Musical themes, visual themes... anything siege-related thread

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14qTXRkAKr8 this song, for me, keeps recurring.

Anything tickling anyone else's mental fancy regarding the siege? Since it's a sort of all-consuming RP event at present.

To get into the frame of mind of both attackers and defenders, during siege planning I've been listening to quite a bit of Celtic punk, particularly The Tossers. Their cover of 'Johnny I Hardley Knew Ye,' 'The Pogues version of 'A Pair of Brown Eyes' and 'Young Ned of the Hill,' as well as the Young Dubliners' 'Foggy Dew' and Silly Wizards' 'Donald McGillavery' are all also helpful songs.

A song recently heard playing through Void forces rather loudly. It's grown very popular in the last week or so, and current events are keeping the lyrics updated.

(To the tune of: "Follow Me up to Carlow")

Follow Us Up to Seron

Get up!

Lift up to the gray, your face; No more brooding o'er old disgrace
Long time since CoRe stormed your place, drove you to the Void
And Paixi says victory's assured; soon the Space Lord she'll secure;
Until she meets on Seron's yard, with the Glacier and his Shard

Curse and swear, oh at us glare; Glacier will do what Reven will dare
Now Marshals, have a care; fallen are your stars, low.
Up with gray and out with sword; on we'll go for by our lord
Glacier and Shard have given the word; follow us up to Seron!

From Tira's shores to Miranda's Row, watch how our victories flow
Oh, great is Raven Right-Hand, at killin' upstart gods
Derrison's sick and Pryde is dead, now we go for Paixi's fair head
We'll send it over, dripping red, when we've beaten all their odds

Curse and swear, oh at us glare; Glacier will do what Reven will dare
Now Marshals, have a care; fallen are your stars, low.
Up with grey and out with sword; on we'll go for by our lord
Glacier and Shard have given the word; follow us up to Seron!

See the walls of Seron's Grey Keep; fallin', fallin', fallin' down
With them go the Irons all, Truthseeker and Smithy will end (hey!)
And then we've them foiled, to us victors go the spoils,
Seron will be our's to have, and our homes we'll mend

Curse and swear, oh at us glare; Glacier will do what Reven will dare
Now Marshals, have a care; fallen are your stars, low.
Up with gray and out with sword; on we'll go for by our lord
Glacier and Shard have given the word; follow us up to Seron!

Curse and swear, oh at us glare; Glacier will do what Reven will dare
Now Marshals, have a care; fallen are your stars, low.
Up with gray and out with sword; on we'll go for by our lord
Glacier and Shard have given the word; follow us up to Seron!

Jim responds, teaching a version of THIS song to the Marshals and Seron colonists https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpA4bomEcOI

He uses the tune and a few word substitutions and gets this:

Men of Seron stop your dreaming
Can't you see their spear points gleaming
See their warrior pennants streaming
To this battlefield
Men of Seron stand ye steady
It cannot be ever said ye
For the battle were not ready
We'll stand, never yield
From the hills rebounding
Let this war cry sounding
Summon all at Marshal's call
The mighty force surrounding
Men of Seron on to glory
This will ever be your story
Keep these burning words before ye
Marshals will not yield

Theme of Seron Campaign...I think

Post by `Citan on Sun Jun 07, 2009 8:19 am

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTaD9cd8hvw

The Trooper
Iron Maiden

Youll take my life but Ill take yours too
Youll fire you musket but Ill run you through
So when your waiting for the next attack
Youd better stand theres no turning back

The bugle sounds as the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of arcrid smoke and horses breath
As you plunge into a certain death

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We wont live to fight another day

We get so close near enough to fight
When a russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My bodys numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Jim's adaptation of over the hills and far away
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gix8l5OWBws&feature=related tune here.


Here's forty credits on the drum for those who volunteer to come
To 'list and fight the Void today - Over the hills and far away

O'er the hills and o'er the main, Through Seron Origold and Sion
Captain Ralf commands and we obey - Over the hills and far away

When duty calls me I must go, to stand and face another foe
But part of me will always stray - Over the Hills and far away

O'er the hills………….etc.

If I should fall to rise no more, as many comrades did before
Then ask the fifes and drums to play - Over the hills and far away

O'er the hills ……….etc.

The fall in lads behind the drum. With colours blazing like the sun
Along the road to come what may - Over the hills and far away

O'er the hills…………etc.

Another popular song heard recently through the ranks of the Void:

(To the tune of 'Young Ned of the Hill' covered by The Pogues or The Tossers.)

'Our Lord of Space, Reven'

Have you ever flown through lonesome space
And heard the stars a sighin'
Or seen our Raven Black-as-Night
Wing through a windswept sky
To walk the Void's long halls
And hear your children cry
To know this is where they want us to die

Since CoRe and Paixi pushed us outward
To live our own damn lives
There's some of us have deemed to fight
Through spaceways cold
Noble folk with wills of iron
Who are not afraid to die
Who'll fight with our honor held on high

A curse upon you Aria Paixi
Who cares not for our lands
We hope you die cold in space
For your back you've turned
To us and those we love
And left us to wither in our blight
"Their utopia's impossible" may you die alone and cold tonight

Of one great man I'd like to speak
A rebel by name and deed
His family possessed and slaved
They put a crime upon his head
His name is known in song and story
His deeds are legends even now
Our Lord of Space, Reven
And to no one shall he bow

CoRe's laws robbed our homes and choices
Even drove us from our land
They tried to break our spirit
But they'll never understand
The love of dear perfection and chance
That has made us all more driven
As long as he's our sword and shield
Our Lord of Space, Reven

A curse upon you Aria Paixi
Who cares not for our lands
We hope you die cold in space
For your back you've turned
To us and those we love
And left us to wither in our blight
"Their utopia's impossible" may you die alone and cold tonight
