I start a LOT of topics, and this is my 4th, I think.

A few Beatles songs that give me the creeps are Revolution 9 , Blue Jay Way , Long, Long, Long , and A Day In The Life . These songs are all great, though!

Elmore James' got nothing on this baby!

This may be blasphemy, but I still have never listened to Revolution 9 all the way through. It’s too scary!

My dad was a huge fan of the Rat Pack. He loved to go to Vegas and watch them have a party onstage. I always thought that was the opposite of the Beatles premise, which was to do be one with their audience. The first time I heard You Know My Name, I listened in dread as my heroes seemed to be morphing into my dad’s heroes.

That’s awesome. Probably what John was going for. Its a really spooky piece I remember it scaring the hell out of me as a kid. 

The strings in I Am The Walrus are great, but they have always given me the creeps, especially the section before “sitting in an english garden” section.

The story about the Eleanor Rigby graveyard gave me the shivers when I first heard it. 

The song is pretty creepy in general, to be honest. “Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door”, yikes

No Beatles song creeps me out, but the scariest would be Long, Long, Long , Cry Baby Cry and Revolution 9 . But their scary in an enjoyable way.

 

The White Album in general. It reminds me of works from David Lynch, if anyone is familiar with him. Especially Twin Peaks.

 

And I’ve listened to Revolution 9 many times. (Take this, brother, may it serve you well…!)

Few songs that gave me the creeps are Good Day Sunshine (different key note and echoing in the outro) and Wild Honey Pie (it’s a outtake and the instrumental in the intro).

the ending of Long, Long, Long sounds like a spirit being summoned or something

I think the coda on I Want You (She’s So Heavy) spooked me a bit when I was younger, with the building intensity and wind noises and stuff

Paul’s vocals on “Wild Honey Pie ” really disturb me, because I get the impression (correctly or not) that he was trying for some kind of parodic blackface-minstrelsy effect. That may not be the case atall, but I can’t unhear it that way. 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Yesterday .  When I was very young, I used to be afraid of storms.  I was about six years old, and there were some dark clouds looming on the horizon.  My sister was listening to the song Yesterday on the radio.  In my anxious state, I remember clearly thinking clearly “Why do they make such sad songs?”.  This is one of my most vivid memories.  The Beatles popped up frequently in my life.
