    This song is so old that the lyrics are part of folk legend... so I thought it fit the bill.

    I love a good Disney song but don't usually go in for the big princess ballad though. This one is different though.

    "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"

    An Estonian song about animals having a feast - "Mutionu pidu" (Uncle Mole's Party, 1926 / 1931) by Alide Dahlberg and August Kiiss. The original, mostly forgotten lyrics had 18 verses, which described how the animals drank too much beer, had a fight and "the Magpie lost his tail and the Moose is still limping..." But luckily, here is a well-known version with only 6 verses.

    My second submission this week is another Irish Legend. This time involving the adult Finn McCool. It purportedly explains the existence of the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland... in legendary terms.

    On the Scottish end of the projected causeway, there is a similar series of basalt blocks. Ancient Irish and Scots peoples decided it must one day have been a causeway built by giants.

    Note: the name of the baby in the story is Irish for "Invincible".

    Hope you enjoy:

    The story of Tam Lin is known to have been around in the mid-1500s. I know it from the Fairport Convention version, back when Sandy Denny was the singer and Richard Thompson was the lead guitarist.

    Hey gang. Long time, no see.

    I am heavily and liberally applying the Thorton Rule this week, as I just wanted to get something down, it has been so long.

    I picked Agnus Dei and, I have been reliably informed that God is a sky wizard....and so any religious songs count as fairy tales to at least some people, my personal opinion aside.

    Anyway, here is a song.

    Kanile'a K-1 Tenor (Kamaka strings)
    Pono ABD, Acacia Deluxe Baritone (Living Water high D strings)
