I don't have time to go through the thread until later (because Steelers game), so to hopefully not repeat a song, here's what kids of every age has on their minds on Halloween.
This is who did the song before BowWow.

You or someone else posted this last year, too, in a similar thread. I'm just curious what you hear in it that's so creepy. Is it the noirish tone?

Anyways, here we go:

Unfortunately, the originally video for "Charlotte Sometimes," a ghost story filmed in an abandoned school for girls, doesn't seem to be available on YouTube, but this live version is illustrated by a still from it.

***Spoilers under video, if you care about music video spoilers***

The Cure - Charlotte Sometimes (1982 05 21 Huggenthalle, Germany)
Youtube QUvaX5U2gJc



It's actually a timely video. A girl wanders through the empty gothic school building and sees the ghost of her doppelganger in 19th-century dress. When she walks into the infirmary and sees the other girl's body under a sheet (apparently the victim of a Victorian infectious disease), she runs from the building.

This is, I think, a "scopitone," a precursor of the music video printed on color 16mm film and played in video juke boxes in bars in the early Sixties.

Not exactly "spooky" or "scary", but it's got something.  Maybe a little "gothic".

Noir? No, it's just creepy. The minor key. The big intervals. It's like Music for Renfield.
