A song about Windle Poons

Postby sixpac_drinkur » Mon Feb 28, 2011 3:11 pm

First time poster here! Hope you don't mind me using your delightful-looking site to draw attention to a song I wrote and recorded inspired by Windle Poons' adventures in Reaper Man...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-xNPleY-Gw

It's a bit lo-fi, so here are the lyrics:

One hundred and thirty years Unseen
All magicked out, a real has-been
I needed a fresh start, so I died
Now I can kick and scream like Ixolyte

Oh, you know it's a wonderful afterlife
Dock-a-loodle-fod, pass me the scythe
And I'll harvest all your corn for you

I'm going out I may be some time
Down on Elm Street, we're a crowd of nine
Zombie, ghoul, banshee and boogie man
Werewolf, vampires and a mystery man

Oh, you know it's a wonderful afterlife
I'm so glad to be here in the event of my own death, now
Dock-a-loodle-fod, pass me the scythe
And I'll harvest all your corn for you

Oh, you know it's a wonderful afterlife
Dock-a-loodle-fod, pass me the scythe
And I'll harvest all your corn for you


Thanks and all the best,
Jonny

Welcome Sixpac.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Wow, you lot really know how to make a chap feel welcome!

I'll come clean - I've only read three Terry Pratchett books. An ex turned me onto him a while back and since then I've read Reaper Man, The Truth and Guards! Guards! - all three of which now rank amongst the best books I've ever read, if not forming an outright top three.

Where do you suggest I go from here? The next City Watch book?

Its up to you sixpac. If you loved 'guards ! guards !' get 'men at arms' next . If reper man was your thing try a few of the other death ones , maybe 'Mort' to start.
First one i read was Thief of Time and i think the second was The Truth.

Went back and read them relatively in sequence from there . Either way theres a lot of enjoyment ahead of you and most of us on the forum are friendly so ask any questions.
Theres a mix of people just working there way through the books so you won't be alone in that. :D
