9 Horror Tracks Sure To Slay

Not all filmmakers possess the brilliant scoring skills of John Carpenter, who first displayed his minimalist's approach to film composing in the 1978 horror classic Halloween. Yet many have since adapted by creating soundtracks that conflict our perception of terrifying scenes by using well-known pop songs. Our prepossessed associations with these songs are juxtaposed by the horrific imagery, which subconsciously twists our minds, forever conditioning our memories. And unlike Pavlov's pup, these bells are accompanied by chills.

In honor of Halloween, we picked through masses of creepy flick's soundtracks to find the top 9 songs that have been perfectly infected by a film's haunting scene. Scroll through the spooky list below.

NSFW WARNING

Roy Orbison "Crying" - Gummo (1997)




Donovan - "Hurdy Gurdy Man" - Zodiac (2007)




Stealers Wheel "Stuck in the Middle" - Reservoir Dogs (1992)




"Singin' In The Rain" - A Clockwork Orange (1971)




Lou Reed "Perfect Day" - Transpotting (1996)



Trainspotting kept me forever off heroin, but coincidentally, forever hooked to Lou Reed. RIP.

Grandaddy "AM 180" - 28 Days Later (2002)




The Carpenters "We've Only Just Begun" - 1408 (2007)
