Bushwick Song of the Week: Monster by Don Hopwood | inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” is one of my favorite books of all time. Getting the opportunity to write and perform a song inspired by this book was a lot of fun. I wrote it from the perspective of my favorite character, the monster. A creature created hideous and grotesque on the outside, yet kind and innocent on the inside. The story of how the wretch truly became a monster is a heartbreaking tale.

Rather than focusing on the crimes that the monster committed, my song’s inspiration comes from the crimes it suffered.
