This is a fairly informal -and maybe speculative- question, but I was recently browsing Youtube, when I happened upon the Spongebob Squarepants Outro. Quickly overcome with nostalgia, I clicked on the video and listened to the song, but when I looked at the comments on the video, countless people were writing about how the song creepes them out. Personally, I thought that the song seemed like the ending song to a melancholy movie, but that's just me.
I was thinking about it more, when I rembered another song that I had listened to a while ago called, Two Weeks, by Grizzly Bear. In the comments section for that video, someone had written that the song was "eerie" and, as a reply to the comment, another user said that that was attributed to the music being played in the Lydian mode.
Is there a "mode," which the above Spongebob song was played in that can generally be attributed to people finding it creepy?
If so, is there a range or some way that "modes" are related that makes people generally find them creepy, happy, sad, etc...?
