Wishbone Ash

Posted by shanoah on May 26, 2008

As far as videos having embedding disabled, Sean, I know exactly what you mean. Especially since I viewed youtube videos of Amish Paradise and Gansta’s Paradise back when I did that post about Pastime Paradise.

I was thinking about continuing in the Weird Al line of thought, and then about posting mainstream songs with pagan references (Cleanup Time, by John Lennon off Double Fantasy was the first one that came to mind), but then I happened upon a few songs by a group called Wishbone Ash.

And I liked them enough that I thought I’d share:

Leaf and Stream – Wishbone Ash

This song just has such pretty lyrics.

Alone I've walked this path for many years,
Listened to the wind that calls my name.
The weeping trees of yesterday look so sad,
Await your breath of spring again.

Yep, definitely been there.

Lorelei – Wishbone Ash

Here they are on more of a mythological bent; Lorelei being a siren in German folklore.

Persephone – Wishbone Ash

I almost expected this to be another song with a mythological bent; Persephone being Hades wife. But it doesn’t really seem to be. Not that it has to be; this song focuses more on the melody, anyways, and doesn’t need much else to sustain it.
