    I used to love that song, but I  just listened to it again and it's majorly creepy now.

    Yes.
    It was always creepy to me, even at the height of its popularity. I still like the song a lot and Foster the People. I have two of their full albums and I like all of the songs on both albums.

     'Pumped Up Kicks' could be still a great song for me with totally different lyrics.

    :)  This one, too, has always been creepy to me at its height of popularity. And I really, really like The Police's own re-doing of the song here, from 1986.  :)

    This one might not really count because to me, it’s always sounded creepy from the very first time I heard it.  I’ve never understood how or why others think it’s a good idea for a song’s premise or title or lyrics. I think it’s a shame because I love so many other songs of his. 

    “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” Billy Ocean, 1988.

    I call it “The Child Molesters’ Song”.  Grrrrrrr

    :(

    “It’s No Fun Being An Illegal Alien” Genesis, 1984. 


    (Although truth be told, I’m not sure how popular it ever was.)



    LYRICS

    Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
    With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
    The sun is shining so I head for the park,
    With a bottle of Tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes
    I got a cousin and she got a friend,
    Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
    At his apartment I knocked on the door,
    He wouldn't come out until he got paid.
    Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do
    If they find out you know that they'll never let me through.
    It's no fun being an illegal alien
    It's no fun being an illegal alien
    Down at the office had to fill out the forms
    A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose,
    Up to the counter to see what they think
    They said 'It doesn't count man, it ain't written in ink'.
    Don't trust anybody least not around here, cause
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    An illegal alien, O.K.
    Consideration for your fellow man
    Wouldn't hurt anybody, sure fits in with my plan
    Over the border, there lies the promised land
    So don't tell anybody what I wanna do
    If they find out you know that they'll never let me through.
    It's no fun being an illegal alien,
    It's no fun being an illegal alien,
    It's no fun being an illegal alien,
    It's no fun being an illegal alien.

    I always sort of liked this song.  :)
    I never listened to closely to the lyrics on this one, I admit.

    I don’t know how this song wasn’t always creepy.

    This is a major creative song. This album is one piece of solid gold history in so many ways.
