Hi,
I live in Cameron,Nc.My husband and three children moved here a little over 3 three years ago from Massachusetts.
Anyway, there are nights that theres this music that i can't discribe other then to say that its old and its almost like something you may hear on a long ago love story on a black and white movie.The thing is that its in the dead of night that it starts and when i have asked my husband if hes heard it he says no.I have gone outside and its comming from the woods,but theres no other houses that its comming from, and the direction its comming from is where a swamp is.It's very creepy out there at night it just feels so oppressive and sad.The music is sometimes it more up beat but it always keep me awake when it starts,and goes on for hours.The dogs have even howled sometimes through the sound of it.
I was just wondering if anyone out there had experienced this or something like it and may know what,or why this is.Any thoughts would be wonderful.Thanks...

Hi Shadow Dancer & welcome! This sounds very eery...is there any way you can try to record this? A camcorder would be great...so you could maybe show your husband (we'd like to see it too!!). There are many, many folks here that can help you with this. Do you by any chance know any history of the area? You could either ask around, go to the local library or museum. I can't wait to hear if you've found anything out on this place...very creepy! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. :Spaz:

I havent yet found out much about the place.I have had experiences with supernatural encounters before.But this is unique in regards to the music.
I have talked to a few locals and they don't believe they have heard of anything odd in this area.
I do have pics i took outside and you can see Orbs.Also some taken inside at Christmas time there are certain pics in my kitchen and livingroom that has more then one orb.They are white and if you'd like i can show them to you.
My husband wanted to burn a cd of photos,so he asked me to name the pictures,it was just this morning i realized that certain pictures have the orbs while others don't.Thats what propmted me to join and post.
I know what i am hearing is real,and would love to try to record it with maybe evp,but i don't know much about that really.
Thank for welcoming me...and i hope i have alot i can share.

Welcome to GV, shadowdancer! ;)

This is very intriguing, indeed. I, personally, have not had this happen, but I wonder if this is paranormal if it is a residual haunting? Another related issue that it might be is akin to the ďsmell of perfume/cigar smoke/etc.Ē that some people experience with the paranormal. In your case, though, instead of being a smell it is a sound.

A few quick questions:

- Does it occur at a specific time of night Ė meaning, the exact same time every time you hear it?
- Is it always the same part of the song or the song in itís entirety?

Just a few mundane possibilities running through my head: I wonder about the swamp. I know of swamp gases producing lights that are often referred to as paranormal, but arenít (canít remember the exact term Ė will-oí-the-wisps?). I have never heard of it producing sounds, much less a specific melody, though. But, perhaps, someone else would know more about that possibility if there is one. Also, I know how well sounds can travel through the right environment. Sounds travel very well over water (swamps included). I have been in the woods, etc. and heard voices as though they were right next to me, but come to find out the voices traveled from a house far away. Itís really amazing the way sound can travel in the right environment. This is why I asked if there was a specific time this occurs and if it is always the same part of the song. If yes on both counts, there, I would say it is most likely not from a human source traveling a long distance.

Too, it is interesting your husband doesnít hear this which is another factor leading me to believe this may very well be paranormal. If you and your husband are standing side-by-side when you hear this music and only you hear it, I would consider that pretty much discrediting any environmental cause, considering hubby has good hearing. :hug:

Dogs have good ears and are very sensitive to the paranormal Ė as are most animals. Itís good to know that at least your fur babies hear it, too, whether it is or is not paranormal. :)

If this song could be identified, you might just have the key to finding out whatís going on. So, if you can somehow get it recorded and post it, here, I would think someone would be able to identify that for you. Any pictures you have, too, will help.

Iím leaning towards paranormal with this one. The only thing sticking in my head as being a non-paranormal cause would be the sound traveling over land/water.

;)

(A few quick questions:

- Does it occur at a specific time of night – meaning, the exact same time every time you hear it?
- Is it always the same part of the song or the song in it’s entirety?)

It always occurs after 11:00 pm and its either the entire song or sometimes starts in the middle and goes through...
When its started halfway through it usually plays all night long.The thing that seems to vary is how far away it sounds.
I have laid awake many nights trying to come up with the name of the song but it really escapes me,and as far as when the occassion of the music is more upbeat.That has happened about three to four times in these three years.So i don't know what is different about those nights.The songs are always the same two though.
The time intervale between when i hear the music and the next time i'll hear it is unknown at this point.Sometimes i'll hear it night after night,other times its every few weeks.The last time i heard it was Oct
14th.

Hi shadowdancer,

Thank you for answering my questions. :( Youíve certainly kept tabs on this which is very helpful in trying to discern its nature.

Itís the same song, itís either just played at a ďnormalĒ beat or, sometimes, at a faster beat, correct? This certainly sounds strange and the more you tell about its nature the more it doesnít sound mundane. I suppose, it could be someone playing that song, but itís really strange that it:

- would be more upbeat at some times than others.
- would begin in the middle of the song rather than the beginning.
- would play through the night on some specific occasions, unless itís on repeat for some reason. But, then I wonder why itís not set on repeat most nights, not just occasionally.
- seems to only be heard by you and your pets.
- is an older melody in itself. Now, more modern music, I would consider more likely to be of a mundane cause, but there arenít too many people around who regularly listen to the older melodies - and, one specific melody at that.
- Etc. Etc.

Although, any of these could certainly be caused by mundane circumstances, all of them added together with all the other strange factors donít add up in my mind given what I know so far.

Paranormally speaking, this could be a spirit trying to contact you or anyone around who is particularly sensitive to the paranormal. It might be a residual haunting, of sorts (the same episode being replayed over and over). There are a lot of possibilities, there.

There are a few people on this website (myself included) who love older music and movies. If you are ever able to get the music on tape or video...one of us might just be able to recognize this song for you. You seem to recognize this melody, but canít remember the title. I have that happen, myself, frequently. There were many popular songs of that time that were redone again and again by different bands (sometimes, the same bands would do varying recordings of the same song, as well). This might be adding to the confusion. Or, you may have heard it once and itís still haunting your memory. Still, perhaps, you've never heard this song before, but you are receiving a transference, of sorts, of emotions through the song from whatever paranormal rhelm this may be coming from. If this is paranormal and we can trace the song and perhaps even the date of the recording, you might be able to find some answers/meaning that way. That might help you if you did some research into this through older newspapers, etc.

This is certainly very strange and very intriguing.

Keep us posted on this. Any information you can get will be helpful to figuring this out. In the meantime, hopefully others will chime in with their ideas.

:D

what a lovely photograph! it looks very peacful there. i can see other orbs which would probably be dust or pollen ect. But the little blue orb down next to the number 12 is really strange, it reminds me of the little coloured balls of light i used to see in my room when i was little.
it sounds very creepy about the music though! im interested in what else will occur here! keep us informed. oh! and welcome to ghost village! :weeee:



oops! i dont know how i managed to do a double post thingy! :ghost:

Hi shadowdancer. Have you tried keeping a journal on when you hear the music (to steal an idea from Laurie Ann to another on the forum). Include things like the date and time you hear th music, weather conditions, how you are feeling that day, any significant items in the news, etc. Who knows what the music might be connected to. You may not be able to see a pattern now, but by journalind these experiences, a pattern might become more recognizable. Maybe you have a band of Ghost Gypsies out in the swamp?

Yesterday morning i had a rather disturbing experience.I had written to a wonderful,knowledgeable lady i met here about the experience and she suggested i should add it to my post.To get ideas or advice.
So, heres what happened.I had been on my computer working on some research for my home school lessons with my children,when my back door opened by its-self at 9:07 am.My dog who is housed in the back yard and in a pen,was barking and three of my cats sat in front of the door and stared at the door.
I closed the door looking out and seeing nothing.The feeling i got was a heavy feeling in my chest and
i panicked.I just had to get away from the door.
I had to get myself pulled together because i knew my children would be comming home from a night at their grandmothers soon.
I felt the presents in the house at the time i wrote the email and for quite some time afterwards.
Theres times when i have felt presents here that were sad or some even peaceful.This was neither.This really panicked me.


Until the beginnning of this week i had only kept a mental log of events like the music and its times and tempo.But now that i have noticed the pictures and recorded in a diary trying to peice things together, it seems i have caused a disturbance of sorts.
My spirit has become restless to solve this and know what is happening.
If any one has suggestions please,i'm all ears.
Thank,
Shadowdancer
