The Horror Honeys: Hardcover Tuesday Jam - 'Rebecca'

Hardcover Tuesday Jam - 'Rebecca'

Max, you're so distraught.
Perhaps, I'll help you out.
Your wife was so much more than me,
But I can be her now.
I can be her now...

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again...

If those words don't mean anything to you, then maybe this will?

I try and recommend sister act Meg & Dia Frampton to anyone who is a lover of literature, because so many of their songs are actually based on classics works of fiction. While several of their songs manage to bring the creepy, none stirs my little black heart strings more than Rebecca. The song is written from the viewpoint of the unnamed heroine of Daphne du Maurier's novel, and it actually sounds like a sweet love story... that is unless you know the true story of the titular Rebecca.

If you aren't one for reading (shame face on you), then you can also get the story from Alfred Hitchcock's Academy Award-winning film adaptation of Rebecca, which had to change the story slightly due to the production code but is still a mastery of haunting cinema.

In the meantime, listen to this week's Honey Jam from Meg & Dia and let yourself get lost in the story, darklings! ~RH
