Nick Cave's Dead Man in my Bed, or perhaps even Stone Temple Pilot's Dead and Bloated :-)
There must be so many songs for this!
It takes all sorts to make a world and some on the fringes of life often turn up on daytime TV. And so El Reg was fascinated by the story of Amethyst Realm, who dumped a human in the, er, physical realm to become a ghostbuster banger. Realm, a 27-year-old spiritual guidance consultant, told her tale of the lucky stiffs to …
Genesis - Dancing with the moonlit knight
Genesis - Unquiet slumbers for the sleepers
Iluvatar - The final stroke
IQ - The other side
Japan - Ghosts
Kaipa - Screwed-upness
Marillion - Out of this world
Pink Floyd - The great gig in the sky
Pink Floyd - In the flesh?
The Specials - Ghost Town
Steve Hackett - Spectral mornings
Steve Hackett - In another life
Steve Hackett - The ballad of the decomposing
(Steve's always good for an odd song-title. His music was described by my wife as "lots of notes in the wrong places"..)
Steve Hackett - Love song for a vampire
Unitopia - Suffocation
Unitopia - Not human any more
(Observant readers may notice a slight prog tinge to my choices..)

I suspect Jacques Vallée would have something to say about this.
In the Age of Confusion and "Hypernormalization" where we find, among others: Fake News, Trump Tweets, Hillary Reality Constructions, Tortured Oligarchs in Freedom-Loving Saudi Arabia, cheap Russian Threats sheeple management, aggressive BLM moaning for more gimmedats, May Flower Brexit with a side dish of frank fascism à la Amber Rudd, Bitcoin Bubbles and now finally the arrival of Jerusalem in the mythical birthplace of $ETHNICITY, the old-fashioned encounters with "aliens", -- which I hope we may agree have been entirely on the spiritual plane because real aliens are nowhere to be found nor likely to be found -- might well morph into "close encounters of the fourth kind" entirely, i.e. interaction with GHOSTS!
