No wonder I could never find his cover of Reckless.
(Although for the record his Wuthering Heights is far superior…)
It’s Meeeeee!! Floppyyyyyyyyy!!!!
Think about it. You’ve got the perfect Dark Lord in the form of Heathcliff, torturing his household and tormented by his memories of Catherine. Catherine would actually be a ghost, tapping on the windows at night and increasing Heathcliff’s torment. The Domain would consist of the bleak, high moors, with a few scattered houses and a single village, and the borders would be sealed when necessary by raging sleet and hail storms.
It’s such a natural fit that its lack boggles the mind. Were there no English Majors at TSR?
While on the subject of Wuthering Heights, I don’t believe that it’s possible for any human being to sing as high as Kate Bush does in the first few bars of her song based on the book. Her pitch is either a post-recording effect, or she is some kind of alien masquerading as a human being.
(I know where I’m putting my money… :D)
Oh, can I also mention Kate Beaton’s brilliant take on the book?
Actually I’m fairly certain it’s not…
Note to self. As great as such a lyric would be, Hounds of Love by Kate Bush does not actually feature the line “I found a box that was powered by dogs”.
(Hey, it’s 39 degrees outside, I can be as stupid as I want 🙂
