She moved.

I took the night off from playing tonight. (Well, we did level up a level over on Velen on Palatine and Sunderella. The chat was driving me nuts though. Didn’t hear that many uses of the F-word since Scarface. I finally turned General Chat off.)

Anyway, after the wife went to bed I decided to just browse the internet. First looking at Azerothian maps to course out a questing strategies, alternate leveling routes for those tired of the same-ol’ same ol’ (such as we altoholics). Doing that I loaded up my Media Player and started listening to music.

That took me to looking up Pete Townshend (of the Who) and his album All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes on Wikipedia. I love his song North Country Girl. Which apparently derives from an earler Dylan song. Which then got me to thinking along those lines, I’m using Wiki here to jump connection to connection, and I found a song I’ve heard several artists do. But I didn’t know the lyrics.

“She Moved Through the Fair” or “She Moves Through the Fair” is based on a traditional Irish Folk song. Its original author is unknown. The song, a folk staple, has been performed by many artists, and its haunting tune and lyrics will be familiar to many.

My young love said to me my mother won’t mind
And my father won’t slight you for your lack of kind
And she laid her hand on me and this she did say
It will not be long now ’til our wedding Day

And she went away from me, she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her move here and move there
And then she went onward, just one star awake
Like the swan in the evening moves over the lake

The people were saying no two e’er were wed
But one had a sorrow that never was said
And I smiled as she passed with her goods and her gear
And that was the last that I saw of my dear

Last night she came to me, my dead love came in
So softly she came her feet made no din
And she laid her hand on me and this she did say
It will not be long now ’til our wedding day

Yeah, Warcraft nerd I am I got to thinking “Forsaken backstory.”

Version I know best is by B-Tribe (off their ¡Spiritual, Spiritual! album), and so then I listened to La Guapa (off B-Tribes Sensual, Sensual album).

That then leads to Gin Blossem’s Hey Jealousy, and on to The Judybat’s Waiting for the Rain and Liquid. Mint Royale’s Little Words. Nirvana’s Lithium, Smashing Pumpkins 1979. Moby’s Porcelain. Chemical Brother’s Surface to Air. Blind Melon’s No Rain. Collective Soul’s She Said that Time is Unfair. The Cure’s Cut Here. Oi Va Voi’s D’Ror Yikra. Adam Ant’s Wonderful. 10cc’s I’m Not in Love. William Shatner’s (yes) Common People. Oliver Mtukudzi’s Todii. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Oh What a Circus (from Evita). Four thousand, four hundred, seventy three songs to choose from. Where’s the time?? :) Touch and Go’s Life’s a Beach.

So what’s on your playlist?

    For some reason those lyrics remind me of the bands ” 3 doors down”-Everything is wonderful now-Song. Probably not the same beat or rhythm maybe, but meh!

    I like old school rap, old rock, some emo/alternative music. Guns and Roses definitly one of my favorites etc!..hmm should post something about my favorite bands…

    NotE: lol the word verification was “praig” similar to praise! (just a random thought :D)

    I’m in my mid-40s, so you’ll probably not be surprised that I typically listen to ’60s and ’70s rock (or newer stuff by artists of that era).

    Though I do listen occasionally to newer bands due to the influence of my kids.

    I usually play electronica, futurepop or industrial while playing… when playing with my wife it gets even more shifted towards industrial and metal.

    If you have the stamina you can check out this link to see the latest songs I’ve played.. http://www.last.fm/user/hexapuma/charts/?charttype=recenttracks

    Hi,

    I’m glad to inform you that I added your website to search-wow.com! And I’m also very sorry to post that here, but I wasn’t able to find a contact form :(

    What is Search-WoW.com?
    Search-WoW.com is a search engine dedicated to World of Warcraft. Based on Google, it only searches on a specific list of websites selected for the quality of their content. Therefore, Search-WoW.com returns more relevant results than Google most of the time. And of course, it also filters all the crappy websites full of spam for who knows what (You know, the kind of websites that tends to appear in the 5 first results of Google :-)). In two words, it’s a kind of directory that uses the power of Google for the searches. Human selection with the power of Google!

    Of course, some very interesting websites are still missing from Search-WoW. Unfortunately, I’m sure that I don’t know all the good websites on WoW! That’s why I would be very thankful if you could check the list of the indexed websites at http://www.search-wow.com/about.html and tell me if you know some sites that should be included.

    I hope that you will like Search-WoW.com and I would be very pleased to have your feedback. So let me know what you think. And if you really like it, you can always digg it :-) (or reddit it, or delicious, or whatever you prefer !)

    Kind regards,

    Julien,
    Creator of Search-WoW.com
