Mermaid's Cove Music Hop

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Ahoy, me darlin', ye've found a jolly round of songs for swashbucklers.

Music is a strong theme in Random Magic -- so strong, in fact, that one of the celestial characters Winnie and Henry meet is Efterpe, the Muse of music.

So, for the love of music (and pirates), here’s a fun music hop to check out, featuring all kinds of delicious tunes piratical. Start anywhere you like -- for each blog stop, you’ll be able to enjoy a merry tune, then just sail off to the next port for another round. Hoist the mizzen and away we go!

Pieces of Eight – Captain Bogg & Salty
Songs for: Jovial pirates

Pieces of eight
from the captain's chest
divided among the crew
Pieces of eight
hidden away
in a sock stuck under your shoe

Pieces of eight
to buy you some rum
wherever grog is sold
Pieces of eight
to replace your teeth
with ones made out of gold

Pieces of eight, pieces of eight 

Pieces of eight!

Random Magic quote of the piratey persuasion:

Well. Might as well finish it. Someone had taken the time to hide it, whatever it was. The candle spit at her, guttering down to the last nub. She yanked back with her wrist, tugging the canvas slowly out of its hiding place on the end of the knife. It dropped onto the boards next to her with a muffled metallic tkkk. Coins. She dug the rest of the blade through the canvas, enough to tear a small gash in the makeshift pouch. A gleam of yellow winked out at her. Gold. (More)
