    this song, and from the same LP
    in which the protagonist mythologises himself as a sea dwelling creature
    unable to survive terrestrially.
    live recording on baritone ukulele.

    I've finally got round to creating a playlist. I realised last night I'd forgotten to set one up but I was too tired so I've left it till this morning.

    So far, I have added songs up to post #17 of the thread, Hendulele's Unicorn Song. I'll add more as I listen and comment. When I'm up to date, I'll post again.

    So this is maybe slightly left field. It's by Drenge, from their latest album Strange Creatures, released earlier this year. I finally got to see them while they were touring this album too, great show.

    Anyway this is a song cynically describing a prom when suddenly a supernatural/urban legend type event happens. Hope it fits.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    west country legend of the white hare, there are different forms of the story, but generally a witch or ghostly woman takes the form of a white hare, and goes out looking for prey at night. If you catch her eye she'll steal your soul away. this song of the story is by seth lakeman...

    an original song for the season.



    ICARUS

    If I had wings again I'd fly
    Not too low not too high
    Somewhere in between the sun and sea

    Where the birds they humbly glide
    Without complacency or pride
    All fledglings leave the nest to where they long to be

    The minotaur's safe in the cage
    But the King won't be appeased
    None of us can hide from the darkness deep within

    And to you, my knowing friend:
    If I could have my time again
    Surely I would heed my father's call
    Now who is there to catch me when I fall?

    Satan loved the mountain
    Just like I loved the sun
    The two of us burned up from the inside
    Consumed by pride

    I left my father in the clouds
    Refused to hear the trumpet call
    Now who is there to catch me when I fall?

    I thought I knew much better
    Separation is forever
    Now who is there to catch me when I fall?

    Mary Hamilton," or "The Fower Maries" ("The Four Marys"), is a common name for a
    well-known sixteenth-century ballad from Scotland based on an apparently fictional
    incident about a lady-in-waiting to a Queen of Scotland. It is Child Ballad 173 and Roud 79.
    In all versions of the song, Mary Hamilton is a personal attendant to the Queen of Scots,
    but precisely which queen is not specified. She becomes pregnant by the Queen's husband,
    the King of Scots, which results in the birth of a baby. Mary kills the infant – in some versions
    by casting it out to sea or drowning, and in others by exposure. The crime is seen and she
    is convicted. The ballad recounts Mary's thoughts about her life and her impending death
    in a first-person narrative.
    HyperBob says: Scottish steel and Irish fire, that's the weapon I desire
