    Never heard of the "Windmill of your mind " song. So I just listened to it now on YouTube. The Muppet version just made me dizzy.

    Yeah, that Windmills of Your Mind creature is weird! The cool thing is is that he turns up later in the Veteranarian's Hospital skit. Even for a one-shot character, that's incredible.

    Yeah the first time I saw the Windmills of Your Mind sketch was isolated on the World of Jim Henson documentary and it terrified me. I guess the whole idea of the creature not being able to stop and all freaked me out. But a few years later I saw the actual Muppet Show episode and strangely I felt a lot better when I saw him turn up again on Vet's Hospital, lol.

    I agree; I didn't even make it 15 seconds in! But if you want to hear a great BLT song dub, check out Worthless in Hungarian.

    Anyway, when I was little I was terrified of Heart of Glass (Blondie) and Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen).

    You know, as silly as it sounds, the children's song On Top of Spaghetti really bothers me. I don't know why. I'm ok with On Top of Old Smokey. But Spaghetti *shudders*

    I even got in trouble in elementary school for refusing to sing it

    "The Low Rider" still freaks me out. My dad likes to tease me about it.

    The closing theme of the Carol Burnett show used to upset me, scare me...
    ...because it was true: "before you know it, comes the time you have to say goodbye." Yet I liked it. I tried to shake off the funny feeling it gave me.

    "Grim Grinning Ghosts" from Disney's Sing-A-Long Songs.​
    My little brother and I would watch that tape constantly and every time this song would come up, we'd run and hide somewhere or fast forward it to the next song. x) It doesn't really scare me anymore, but it's still pretty creepy...Those trees, man... ._.​

    Yeah, I looked it up, it works! Although some of the genders of the cars changed, I liked it. Anyway, why Heart of Glass?

    I think it was her use of falsetto along with the layering technique used on her voice.

    To me, it's just confusing! I can't really understand what she's saying!!! :confused:

    "Number 9....Number 9...Number 9..."

    Yeah I can see being creeped out by "Heart of Glass," the combination of the effects and how her voice goes all weird at "but I was so blind."

    I just recently found this, but if I was little and I watched this, I'd be scarred for life! Wouldn't you?

    The Muppet Show version of Coconut used to terrify me. I think it was the nurses with their screechy singing and increasingly bizarre appearances.

    Does anyone remember a live-action TV show called Zardip's Search for Healthy Wellness? It was about an alien boy who was learning about humans. Anyway, there's one episode with a song about pain, with a cartoon showing everything that's described in the song. Both the song and the cartoon used to creep me out. I remember seeing one guy fall on the floor and his eyes turn into stars (dead? :eek:). There's also someone who gets his hand stuck in a car door. I've been trying to find it, just to see if it would have the same effect on me now, but it doesn't seem to be anywhere online.
