asleep because his friend is taking so long.

As a Beatles Fan, this song was so weird at first listen. I Am The Walrus is weird of course, but I just found this even more unusual.

What’s wrong with this one?

This one should be number one!

3 Because - Abbey Road Because - Abbey Road

I love this song. - Misfire

The mixture of the sounds give this almost happy but off-sounding sound, and I love it.

4 Tomorrow Never Knows - Revolver

Beautiful love this

I find almost all of these songs rather creepy, except for Because and I'm Only Sleeping. The seagulls, the vocal fed through a Leslie speaker, and the backwards guitar solo on this song give me shivers. - PetSounds

I love this one!

5 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - Abbey Road

Not scary at all, but probably the most for beatles standards. - I80

Fun fact, when John Lennon screams, YEEAAAH! You can hear a faint voice say “What was that about!? ” - TopTenTed

6 Helter Skelter - The Beatles (White Album)

... At the end when all the noise comes back!


Ikr! When the music comes back it freaky!

7 Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! - Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

Lol I don’t understand. It just sounds like circus music. Nothing creepy. - Misfire

I have been listening to this since I was a child you WEIRDOS.

How is this scary. - SammySpore

8 The Fool On the Hill - Magical Mystery Tour

This song is just sad!

9 I Am the Walrus - Magical Mystery Tour


No. This is the best love song of all time. 😤 - Misfire

This has pretty dark lyrics too.

The most disturbing song I've ever heard. Deserves to be #1.

10 Its All Too Much - Yellow Submarine

The Newcomers

? The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill - The Beatles

Yoko makes it scary. - Misfire

The Contenders

11 Long, Long, Long - The Beatles (White Album)

That ending... Probably the scariest thing I've ever heard in my life.

The song is quiet at the beginning and middle. It’s just an average meditative track by George Harrison. But just as you fall asleep... you have nightmares due to the ending. It’s eerie and frightening. This deserves to be number one!

I am so calm...this song is so meditative...why did the people at TheTopTens put this on the Scariest Beatles Songs list? I feel like I’m gonna fall asleep...zz...OH NO! NOW I AM HAVING NIGHTMARES BECAUSE OF THE ENDING WITH THE EERIE BOTTLE FALLING AND GEORGE’S OR WHOEVER’S CALLING! WAKE ME UP! Yay. I am up again. I want to listen to that song again so I get scared to death. Bye-bye.

Most of the song is quiet, and the notes that they play are kind of frightening. But that ending"the one with George’s calling and the thing that sounds like a falling bottle"that’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever heard.

12 Run for Your Life - Rubber Soul

Creepy controlling manipulative ass who wants to kill his ex... this isn't number one WHY?

13 Only a Northern Song - Yellow Submarine
14 Maxwell's Silver Hammer - Abbey Road

"Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead"

Nice song. I actually find it funny despite how dark it is. Lmao - Misfire

A chipper, upbeat song... about a kid in school who beats people's heads in with a hammer.

It’s literally a song about a murderer?

15 Strawberry Fields Forever - Magical Mystery Tour

You obviously don't know what Strawberry Fields is?
Then again you have probably never been to Penny Lane.


This is my favorite Beatles song ever. - happyhappyjoyjoy

16 I'm Only Sleeping - Revolver

I like this song though. :’) - Misfire

I love this song! It makes me happy!

17 A Day in the Life - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

The high pitched noise at the end and the weird loop of noises at the end.

18 Eleanor Rigby - Revolver

No way! I love this song! It’s my favorite one! - Misfire

Lyrically very pessimistic and the strings in the background are menacing.

19 Octopus's Garden - The Beatles

um wut?

20 She Said She Said - Revolver

What is this doing on here it is not scary

21 Cry Baby Cry - The Beatles (White Album)
