Top 10 Scariest Beatles Songs


The Top Ten

1 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


None of the rest compare to Revolution 9.

This is no doubt the scariest song ever made

2 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.

This one should be number one!

3 Because - Abbey Road

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!

This has pretty dark lyrics too.

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

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.

15 Maxwell's Silver Hammer - Abbey Road

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?

16 Eleanor Rigby - Revolver

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