"Marquee Moon" by Television (my favorite song of all time):
I love that band. They just don't make 'em like that anymore. Granted, it would take a crazy perfectionist lead singer and guitarist, a rhythm
guitarist who had received electro-shock therapy, a heroin-addicted bassist, and one of the best drummers in punk music...
Most of the music I have is nothing but haunting or depressing stuff.
Here's some suggestions, I highly recommend them. The most haunting music on this list is by an ambient band from Iceland, Sigur Ros.
Home of the Brave - Spiritualized
Over the Pond - Album Leaf (Feat. Sigur Ros)
Lover's Spit (Redux version) - Broken Social Scene
Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl - Broken Social Scene
Girls - Death In Vegas
Have You Passed Through This Night? - Explosions In the Sky
Teardrop - Massive Attack
Now I Let Go - Moby
We Have a Map of the Piano - Mum
Street Spirit (Fade Out) - Radiohead
Svefn-G-Englar (Sleepwalkers) - Sigur Rós
Golden Hair - Slowdive
Rabbit In Your Headlights - U.N.K.L.E. (Feat. Radiohead)
First Breath After Coma - Explosions In the Sky

Anyone heard of Mulu? I find a lot of her stuff haunting but not sad, great talent this chick, shes a scouser too! (not that I am but I live in
Someone used this as the audio for a collage of nuke footage... I think that makes it seem all the more creepy and haunting. Since embedding that
