Does the Shankill Butcher song give you chills?

It's soooooo spooky! OMG! I can't believe it was a lullaby based on a group of murderers.
I'm not offended by it, it just creeps me out!

  • Here I'll give you the link to the song. It's about the band of killers that ran around Ireland killing Catholics. Just crazy. The song just gives me chills.

  • I know! The fact that the story is true is what gives me chills! In Ireland they would sing this to keep the kids inside at night!

  • That's actually quite lovely. My favorite song done as a tribute to child killings is "Suffer Little Children" by Morrissey (from The Smiths...don't know if you're familiar with the artist). He grew up in England around the time when these killings took place and they affected him so profoundly that he wrote about this song many years later.Check out the link and tell me what you think-

    Sorry, I don't know why it won't let me create an actual link this morning.
