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!
Songs for: Accidental pirates
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!'
