The March of Cambreadth – Heather Alexander

(Am)Axes flash, (G)broadsword (Am)swing,

(Am)Shining (G)armour’s (F)piercing (Am)ring
Horses run with (G)polished (Am)shield,
Fight those bastards (G)till they (Am)yield
Midnight mare and (G)blood red roan,
(Am)Fight to (G)keep this (F)land your (Am)own
Sound the horn and (G)call the cry,
(Am)How many of (G)them can (F)we make (Am)die!

The Hanging Tree – The Hunger Games

cyrusandthegirlonfire:

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where the dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run,
So we’d both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope,
Side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run,
So we’d both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where the dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight
In the hanging tree.

They’re Made Out of Meat – Kathleen Sloan

“Meat,” by Kathleen Sloan, based on the short story by the same name by Terry Bisson, performed by Kathleen Sloan and somebody whose name I don’t know who has been identified as probably Paul Kwinn by vagabondviolet at the 2014 Pegasus Awards concert, with sign language interpretation by Judi Miller.

Added to the Music Masterlist

Tons of you have been helping build up the Masterlist of Songs Inspired by Tolkien – thank you so much to everyone who’s sent in links to new songs! I’ve still got lots more to add (including all of The Tolkien Ensemble, yikes), but here’s the songs that were recently added:

Remember, if you’ve got more to add, please let me know – and include a link with your suggestion!!! (otherwise it will not be added)

Likely of interest to my followers!

And mine, though they’re probably more or less the same people.

Pretty in Scarlet – Murder Ballads

theactualcluegirl:

So guess what’s available for purchase today!
Go on, guess!
(Have you guessed yet? No? Okay, I’ll tell you.)

It’s that album I’ve been banging on about for like a damned year now, is what! It’s available for download on Bandcamp as of this morning, and that means that if you want to stream the whole thing before you pay a cent for it, you totally can.

Obviously, we’re hoping you like it enough to pay for it, but hey, at least this way you know what you’ll be getting. (Among other things, your own copy of The Ballad of Captain America’s Disapproving Face, which a few people have mentioned wanting…)

So here it is! Go have a listen, and if you like what you hear, please shill the site — we’ve put a lot of work into this one, we’re proud of it, and we really want to share it with the world.

Listen/purchase: Pretty in Scarlet by Murder Ballads

Check it out, nerdy music lovers!

David Kassover

A grazing mace, how sweet the sound, that felled my foe for me
I bashed his head, he struck the ground, and thus came victory

My mace has taught my foes to fear, that mace my fear relieved
How precious did my mace appear, when I my mace received

Through many tourneys wars and fairs, I have already come
My mace has brought me safe thus far, my mace will bring me home

The King has promised good to me, his word my hope secures
I will his shield and weapon be, when he gives me my spurs

And when my mace my foeman nails, that mortal strife shall cease
And we’ll possess within our pale, a life of joy and peace

A grazing mace, how sweet the sound that flattened a wretch like thee!
whose head is flat, that once was round done in by my mace….and me!

The New 52 Song – axonsandsynapses

axonsandsynapses:

To be sung to the tune of The M.T.A. Song

Let me tell you the story of a Batgirl named Steph’nie
And the editors of ol’ DC
They ended her adventures, they cancelled her series
For Cataclysmic Crisis Part 3

Well, did she ever return?
No she never returned
And her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Cassandra was fast and Cassandra was bright
She made Batgirl her very own
But then the Flash exploded the universe (again)
And our beloved Cassandra is gone

‘Cause did she ever return?
No she never returned
And her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Green Arrow – Ollie Queen- he had a son
His name was Connor Hawke
He took his father’s mantle, he did it proud
But the editors, they forgot

And did he ever return?
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
He’s the hero who never returned

Well Speedy, he grew up, his sidekick days behind him
And then Mia fought her way on scene
She learned to wield that bow, she owned that title
Made “Team Arrow” truly a team

But did she ever return?
No, she never returned
And her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Now Wally West, he was the Flash’s sidekick
Was in the Titans from day number one
Loved as a kid, loved more as a hero
But they decided his days were done

‘Cause did he ever return?
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
He’s the hero who never returned

Donna Troy, well her past is tricky
And on her story nobody agrees
But she still shone bright as the first Girl Wonder
But it wasn’t enough for ol’ DC

And she never returned
No she never returned
Her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Oh no they never returned
No they never returned
And their fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
They’re the heroes that never returned

Note: Yes, I’m aware that Steph is currently making her reappearance in Batman Eternal. She was just the easiest character to begin with.

Also, I’m aware that I’m missing characters. Feel free to add verses if you so desire.
