Revolution 9 is the only one and I got kinda freaked the first time I heard I Am The Walrus, but I love that song now. Other than that, I absolutely adore their songs, especially the psychedelic ones.

I used to listen to my CDs to fall asleep and Tomorrow Never Knows would always make me scared to close my eyes!

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Revolution 9, (the obvious answer) probably because I was listening to it at night (that was a mistake) especially if it is backwards.

The others never really spooked me out, but they're creepy in a way, like Blue Jay Way, The new Mary Jane, Helter Skelter, Tomorrow Never Knows and the ends of Long, Long, Long and Cry Baby Cry

No, can't say any of the music ever spooked me. I do dislike some of them (don't shoot me) and I just don't listen to them. Revolution 9 was probably the first to go, followed by Blue Jay Way. Those tunes do nothing for me, and neither do George's sitar songs. I like the sitar in moderation; Norwegian Wood is pretty cool. But anyway, I don't think I've ever been spooked by their music.

I absolutely love George's sitar songs. How come it does 'nothing' to you?

Blue Jay Way creeped me out big time the first time I heard it.
It's still a little spooky but in a more pleasant way now. Especially knowing how mundane the lyrical content of the song actually is.

The LOVE version of Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite is kinda creepy. Like a fairground where something terrible has happened.

@Ahhh Girl It's worth a listen at some point. The imagery of the actual cirque was what made LOVE of course but there are still some really nice mixes in there.

The Mr. Kite one was actually perfect for what was going on on the stage. But yeah, after a couple of verses it chains in the tune from She's So Heavy and eventually the end of the song erupts into a combo of She's So Heavy and Helter Skelter. Maybe it's the imagery at LOVE that spooked me but this mix is definitely more eerie than the original.

Other LOVE mixes that gave me chills were the slowed down A Capella version of Because and also the orchestrated While My Guitar Gently Weeps (that said I prefer the originals of both WMGGW features beautiful acoustic vocals along with eerie violin but it was weird hearing him talking about his guitar weeping when there was no guitar in the mix)

i had a cassette copy of my Abbey Road vinyl and used to listen to the whole album with my walkman  in the bed at night, when going to sleep...i couldn't help feeling a bit scared in the final crescendo of "I want you..."...in the dark with all those white noises and wind effects...

 

Anyway i loved the track and still do. Brilliant, brilliant...

Why don't you put it on the toast?

I'm A Loser sends chills down my spine, I don't know why. It's like the feeling you get when you hear a song you haven't heard since infancy that has some unremembered memory attached to it, like a forgotten dream. Very peculiar sensation. I love it. heart 

That's it though... other than that, I'm never spooked by Beatlesongs, even the weird ones. 

If I go insane, please don't put your wires in my brain.
