The Horror Honeys: Murder Monday Jam - 'Patrick Bateman'

Murder Monday Jam - 'Patrick Bateman'

I touched your lips but now I just paint
Surface reflection all I desired babe
I am melancholy, flower cutting through stone
I'm a crime everybody has at home
Papers hate me but they need my behaviour
The dignity amongst Hollywood trivia
Escape is so cheap of alcohol and whores
Mine's the sanity of exclusive gun laws

Oh, Patrick Bateman. Is there any serial killer from literature or film more prolific, more charming, more terrifying, or more confounding than this personification of 80s greed? It's not really surprising that cult-favorite Welsh band Manic Street Preachers decided to make him the subject of one of their alt-rock B-sides! Would Patrick listen to this song while nude and murdering someone? It's hard to say. But have a listen to tonight's Honey Jam and decide for yourself! ~RH
