Well Known Graphic Designer Butcher Billy turns famous love songs into Stephen King Books and Movies

According to a majority of people, the internet is a sick and twisted place but genius still prevails. The latest example of such genius comes from World renowned graphic design Butcher Billy. This time he took all our favorite love songs from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s such as Hall and Oates’ “Maneater” to Joy Division’s “Love will Tear Us Apart” to Tears for Fears’ “Head over Heals” and converted them into Maine’s most popular novelist Stephen King’s books and movies. These books and movies do not exist; they are just graphic work of arts as the background for these works.

His explanation is quite simple:

“This series imagines an alternative universe in which some of the most hopeless, desperate and tragic heartbreak songs of the 70’s and 80’s were actually novels written by Stephen King. The concept is to look at the dark side of love through the lenses of pop culture, bringing twisted aspects of his classic stories to play with the original meanings of the songs = that can be completely subverted or strangely emphasized, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original book covers.”

To go the extra mile he even re-conceptualized a few of them as film adaptations. Check out the full gallery below and head over here to view them as they are made.
