Did the lavender town theme ever freak you out as a kid?
I don't believe it ever did. I was watching X-Files to begin with anyway, so I probably didn't even bat an eye at the music.
Pokémon Tower's another story, though... at least the Marowak ghost anyway.
Not really. The Lavender Town theme has always sounded more sad than scary to me.

Sorry if we're not allowed to talk about this, but I have a feeling this is going to lead towards a Lavender Town Syndrome discussion.
Anyways, Lavender Town Syndrome is a rumor that anyone who listens to the Orignal Lavender Town music will commit suicide because they get the game taken away when they've become addicted to the song. It's kind of hard to explain, so you should probably google it.
On topic, though, I actually like the music very much. Not so in the 4th/3rd Gen remakes, but the GBC music from Crystal. I have no idea though how the music was from the 1st Gen.
No. Besides, there is volume control on the gameboy. Don't like it, turn it off.

I did, as a child, rush through the lavender town section of the game and turned down the volume when i was there. But when I got older I started to really like the place and just listen to its tune...
The most Superior Snivy. Left, good time here though. I loved this place.
I never played one but i think that the game are cool
73% of teenagers would cry if they saw Justin Bieber standing on top of a skyscraper about to jump. If you are the 27% sitting there with popcorn and 3D glasses, screaming "DO A BACKFLIP!", copy and paste this in your signature
It didn't creep me out or anything like that, but I admit, the theme's pretty sad and creepy at the same time. Sure I don't like it, but it kinda fits the place being home to a cemetery and all...
Hello. I am resceaching about ''Creepypastas'' and this is one of them.. this theme did not freak me out when i was a kid.. but it give me a headics.. because the ''theme'' was high pitched that caus headics. thats why there was a.. lets say.. huge trauma in japan, and also there is hidin message.. if you have right program you can see ''Ghost and Unknow's'' and they spell ''Leave now''.. there is hidin message that i dont understand yet.. was that the part that drives kid a nuts?
The "producer" of the game put a message in, that happened with 104 copies in the game: A message would come up, like: "Come, follow me, follow me, my wife, my children, all gone" and whatever, and most of the kids committed suicide, with either shoving their entire arms down their troats, or sticking their heads in an oven, or sawing off their limbs.
Of course, it's a creepypasta. Fake.
That's one version. I have heard that quite simply there was a tone in the original Japanese Red/Green composition that was at a high frequency that caused headaches among many Japanese children. It might have even been a case where it was high enough that older people couldn't hear it, it was so high. They removed that part of the music for the American versions however.
Thats the more realistic version of the "Lavender Town Syndrome" that I heard...
No. Songs never creep me out, like ever.

Yes it did. And I L-O-V-E-D it.
It used to be too high pitched for my liking, so I would always have the volume very low. As I got older, I would keep the volume where I have it for the other towns and cities of the game.

I've also read that the original song made japanese Children commit suicide, because of the high frequency of the song!!!
