helen99: A windswept tree against a starlit sky (Default)
A new album by [livejournal.com profile] s00j is available here. Interesting mix of humor, faerie, and paganism. I particularly liked The Mushroom Song. Creature of the Wood, The Dryad's Promise, and Tam Lin were other favorites.

They changed the Tam Lin poem just a tad to make a song of it (or maybe it's a different version - there are many versions of that poem). In this version, Janet doesn't try to take the scathing herb. Instead, she goes to the forest to find Tam Lin, and when he's not there she falls in despair. Tam Lin appears just in time to catch her. Also, Tam Lin skips the molten iron phase of his comeback, and becomes a naked knight right after changing into a raging beast. Other than that, it's the Tam Lin I'm familiar with.

[livejournal.com profile] rialian liked those too, but he especially liked all the schmaltzy fae humor music, especially Alligator in the House and Ballad of the Boy Cat.
