"Stephen King's Stranger Love Songs" is a new series from Brazilian artist Butcher Billy that reimagines popular love songs from the 1970s and 1980s as if they were horror books written by the popular author. The vintage book covers pay tribute to such songs as The Smith's "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" and Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart."
Surprisingly the love songs from those two decades lend themselves well to the horror fiction genre. Lionel Richie's "Hello" is much more sinister when you imagine the words coming from a killer clown. While Butcher Billy's "Stephen King's Stranger Love Songs" aren't actual books, the art from the covers can be purchased as prints or on t-shirts.
