Playlist: Songs to Scare You

By Katie Mehas

We couldn’t very well let our “Fear” issue pass us by without putting together a list of creepy songs. Emma and I would have had serious men in black suits and Robert Smith hair breaking down our doors to revoke our Goth Cards, and we can’t have that.

And so I give you: The Jack Move Playlist of Songs to Scare You. Before you get too worked up, we tried to avoid too many of the “scary song” clichĂ©s, so you won’t find “Thriller” on our list. Anyway, it’s too familiar to really creep anyone out these days. This playlist probably leans a bit to the stompy side, but I suppose that’s my own personal taste creeping in. If industrial music creeps you out too much, I won’t tell anyone if you skip a track or two.
