Yeah, Filk!

For space is wide and good friends are too few



Send Him Home – Cat Faber

Reddit is doing something cool: inspired by Terry Pratchett’s depiction of how the names of the dead were sent home by clacks along the Grand Trunk Line on Discworld, they are working out ways to do the same for Sir Terry here in the real world.
And that inspired this song: Send Him Home.

A man’s not dead while his name is spoken
We will send him home
Down the line in a chain unbroken
We will send him home

   Send him home, send him home
Hear the shutters clack and comb
Down the line his name will roam
Send him home

(Full lyrics here.)

We Shall Wear Midnight – Araxie Haldane


I was really really sad about Terry Pratchett, so I sang the last song on Steeleye Span’s Wintersmith album (the one where Tiffany breaks the fourth wall and sings to her author).

Wintersmith Overture – Steeleye Span

If people didn’t know, Steeleye Span and Terry Pratchett collaborated on an album a couple years ago of what essentially amounts to Discworld filk with a really amazing pseudo-medieval/folk/rock vibe.

And it’s all on YouTube.
