I read something recently, probably on these boards, about how a belief in the supernatural was one of the common characteristics of human societies. Not me personally , I like to think – but I have to confess it goes a little deeper than that. I’m not keen on ghost stories because they scare me – even something like The Wife Of Ushers Well can cause a shiver, and that’s a song fer chrissakes.
Which made me think – there must be other songs which are also ghost stories. An interesting little sub-genre for a thread. I’ll kick us off with the aforementioned Wife Of Ushers Well:
I can think of one more example, but it’s a bit of a cheat. I’m guessing there must be quite a few others.
What have you got?
