Hi. What's the most haunting, ethereal, or just plain unsettling use of major chords you have heard in a song?

Some dissonant chords are quite peculiar and ethereal.

of major chords

hmmmm...I love the dom7 chord in the song I'm So Tired by the Beatles. It's a dom7 built off the seventh degree.

A G#7 D E

It falls right on the word "tired" and it feels like such a tired chord.

Pink Floyd were also really good at creating a haunting ethereal sound. I've been playing the song Nobody Home from the Wall album recently.

I'm a huge fan of diminished 7th and minor 7th b5 chords.
And anything with an interval of a minor second in it.

^the ending to that solo is very cool. not sure what that was. Whole tone scale came to mind. That can sound really rad to, on the topic of this thread.

Off the top of my head...any maj7#11, maj7b5, 7#9 chords can be pretty haunting and ethereal in the right context.
