This Monday I’m listening to A Rose for Emily by The Zombies and is based off of William Faulkner’s short story of the same name. The short story is a Southern Gothic horror centering on the old and unloved Emily whose death starts the story. The story then goes on to talk about Emily’s life with her abusive father and how strange Emily had gotten over the years, specifically after one of her suitors mysteriously disappeared.
A Rose for Emily is a very creepy story, The Zombies song is much more sad than creepy. The song focuses more on Emily’s loneliness than her strangeness, but it’s still a very good and catchy song.
