MOAR Music of Elfquest
« on: December 12, 2023, 07:17:27 AM »

Hi fellas!! It's been a dog's age since I came here, but it's weird but I've thought of this place often. I don't get to just chat on the internet the way I used to do, so I often think of places I like rather than go to them... and then I get back to work.

Speaking of work, that's why I made time to come here today. I'm sure you all know the Elfquest album. (One of my faves.)

I had occasion to travel to Arizona recently to work with one of the album's musicians, Leslie Fish. She's getting on years, and my quest was to record all of her songs that hadn't been recorded yet lest they be lost. This is when I got to hear a couple of Elfquest songs that had never been recorded.

I know there are a couple out there that didn't end up on the album. One of my favorites is the Troll King's Dream by Julia Ecklar. (I'll learn to play it eventually! And sing it, too!!!!! Roar!)

Wouldn't it be fun if we started a list of EQ songs *not* on the album? As a filker, this of course means I'd sing them at the odd convention... and encourage you to join the filk circle and sing too.

So I'll start.

The Troll King's Dream (Julia Ecklar)
Mind of the Beast (Fish)

... oh shoot. I can't remember what else.I'll have to come back when I get another title.

Ack. I completely forgot there was an Elfquest album. I know I have it somewhere but I haven't seen/listened to it in ages. I remember learning an EQ song on the flute in grade school.

I will not be good at remembering any songs not on the album. :baghead But (I'm sure you've probably seen this) https://elfquest.com/a-wolfriders-reflections-lyrics/

Thanks for bringing this up.

That songbook is gold. I remember when RP put it up. I was so happy; there are a lot of people who look for it from time to time. I wish I could get a couple of copies, not just for me but for my shop.

So we already have those songs on the list.

Fun and Games
Children of the Fall
Tam's Song
The Calling (one of the best IMHO)
Nightcrawler (This one has been filked SO MANY TIMES!)
All About Berries
Shadow Pact (I actually was partially inspired by this one for my webcomic.)
Shades of Shadow
The Hunt
The Confrontation
The Remembering
Marking time
Strange Blood
True as Gold
Suitors
A Wolfrider's Reflections
Triangle
Healer's Hands
Marching Orders
Troll Hall
Pridefall
Catatonia County Rag (love this one!!)
