Permission to Use Your Material

Post  Dreamer on Sun Oct 12, 2008 1:18 pm

Hey guys,

So, since I have an extra week before the big party, I thought I might be able to make it even better! I want to put in a minstrel PC in the Inn that sings to you when he's paid... but... I want to use the stuff you guys have written! It's so great. But I won't do that without your permission.

So here's what I ask - if you don't mind something you've written to be put in the minstrel, either post it on this thread so I can make a craft out of it, or send a PM to me if you'd like to be anonymous about who wrote it. Include the following:

Lyrics, broken up into verses.
General tempo (fast, slow, mournful, quick dance, slow dance, etc)

That way I can get everything pieced together correctly, and I can make the other tempo echoes proper.

Thanks!

I've written a song or two which I'll gladly give you. But if they're going to get used my someone other then me I'll need to spruce them up a bit, make sure they make sense.

I can think of some bawdy tavern songs. But they wouldn't be appropriate for the stuck-up good guys Razz

They'd be used by a mob and a craft, so... they don't have to be proper for everyone. Smile If they pay for the wrong song, that's their problem.

Here's my first!

Tempo: Fast and upbeat, but simple! Easy to dance to, easy to sing along to, and something a farmer/hunter could play on a flute or whatever instrument was handy.

***

Drink, drink! Summer's bounty is around us,
And the fire burns, a-pop and crackle.
Host, host! Another round, then come and join us!
And the fire burns, a-pop and crackle.

Dance, Dance! The Miller's daughter dressed in greens,
and the fire burns, a-pop and crackle.
Swift, Fair! From one to the next a sweeping dance she weaves,
and the fire burns, a-pop and crackle.

Drink, More! The wardsman's yarns he starts to spin,
and the fire burns, a-pop and crackle.
Yeah, Right! His wolves grow ten feet with every win.
and the fire burns, a-pop and crackle.

***

Etc, etc.

PLEASE! Add more verses to it! Anyone! I intended it to be a song sung IC, with people adding verses on the fly. As long as lines 1 and 3 rhyme, meter doesn't matter so much (though I've been writing line 1 and 3 as 8 and 9 beats respectively). IC credit for it can simply be a folk song. Otherwise, the general theme is people attending a summer festival, and what they're doing. Alternatively, Nature in the summertime would also fit easily into a verse.

Why not take historical ballads and adapt? Here's one, it's called "The Unquiet Grave" and it's a ballad, so it'd generally be slow. Also, it's public domain! Very Happy

"The wind doth blow today, my love,
And a few small drops of rain;
I never had but one true-love,
In cold grave she was lain.

"I'll do as much for my true-love
As any young man may;
I'll sit and mourn all at her grave
For a twelvemonth and a day."

The twelvemonth and a day being up,
The dead began to speak:
"Oh who sits weeping on my grave,
And will not let me sleep?"

"'Tis I, my love, sits on your grave,
And will not let you sleep;
For I crave one kiss of your clay-cold lips,
And that is all I seek."

"You crave one kiss of my clay-cold lips;
But the call of death is strong;
If you have one kiss of my clay-cold lips,
Your time will not be long.

Love, where we used to walk,
The finest flower that ere was seen
Is withered to a stalk.

"The stalk is withered dry, my love,
So will our hearts decay;
So make yourself content, my love,
Till Valars calls you away."
