Creepy Country Songs

Post by Nostalgiascape » Tue May 07, 2019 4:18 am

There seems to be an old tradition in country music that is lost now in the modern pop country era. The tradition of seriously creepy songs. Songs like Ode to Billy Joe, One Dyin and A burying, me and little Andy, and Psycho by Eddie Noac. And while not all creepy country songs would fit on a Halloween mix, some do. If you do your research online you'll discover such songs and I hope you'll listen to them late at night with the lights out.
The wind howls and old shudders slam. Leaves blow in through an open door.A dark figure enters in. A blade slides down from his sleeve.

J.D. Mcpherson 'A Gentle Awakening'.

More blues than country but the same spirit...so to speak.

On a happy note check out his Christmas album, ' Socks'.

It was released last year; all original compositions and came out of the blue light a bolt of lightning.

All of the songs are on YouTube and are little animated videos.

My favorite is 'Holly, Carol Candy & Joy'.

All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Oh, I remember Ode to Billy Jo. The girl who wrote it (Bobbie Gentry?) was from Mississippi, so she was quite the celebrity in my home state back in the day.
