"Exit" is creepy, I agree.

So is "Miss Sarajevo", now that I know what it's about.

"Love Is Blindness" is also very haunting-that's possibly U2's most haunting song, in my opinion (but I love that song), as is "Mothers Of The Disappeared".

Some other songs that are haunting: "Nights In White Satin" by the Moody Blues-more so for the music than anything else, "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam, "One" by Metallica (considering what it's about...and the video just adds to that).

yeah "love is blindness" it's so beautifully haunting though...something about "acrobat"...like the swirling guitar stuff...they sound liek they're swirling to me anyway...

a lot of passengers creeps me out. like "corpse" which i think is kinda cool, but mostly creeps out bad, not good creeps out...

i avoid metallica and can't for the life of me remember "one"..what's is about?

jeremy is kinda chilling when you think about it...same with the whole alive/once/footsteps...i love pearl jam

"Angelene" by PJ Harvey comes to mind, from "Is This Desire?" album.

Also, from the same album, "My Beautiful Leah", which is one of the most chilling and depressing songs I've ever heard.

Never leaves my mind
The last words she said
"If I don't find it this time
Then I'm better off dead..."

What songs do that for you?
I started to get teary the first time I heard that song. Too bad Bono couldn't catch him(Michael H) when he heard his call.


"I would catch you
I'd catch you as you fall
I would catch you
I'd catch you if I heard your call

But you tore a hole in space like a dark star falls from grace
You burn across the sky and I'd find you wings to fly
And I would catch you
And I would catch your fall"

Metallica's "One" deals with the true story of this guy who lost his arms, legs, and face in the Vietnam War (I believe that's the one). I can't remember if he stepped on a landmine or if a bomb exploded right in front of him. And he's laying there in a bed-the only way he can communicate is by Morse Code by beating his head against the headboard of his bed, and in the video, he keeps saying "S.O.S."-he wants someone to just put him out of his misery. And at the end of the video, he's laying there all alone and all you hear is "S.O.S....help me...", and now every time I hear that song I think of that story and the end of that video and it's just creepy.

Couple of other songs to add:

Time In A Bottle-Jim Croce (especially the music at the end)-it's just eerie to know this song was recorded not long before he died when you listen to the lyrics.
Sounds Of Silence-Simon & Garfunkel

And there was another one I'd thought of last night, but I forget what it was right now.

i rented the movie called "the boxer" and didn't watch it for a couple days, and couldn't figure out WHY the simon and garfunkel song was stuck in my head...my mom asked if i had watched it and asked how different day-lewis' character was from the other movies i'd recently watched, and i said i hadn't seen it yet, and then she started singing simon and garfunkel..."*smacks self in the head* so THAT'S why i've had that stuck in my head!"
