Random Magic - Pirates / Musical Blog Hop

Mermaid's Cove Music Hop

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!

Captain Kidd – Great Big Sea

I was sick and nigh to death,
And I vowed at every breath,
Oh, to walk in wisdom's path,
As I sailed
But my repentance lasted not,
My vows I soon forgot,
Oh, damnation is my lot,
As I sailed…

My name is Captain Kidd
And God's laws I did forbid,
And most wickedly I did as I sailed

Random Magic quote of the piratey persuasion:

‘Aye! Use yer deadlights, mates,’ yelled Hammer Jack, ‘the captain’s naught but a scurvy tar -- let's send 'im to Jack Ketch! Take the ship!’
‘Crk!’ said the parrot.
Captain Jack lost his temper completely, and hurled his knife into the rabble, which immediately solved the problem. ‘
Take me ship? I'll 'arve ye both i' the brig! Oi'll 'ave yer guts for garters! Oi'll cut yer 'arts out and 'ave 'em for stew!’
‘That'd be a sight better'n the grub we've got now,’ Rutby Tom muttered crankily to no one in particular.
‘Have 'em for stew!’ One-Eye Pete said. ‘I'll get me spoon!'

I'm going to visit the other blogs on the tour later- I love pirates, so I want to check out all this music. Although I'm amused that the song I got is one of the bands that come up on my pandora frequently. :)

What a fun, chipper tune! I wondered what an "accidental pirate" song would be - and I am glad it was a good sort of accident! :)

Excellent selection!
