Re: Original Lavender Town Music
I heard it also has weird effects on on animals, like dogs doing backflips, since they have a higher range of hearing than we do. I tested this out with my hamster and my copy of Blue in English that I was actually working on. Hey, my DS is broken, so I was alternating between playing freshly-restarted files on Crystal, Ruby and Blue. Anyway, since hamsters are nocturnal, I waited until midnight to do this experiment. I video-recorded it on my Android cell phone. While in the route below Lavender, she was playing normally. Then, when I walked in, she stood still. When it got to the "tone" bit, she turned towards me a little and perked her ears up more. She stood still for a full two minutes until I returned to a normal route. Then, she turned around, and napped in a corner that wasn't her bed. Strange. After about ten minutes (off-camera), she woke up and acted like a normal hamster. Weird.
If you think the binaural tones in Lavender are bad, listen to binaural beats raw on YouTube. I read that this was "relaxing" so I looked it up. Withing a second, I unplugged the computer immediately. It was scary. When I would turn my head after that, I would hear a freaky electronic-bell sounding noise. I was so scared. I'm never looking that poop up again.
Lavender Town doesn't bother me. I've never heard any reports about this, but when I watched the playthrough of Pokemon: Lost Silver on YouTube, the sound effects of the Pikachu battle hurt my head BAD. Not like the binaural beats... I encourage you to watch Lost Silver if you haven't already and tell me what you think. However, I advise that you DO NOT look up binaural beats. That was a scary trip. If that was in the Lavender Town song for real, I wouldn't be surprised that kids would kill themselves over it. The noise is just pulsing, and it feels like your brain swells. Don't look it up. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Speaking of creepypasta, anyone read Squidward's Suicide? Aah...
