Songs for Ser Bryon...

During the war for Dorne : Quiet as a Mouse - Margot and the Nuclear So-and-Sos.

Tourists rob you of your home

In sunken boats

And you can hide quiet as a mouse

But they'll find you out

And she aked me why have you felt

So down and out

You can stay with me at my house

After the war: Schism - Tool

There was a time that the pieces fit

But I watched them fall away

Mildewed and smouldering

Strangled by our coveting

I've done the math enough to know

The dangers of our second guessing

Doomed to crumble unless we grow

And strengthen our communication

Cold silence has

A tendency to

Atrophy any

Sense of compassion

Between supposed brothers

Between supposed lovers

Can't believe no one's done this yet, but:

Wibbling Rivalry by Oas*s.

For those of you unfamiliar: it's a 14 minute recording of Oasis brothers' Liam and Noel arguing with each other.

I'd forgotten about that! I actually think I have that recording down in the Britpop Archives somewhere in the basement. Funny stuff, once you get past the Mancunian accents.

Kellyn's got a new song! Baby Got Back!

Jonn's even adapted some of the lyrics:

<OOC> Jonn says, "So, sers "Yeah" Sers "Yeah" your wife got the back? "Hell yeah" Turn around, stick it out, even Dornish got to shout!"

This is a tough one and probably varies daily, but today:

For Dorne...

Once in a Lifetime by Wolfsheim

For Westeros.....

The Future by Leonard Cohen

For shits and giggles...

Stacy's Mom by Fountains of Wayne (Thanks Dagur :ack: )

For her presumably loveless marriage...

Last Night I dreamt that somebody loved me...by You know who (Sorry, Jonn if you already said this one, I can't keep up with your damn Smiths references)

That one's all yours. Too depressing for me.

One day, I'm going to track down Morrissey and just... just... punch him in the face for adding so much otherwise-unnecessary misery to my adolescence.

Except that he'd probably like it, the bastard.

Thanks to J:

Ever since I was a young boy

I've played the silver ball.

From Skagos down to Sunspear

I must have played them all.

But I ain't seen nothing like him

In any amusement hall.

That crazy Dornish blind kid

Sure plays a mean pinball.

Pinball Wizard, The Who

Another couple for Marian: Clannad's "I will find you".

"Hope is your survival

A captive path I lead

No matter where you go

I will find you

If it takes a long, long time

No matter where you go

I will find you

If it takes a thousand years"

and also their "Ancient Forest":

"Came upon on an ancient forest

A guided path that led me there

Walking through the mystic forest

The legend, tale of times gone by

Voices whisper in the black night

Reflection deep in wooded lands

A floating mist that circles shadows

A legend, tale of times gone by

Giant trees so full remind me

Of many years and ages past

Will they ever share the answer

Of legend, tales, and times gone by?

Walking through the mystic forest

I'm walking through the mystic forest"

With apologies to Casey Kasem, a new batch of long-distance dedications from Jaesin Lannister to his contemporaries:

To Dagur Saltcliffe, with condolences: "Here She Comes Again" - The Stands

Here she comes again

Showing you the corner of a note

Looking like a woman in the spotlight on the floor

But when the day returns

You see she's just a little girl

To Kellyn Lannister: "The Big Time" - Suede

This is the big time, this is the way

Now he's in the big time--

And you're in the way.

To Jonn Lannister: "Charmless Man" - Blur

Educated the expensive way

He knows his claret from a beaujolais

I think he'd like to have been Ronnie Kray

But then nature didn't make him that way

To Reyna Rowan: "Duchess" - Suede

You've had your fun

Your money's gone

Your only friend is the telephone

To Jyana Arryn: "A Slow Fall" - Riverside

They say that a slow fall is easy enough

as long as you're certain of how to adjust

To Sarmion Baratheon: "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" - Jim Croce

(Do I really need to paste these lyrics? Is it not obvious enough?)

To Almer Connington: "Love Is Not A Competition (But I'm Winning)" - Kaiser Chiefs

(I just found the title to be dead on.)

Carmella - She's Electric, Oasis

"She's gotta brother

We don't get on with one another

But I quite fancy her mother

And I think that she likes me"

Now for a Doves tribute to BoD:

Jonn - Walk in Fire

Almer - There Goes The Fear

Dagur - Someday Soon

Jaesin - Catch the Sun

Kellyn - Your Shadow Lay Across My Life

Reyna - Far From Grace

Jyana - Lost Souls

Loreza - Valley

If you think I've got them wrong, please feel free to comment.

Doves lyrics are a bit dark for some of us, unfortunately.

For Serion and Elyn, in this beautiful love/hate (but mostly hate) relationship...

Love: Ray Charles, Ellie, My Love:

Smile for me, won't you, baby?

Forever you'll be on my mind.

Drink with me won't you baby

We're gonna make it right this time.

There's no one else like you

Anything you want, I'll do

Ellie, my love so sweet.

Hate: From the musical, Wicked, What Is This Feeling?

What is this feeling, so sudden and new,

I felt the moment I laid eyes on you?

My pulse is rushing.

My head is reeling.

My face is flushing.

What is this feeling?

Fervid as a flame,

Does it have a name?

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeees....

Loathing! Unadulterated loathing!

For your face!

Your voice!

Your clothing!

Let's just say -- I loathe it all!

Every little trait however small

Makes my very flesh begin to crawl,

With simple utter loathing

Theres a strange exilhiration

In such total detestation.

It's so pure so strong!

Though I do admit it came on fast,

Still I do believe that it can last,

And I will be loathing, loathing you my whole life long!

Everyday my time runs out

Live like a fool, that's what i was about

For all the widows who have been left behind after the war of Dorne ;)

Sting & The Chieftains - Mo Ghile Mear ( album: The Chieftains: the long black veil)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auSa0YfkxFE&

Chorus:

'Sé mo laoch, mo Ghile Mear,

'Sé mo Chaesar, Ghile Mear,

Suan ná séan ní bhfuaireas féin

Ó chuaigh i gcéin mo Ghile Mear.

Chorus

Grief and pain are all I know

My heart is sore, my tears aflow

We saw him go our buachaill beo

No word we know of him, ochon.

Chorus

A proud and gallant chevalier

A high born scion of gentle mien

A fiery blade engaged to lead

He'd break the bravest in the field

Chorus

Then we'll sing his praise as sweet harps play

And proudly toast his noble frame

With spirit and with mind aflame

So wish him strength and length of days

Chorus
