Topic: Best songs in a horror movie?

What are the best songs in horror movies? What songs best match up to that certian scene in a horror movie?

Re: Best songs in a horror movie?

One of my favorites in in the beginning of the mini-series The Stand, at the beginning, Blue Oyster Cult - Dont Fear the Reaper. Just the song playing when the camera paning over the dead bodies in the secret goverment labs.
