One of Us – Heather Dale

‘Cause she was not the biggest fighter nor one to raise a fuss
But I remember being proud that she was one of us
And we might never stand together in the shield-wall side by side
But because of her I lift my sword with pride

So Heather Dale recently put out a children’s album, which is basically a “my first filk” compilation, and this song seems to be here to encourage little girls to join the SCA and beat the crap out of people.
…needless to say, I approve

Freedom of the Snow – Leslie Fish

Cancel my salvation, give me leave to go
Back to the freedom of the snow

A Leslie Fish song about finding strength in the (temporary) absence of civilization, because the blogger behind the curtain is still desperate Mad Max trash.
And there’s a very nice flute part.

Fake Geek Guy – Kari Maaren

“Fake Geek Guy,” by Kari Maaren
This song was tangentially inspired by The Doubleclicks’ “Nothing to Prove,” but “to be absolutely frank, the Doubleclicks’ song is a moving autobiographical anthem, while mine is just kind of mean.”
It’s mean in a good way, though, and, as Kari says, more songs ought to name-drop Gail Simone.
The lyrics and chords can be found in the FilKONtario 24 songbook



For we will be wicked and we will be fair
And they'll call us such names, and we really won't care,
So go, tell your Wendys, your Susans, your Janes,
There's a place they can go if they're tired of chains,
And our roads may be golden, or broken, or lost,
But we'll walk on them willingly, knowing the cost -
We won't take our place on the shelves.
It's better to fly and it's better to die
Say the wicked girls saving ourselves.

Pageant Legend (Morgan Le Fay)

Pageant Legend, by Katy Dröge-Macdonald and Juliane Honisch
Fun fact: one of the writers (I think it was Katy) originally wanted to call this song “Fuck Arthur” but was told she couldn’t do that.  So she called it “Pageant Legend,” but nobody remembers that name, so everyone calls it The Morgan Le Fay Song.
And it’s on myspace.  How quaint.
