As for creepy songs, there were quite a few that got Doctor Demento play back in the 80s/90s...Harry Nilsson (I think) had a song about a tractor-trailer of bananas that crashed horrifically ("32,000 Pounds Of Bananas"?) and of course, that celebration of cannibalism, "Timothy".
Harry Chapin did "Thirty Thousand Pounds Of Bananas".
