Having found this thread, I propose the following.

Duugvilder?
Or
Duugvilder!
Avers: My God, the Anals o Darrowshire is a pain in the ass when you have four chicks who need it.

I forgot about this thread. I'm going to put up a new batch imos. :O

Annalea, Al Stewart's Year of the Cat. The lyrics are ODDLY appropriate, especially:

But the drumbeat strains of the night remain
In the rhythm of the new-born day
You know sometime you're bound to leave her
But for now you're going to stay


Another Anna one? Counting Crow's Carriage.

Feliche, The Doves Caught by the River and Audioslave's The Last Remaining Light.

Roll me on your frozen fields
Break my bones to watch them heal
Drown me in your thirsty veins
Where I'll watch and I'll wait
And pray for the rain


((Another Feliche Song is THIS ONE but don't listen to it at work.))

Tiforis, The Coral's Dreaming of You and Counting Crow's All My Friends

Caught some grief from a falling leaf
As she tumbled down on to the dirty ground
And said I should have put her back there if I could
Well everyone needs a better day
And I'm trying to find me a better way
To get through the things I do and the things I should


Not all songs need lyrics. Like January Rain for ma Aely's.

Dravir, Del Amitri's Tell Her This

Jak, Mumford & Sons Sigh No More.

More later.
So if you meet me have some courtesy, have some sympathy and some taste. Use all your well-learned politesse or I'll lay your soul to waste.

AHAHAHAHAHAHA. So Tif and I were just talking, and maybe this should be another thread, but WFR the musical, which song would each Rider sing during their part?

You mean AWESOME.

Mostly because we decided Feliche would have to break out into My Shit's Fucked Up by Warren Zevon, and then we lol'ed.

No, I really mean scary. That doesn't preclude it being awesome.

Tirith could sing this: (okay, about half the guild could, it's pretty much the Riders Theme Song)

Professional
I keep my knives sharp
Dance around muscle groups like paper
Separate so neatly at the joint
Falls away easily if you follow my map
Embedded in each creature like dotted lines
And I trace these with my trusty knife

I fabricate
Destroy to create this

Is it wrong to be so callous?
Have I lost my human heart?
I can look one in the eyes and I see parts
Knives extend my reach in metal
I’m an artist in my right
Is it wrong or am I evil?
I just want to feed you.

I keep my knives sharp
Let the weight trace on these darting fingers
Manufactured to be torn apart
And I’m skillful in this occupation.

I can stand and argue virtue
With my elbows dripping red
Differentiate the living from the dead
Is it wrong to call them product
When we’re breathing the same air?
Is it vicious? Am I evil?
I just want to please you.

We all end up the same way
It all ends the same

For Bricu, I think the songs posted are spot on. I'm still going through my library, however I stumbled upon this gem:
Tarquin


Crime Don't Pay

Drinking, gambling and women
Stealin' hearts and playin' with guns
But the laws the law and baby that's a fact
And now I'm on the run

Chorus:
But this song ain't about none of the above
We're not punished for our sins, but "by them"
Thought I'd get myself a little passion play
But I can still hear them sayin'that crime don't pay

My poor heart is aching
It never did before
It seems my "indiscretion" served a "painful lesson"
And I'm still begging for more

Chorus:
I tried to mix romance with deceit
A little pleasure now with my pain
And I felt the loss on judgement day
And I can still hear them sayin'that crime don't pay!

Pour yourself a drink now
Make it a double and chase it with tears
But take heed my friends to this warning I give
Before you're faced with all your fears

Chorus:
I'd rather face ten men than have a broken heart
My crimes of passion have done me in
I'm sentenced to life each and every lonely day
And I can still hear you sayin'that crime don't pay!
I drink to keep you pretty

Rosilia

The Easy Way, Dar Williams
I knew a guy
I thought he was my first love
But he had to decide
Between me and the one before
And she stacked it all up
Like a house of cards
Said if he didn't come back
He'd find her flattened on the floor
And though I went and lived in my own hell
Thought that I could die as well
I let him go where he thought he had to go

'Cause I never took
Heavy words for granted
And I never took
Undeserved advantage
No I never took
The easy way
So why don't you take it a little easy on me now?

Out on the road
I had so many questions
I thought I would explode
Just for some attention
Like an acolyte
I saw the flames of towering tapers
Almost proselytized by those gleaming piles of paper
Yeah I watched the power huddles
And the coats draped over puddles
And trust me baby, I'm the one you need

But I never took
Heavy words for granted
And I never took
Undeserved advantage
No I never took
The easy way
So why don't you take it a little easy on me now?
[The Easy Way Lyrics On http://www.elyricsworld.com/ ]
Cause we all want to be the ones
Who lie, cheat, and slander
So we hold each other up to a higher standard
But I'll tell you what
I never try to make it hurt
Because when your heart
Just to be whole
The only thing that's hard is you

So here's what I took
I kept the wine and laughter
Until every pack
It just grew up and ever after
Through the peaks and twisty canyons
I made many great companions
Best of all is the one who loves me like you do

But I never took
Heavy words for granted
And I never took
Undeserved advantage
No I never took
The easy way
So why don't you take it a little easy on me now?

'Cause I never took
Heavy words for granted
And it's much too late
To even want a shortcut
Yeah I never took
The easy way
So you can take it a little easy now.
Because we know that easy is never easy anyhow.
I drink to keep you pretty

This one always makes me think of Tarquin.

Sin With A Grin by Shinedown

Take a good look at agony
Force fed pass down
Time release
I'm inspired to find the liar
Black list X on the back
Of a soulfull man
I've got way's you understand
Look left, look right, but I'm
Behind you
I never noticed, until I focused
On everything you did, you said,
You lit the fuse inside my head

[Chorus]
Thank you for reminding me
Of why I'm sick inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
Are there under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me,
To sin with a grin

Hangman
Standing on a twisted 2x4
Built your house, but forgot
To lock the door
I'm inside with two black eyes
I have not one shred of sympathy
I have no use for apologies
I'm inspired to find the liar
I never noticed, until I focused
On everything you did, you said,
You lit the fuse inside my head

[Chorus]
Thank you for reminding me
Of why I'm sick inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
Are there under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me,
To sin with a grin

Thank you for reminding me
Of why I'm sick inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
Are there under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me -

Of why I'm sick inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
Are there under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me,
To sin with a grin
