The Man Dressed in Brown – Eben Brooks

This song works so well I had to get @axonsandsynapses (my regular “has a better memory for music than me” contact) to confirm that it was actually a parody.  It’s based on a version of the Child ballad “The False Knight On The Road,” and it just…works.  Really well.  I love space folk songs.  Especially for Firefly.

Good Old Girl – Marian Call

Doin’ what they do, shepherding her through
Space will slow her stride, time will turn her tide
It’s far too much to take, but my girl don’t know when to break
So she’ll make she’ll make a way; she’s a good old girl, she’ll fly true

“Good Old Girl,” by Marian Call

Gotta love a song about spaceships.  I think this was specifically inspired by Firefly, but it’s pretty general in a way I really like.

Starlight & Dinosaurs – Brooke vs. John

SO I STARTED LISTENING TO THIS THINKING IT WAS A PARODY

I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE WRONG

I hope you cry ❤
