The insen scale (or forth mode of hirajoshi scale) is a beautiful scale with no third. I heard it first in Paul Gilbert's eudaimonia overture and learned it is a popular japanese scale.

What are some other scales, and songs that imply them, that are rather exotic and unusual that you know?

The Phrygian mode minus 2 notes.

I can't remember what it's called, but I heard it used on "March of the Slaves" (Can't remember the composer either, sorry =/) but it was a phrygian mode with a major 7th interval; meaning it had 3 notes chromatically in a row, but when used right it sounded awesome.

it's basically a minor scale without the fourth and seventh degrees.
that scale sounds spooky. *ghosts flying around*
#13
Seventh mode of harmonic minor, need I say more? Phrygian with a major third and major seventh doesn't sound bad either.

Byzantine scale. As oriental as it gets.

i love the whole tone and the scale where each note is 3 half steps up from the last, like E, G, Bb, Db. i think it's quadratonic.

also gotta love the half diminished (locrian #2) and the harmonic minor (aolean #7), and the octatonic.
