I think the track filled with the most terror that I can think of is Curse Zone, from Symphony of the Night:

I was thinking of the same one.

And I'll admit, the password/start screen music on Simon's Quest scared the crap out of me as a kid.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

Curzed Zone,Rainbow Cemetary,Door of Holy Spririts,Heavenly Doorway,Curse of Darkness - Dracula's Castle,  could all make the list,but this one is definetly the creepiest to me:

Door to the Abyss:
Let's Listen: Castlevania SOTN - Door To The Abyss (Extended)

And though it has to be on the top ten for me in terms of disturbing/creepiest vg music. I haven't found one yet that takes the cake like Secret of Mana's Ceremony:
Disturbing Video Game Music 32: Ceremony

Pure creepieness at it's best!

Taking Edward Scissorhands to a whole new level!

That SoM music is Balinese Gamelan. My brother is really intrigued by that stuff. And that was such a fitting tune for that place, especially as the HQ of this crazed, life-force sucking cult.
By comparison, the fight with the boss sounds so different, almost like a rave.

And a few samples of Balinese Gamelan (and if I post one too many Jorge let me know!).

From the NES games Simon's Quest definitely had the 'spookiest' songs, with songs like Message of Darkness and Within These Castle Walls:

And that's one of the reasons it's one of the damned best boss themes in video game history. Hands down. SoM was my first taste of gamelan music, but not my last....

This still stands out as one of my favorite gamelan songs and only a sub-human could not like it:

Akira [Tr-4] Tetsuo

Anxiety made music. It really warns you that something bad will happen if you keep going.

I don't know about scary but Rainbow Cemetery always gives me an uneasy feeling (in a very good way :D).
