I forgot to mention a story. I was reading Hound of the Baskervilles last summer and listening to the Variations at the same time. The book got so scary and the music was sooo scary sounding, that i put the book down and turned on all the lights in my room.

I thought variations 5 and 6 were a little spooky... perhaps it was in combination with the mysterious murder in the Hound of the Baskervilles that made it scary.
