3AM Eternal: The Louvin Brothers, “Knoxville Girl” (1956)

A haunting Appalachian murder ballad from the fine debut album by The Louvin Brothers.

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.
