The Horror Honeys: Hardcover Thursday Jam ~ 'Sweet Ophelia'

Hardcover Thursday Jam ~ 'Sweet Ophelia'



Singing like it's a full moon
Careless now that he has you
Turns you on to the right songs
Promises that you're hooked on
Sweet Ophelia,
When young blood escapes
Vows that break
Go up, up away
When young blood escapes
Vows that break


The music of Zella Day was, for a long time, kind of just playing in the background while I was working on writing and ish. But then, one day, I stopped and actually listened to "Sweet Ophelia." My first reaction was, "Eesh. Is this song about a girl getting her period?." My second reaction was, "Holy shit, this is the best song ever." I don't think I've ever heard a song so accurately capture that simultaneously amazing and horrible time that a young girl experiences as she stumbles into womanhood. Add on to that the fact that this song is equally about Hamlet's doomed love, and you have yourself a song tailor-made for a Hardcover Honey Jam! ~RH
