Planetfall – Araxie Haldane & Nana Graye

scribefindegil:

Another space filk with a bit of a stealth TAZ flavor. My words to a traditional tune, sung by me and @howtotrainyournana

Lyrics:

Oh planetfall, I long to reach you
Away, across the cosmos
Oh planetfall, I long to reach you
Away, we’re bound away
Chasing hope and starlight.

The darkness comes, but we keep flying
Away, across the cosmos
The darkness comes, but we keep flying
Away, we’re bound away
Chasing hope and starlight.

Our world is gone, there’s no returning
Away, across the cosmos
Our world is gone, there’s no returning
Away, we’re bound away
Chasing hope and starlight.

But we will build a home together
Away, across the cosmos
But we will build a home together
Away, we’re bound away
Chasing hope and starlight.

Voidfish Lullaby – Love Patrol Beta

scribefindegil:

In-universe taz filk song from Chapter One of my fic “Songs From The Void

Tune: Traditional (Lavender’s Blue)

Lyrics:

Stars are above, dilly dilly, worlds are below
What we will find, dilly dilly, no one can know
But I know this, dilly dilly, every world round
I will make sure, dilly dilly, you’re safe and sound.

Home is behind, dilly dilly, far far away
What is ahead, dilly dilly, no one can say
Though you are lost, dilly dilly, you’re not alone.
I’ll keep you safe, dilly dilly. I’ll be your home.

Hush now and sleep, dilly dilly, no need to fear
When the day breaks, dilly dilly, I’ll still be near
Worlds are below, dilly dilly, stars are above
And we are here, dilly dilly, shining with love.

Back Soon (Ukulele) – Jack Larus

thedeadfairy:

(Soundcloud)

Spoilers for The Adventure Zone, up to episode 67!

I debated posting this here vs. waiting until I finished the full version but I’m trying to ride the wave of being psyched about actually writing something so here’s an acoustic version with just my voice, a ukulele, and words.

So many incredible moments in this episode. I got chills at basically every turn.

Lyrics under the cut!

Filksong Genealogy: Bashing the Balrog

(Series: Filksong Genealogy)

Firstly, above: Leslie Fish’s setting of Rudyard Kipling’s poem “Dane-Geld,” about the dubious wisdom of paying tribute to avoid being conquered by a neighboring country with less portable wealth but better armies.

Secondly, as previously seen on this blog, a classic filksong to the tune of “Waltzing Matilda”: Lee Gold’s “You Bash the Balrog,” a cheerful little ditty about an ill-fated set of D&D adventurers.  (If you’ve never heard “Waltzing Matilda,” have a listen here and maybe check out the wikipedia page.)

And finally, below: Bob Kanefsky’s synthesis “Bashing the Balrog,” performed by Leslie Fish.

Critical Hit – Ghost Mice

midi-fighter:

the biggest baddest beasts have easily been beat with one lucky shot.
dragons have fell and kingdoms have been saved
by people giving everything they’ve got,
by people who never gave up.
by people who know just to let the dice roll and see what comes up.
no we should never ever give up!

The FuMP: Munchkins by Beth Kinderman & the Player Characters

And we’ll never be munchkins (munchkins)
It’s the story we want
Fight after fight, too much the same
We crave a different kind of game

I got to meet Beth Kinderman at Marscon last weekend, and when I mentioned it @sci-fantasy recommended this song, and…I strongly relate.  

Lyrics and lead vocals by Beth Kinderman, Justin Hartley on drums, Dave Stagner did synthesizer and production, and Nikki Walker is the backup singer.  Tune is “Royals,” by Lorde.

Let Me Go – Hannah M.

phemiec:

New song. And not TF2 filk this time! …Instead it’s Dragon Age II filk. Big difference. You can still enjoy it if you don’t play the game though.

I’m sorry, but Isabella is just too much of a BAMF to not have a song full of sexy sailing double entendres written about her.

Lyrics:

Give me a deep blue ocean

And an open sky

The fickle kiss of lady-luck

and forget father time

Give me a challenge

give me a ‘x’ to find

I will spend my days in salty sprays

of every kind

And if you want me then you’d better be a pirate

You have this look, I’m hooked, I’m pretty sure I like it

But I won’t be here forever

I’m a storm that can’t be weathered

A ship to which no port is tethered and

you’ll never have better

So let me go

I’ll come back running, if the sea says so

Let me go

And you’ll see me running to the sea shells, oh.

Be my first mate

Oh I can’t wait for you to let me go

Nananananananananana…

Give me a laugh, lover

Give me a good tease

I’m more impressed by cleverness

than morality

So find a me a ship in a bottle

or a bottle of any kind

I will spend my days in wild ways

Until I go blind

And if you want me then you better be a scoundrel

I’ve got no time for little dogs that run around going

faster just to chase me

I prefer the other way, see

I like a little play

But at the end of the day you’ll have to

Let me go

I’ll come back running, if the sea says so

Let me go

And you’ll see me running to the sea shells, oh.

Be my first mate

oh, I can’t wait

for you to get with me

Maybe I’m shallow

But I’m not empty

I’m easy to catch, not to easy to keep

But I could drown in your eyes

They’re so and blue and deep

And I’m off to discover a land like no other

Your hand’s on my wheel, in command of your rudder

Love is a tempest, it’s wild but it passes

Love me like the ocean, endless and vast

Let me go…

Let me go…

Wanderer (Hymn to Fen’Harel) – Will Sturman

dog-of-ulthar:

So a while ago I thought “I should write a song about Dragon Age, totally from scratch.”  And a little voice at the back of my mind said “write about Solas” and made this face

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I’m calling this a hymn, but in truth I could just as easily call it “Solas, your head is so far up your ass Varric’s calling it a Deep Roads expedition, please stop.”

A Night to Remember Lullaby – Witcher 3

kokozrika:

Wolves are sleeping ‘midst the trees,
Bats all are swaying in the breeze,
But one soul lies anxious wide awake,
Fearing all manner of ghouls, hags and wraiths.

Birds are silent for the night,
Cows turn in as daylight dies,
But one soul lies anxious wide awake,
For the witcher, brave and bold, paid in coin of gold,
He’ll chop and slice you, gut and dice you, eat you up whole,
Eat you whole.

 

The Girl in Red Crossing – Ingrid Windsland

ingridbeast:

Cosplaying Maryden Halewell (the tavern bard from Dragon Age Inquisition) makes me want to sing ALL the songs, but some of them don’t have melodies, which means I have to make melodies for them myself. 😉

This one is The Girl in Red Crossing. Hope you like it! ^_^
