The new Death Cab for Cutie album was released last week, and I’ve been intermittently earwormed with the first single, “I Will Possess Your Heart.” And, wow, is that one of the creepiest songs ever– you get the sense that he’s not entirely sure whether he needs to possess the rest of her, or if her heart in a jar in the basement would suffice.
You don’t see many pop songs that are quite that unabashedly creepy. Which makes this seem like a good topic for a Non-Dorky Poll, in multiple-choice format:
The creepiest pop song ever is:
A) “Every Breath You Take” by the Police
B) “Creep” by Radiohead
C) “My Curse” by the Afghan Whigs(*)
D) “I Will Possess Your Heart” by Death Cab for Cutie
E) Some other song that I will name in the comments.
Leave your answer in the comments. Explaining your reasoning is a bonus, but not strictly necessary on a multiple-choice test.
(*- the song off Gentlemen that’s sung by a woman, who is apparently named Marcy Mays.)
