3AM Eternal: Throwing Muses, “Rabbits Dying” (1986)

Wherein we recall a humorous moment with Throwing Muses’ Kristin Hersh regarding this song….

3AM Eternal: Vince Guaraldi, “The Great Pumpkin Waltz” (1966)

And now for a break in the scary stuff, it’s the theme song to the perennial Hallowe’en special, Charlie Brown!

3AM Eternal: The Buoys, “Timothy” (1971)

One of the most disturbing rock and roll hits of all time. Don’t believe the hype that it’s about the horse…..

3AM Eternal: Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band, “When I See Mommy I Feel Like A Mummy” (1978)

This is a haunting little demo version of a weird song, which is only made weirder in this stripped-down form.

3AM Eternal: Deniece Williams, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (1984)

Stupid dumb Stephen King and his dumb movie, ruining a perfectly good song for me and instilling terror in a ten year old kid.

3AM Eternal: Gerard McMann, “Cry Little Sister” (1987)

Major-label “goth” anthem from the 1980s, but it–and the film it came from–served as a gateway drug to a generation of Goth kids….

3AM Eternal: Nick Cave Featuring The Bad Seeds, “Saint Huck” (1984)

Nick Cave’s post-Birthday Party debut album proved that he was still very in touch with the darker side of life. We don’t recommend listening to this song in the dark.

3AM Eternal: Slint, “Don, Aman” (1991)

Slint’s Spiderland was and is a very important record and a cornerstone of 1990s indie rock. This particular song is creepy, weird, and wonderful.

3AM Eternal: Nervous Norvus, “Transfusion” (1956)

A novelty song about car accidents is actually a much more graphic number than its silliness makes it seem.

3AM Eternal: Alice Cooper, “Welcome To My Nightmare” (1975)

It’s Hallowe’en time again, so we’re going to prep you for that special day by giving you some scary, dark, depressing, haunting music. First up is a wonderful appearance by a master of the horror-rock genre.
