Toccata and Fugue In D Minor
One of the most popular organ pieces ever composed is Toccata and Fugue In D Minor (BWV 565), traditionally ascribed to Johann Sebastian Bach, though some scholars disagree. This particular tune is often seen when a game calls for a more spooky mood due to the song's appearance in horror-related pop-culture.

King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne (DOS)
You'll hear Toccata and Fugue In D Minor upon entering Dracula's castle on the island in the center of the poisoned lake. Despite Dracula being a classic villain, he's disappointingly easy to vanquish in this game.
Both versions of the tune have been recorded, the 3 voice version and the PC speaker version.
