Fantastisk och makaber

En låt som är som en blandning av en kärleksroman och ett riktigt hederligt gammalt engelskt barnkammarrim. Jag nämnde kanske att The Decemberists ska vara med på HG-soundtracket? Högst antagligen inte med den här låten.

I had entered into a marriage
In the summer of my twenty-first year
And the bells rang for our wedding
Only now do I remember it clear
Alright, alright, alright

No more a rake and no more a bachelor
I was wedded and it whetted my thirst
Until her womb started spilling out babies
Only then did I reckon my curse
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

First came Isaiah with his crinkled little fingers
Then came Charlotte and that wretched girl Dawn
Ugly Myfanwy died on delivery
Mercifully taking her mother along
Alright, alright, alright

What can one do when one is a widower
Shamefully saddled with three little pests?
All that I wanted was the freedom of a new life
So my burden I began to divest
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

Charlotte I buried after feeding her foxglove
Dawn was easy, she was drowned in the bath
Isaiah fought but was easily bested
Burned his body for incurring my wrath
Alright, alright, alright

And that's how I came your humble narrator
To be living so easy and free
Expect that you think that I should be haunted
But it never really bothers me
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

PS. Ännu om HungerGamesmusiken: (för alla är jätteintresserade)

Neko Case har gjort en låt som heter Nothing to Remember till HG-soundtracket. Neko Case!

Man kan nu lyssna på The Secret Sisters låt Tomorrow Will Be Kinder.

Både Taylor Swift och The Civil Wars kommer att ha varsin låt till på soundtracket utöver den gemensamma, Safe and Sound.

Så nu vet ni det. Keeping you updated.
