Al Jabr – Will Sturman


So a while ago I wrote a filk song about a relatively unloved character in an obscure comic book, to the tune of the random folk song that was stuck in my head at the time, “The Lowlands of Holland.”  If you don’t know the song, it’s not relevant, but it’s a nice song.

…and then yesterday somebody left me alone in a recording studio.
Forgive my somewhat unsteady guitarring, and the fact that the scansion may or may not entirely hinge on a mispronunciation of one Arabic word.

Anyway, Al Jabr is the character sometimes referred to as “medieval Muslim Tony Stark,” this song is basically fanfic about what happens in the distant future when everyone on your superhero team but one is immortal.
