In particular you may like:

My favorite is O Fortuna: you can close your eyes and see king Arthur and his knight come up over that hill in the final battle against Modred from the movie Excalibur.

One that I have enjoyed this past year has been Creek Mary’s Blood: a haunting Native American melody that is great for writing

Chained to the Bottom: A bit different, you even got a washboard and I swear I saw a washtub bass . Anyway enjoy The Bloody Jug Band   

For the oddest, got to go with The Cockroach that Ate Cincinnati, those damn things will never die.

Conjure of Sacrifice contains samples of an actual ceremony with conjuring prayers and accelerating drum beats. Song comes from movie soundtrack of the 2005 voodoo horror-themed film, The Skeleton Key. 

Creature Stole My Surfboard by The Dead Elvi is a spoof about a surfer relating the time when The Creature took over his board for some late-night surfing.  The band is dressed as zombie Elvi…  

New to the video lineup: Roky Erickson – Creature with the Atom Brain 1980
