A quick post this morning since I’m really getting into this blogging thing again. Most of the time, when you think of music to go along with scary stuff, you think of music in a minor key. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor springs immediately to mind. The minor key of the music helps to create a spooky atmosphere and the tension you associate with scary stuff.
But what happens when you shift something familiar from a minor key to a major key? The results can be, well, more disturbing than you might imagine.
I saw this on Reddit last night and I couldn’t stop playing it. I sent it to Anna and she was “OMG WAT.” As the fine folks on Reddit said, it’s like something you’d hear when playing Wii Sports or something. Heidi says she’s waiting for Link to appear.
I find this to be more disturbing and unsettling than the original X-Files theme song. But maybe it’s just me.
