I'm looking for any and all songs about murder and murderers.

I'm trying to build a Spotify playlist themed around murder. I have a pretty good start, but I need more suggestions. Any genre/style/era of music is fine. I do prefer songs that seem to tell a story, but if it's a really great song relating to murder that's not exactly a story, I'd still like to know about it.
Songs about self-murder (suicide) don't really fit my criteria unless they also contain a murder. So "Don't Fear The Reaper"
doesn't really fit, but "Wedding List" by Kate Bush
It's a plus if it's available on Spotify, but not absolutely necessary.
*If you want the link to this Spotify playlist, feel free to memail me. I figured linking to it would break the self-link rule.
**Disclaimer: I am interested in this purely from a musical/artistic/intellectual standpoint, not because I plan to murder or otherwise harm anyone. Today.
