Super excited when you started talking about how the playlist was metal. Super disappointed that you didn’t want to make it all metal.
/giphy I has a sad
Playlist too short this time.
I knew when I first glanced at the write-up title that I’d be choosing Tales of Brave Ulysses.
Sometime vegan, never gave up Cream tho.
I don’t know if it quite counts as a retelling of a myth, but Pepé Deluxé’s “Cruel Youth” is a version of a much older (centuries older) ballad known as “The Lonely Willow Tree”
I am not saying Amon Amarth is gay, but I think Village People are way more convincing in terms of brutality.
Samson and Delilah 12/30/80 Oakland
My favorite metal story song is Metallica’s Whiskey in the Jar, a nice remake of an old Irish ballad. Rollocking good fun.
My favorite rock myth song is Icarus (Born on Wings of Steel) by Kansas. Simply beautiful, as is so much of their music.
What about Wonderboy?
