The Horror Honeys: February Honey Jam - '9 Crimes'

February Honey Jam - '9 Crimes'

Twisted Love Songs Edition

Is that all right with you?
To give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that all right with you?
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it?

If there is one thing that Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan are good at, it is slow-building, semi-twisted love songs. While 'I Remember' is another song in the same vein worth checking out, '9 Crimes' from the album 9 is the kind of song that sounds like it's about love. But then you listen closer... And whether you choose to take it at face value or read it as an allegorical tune about adultery, this haunting track will stick with you long after it ends. Bonus points for the video being brilliantly eerie. ~RH
