Listen, crowd, I'll tell you everything
Though I have to say I don't know much...

You know what would be great..? Being a professional bard. Going around singing songs and telling tales of old. I wonder if that is still an actual profession in this day and age. I could do that. I always get that answer in those little "What DnD race/class are you?" quizzes anyway. *snicker* Just think.. a teacher, a musician, a specialist in folklore and medieval times all rolled into one. Maybe I could dress up too. *grin*

You should also listen to this song. Blind Guardian - A Past and Future Secret. It's a somber medieval ballad about King Arthur, the Once and Future King. "Take him back to Avalon..." Very beautiful.

Bards you are, bards you will be, and bards you have always been.

Now you all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bards' song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here

Now the bard songs are over
And it's time to leave
No one should ask you for the name
Of the one
Who tells the story

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known
And you're not alone
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain
They all will ermain

In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarves and men
And elves
Come close your eyes
You can see them, too

Blind Guardian - The Bards' Song - In The Forest

You know what's kinda funny? Their genre is power metal. Not because Hansi Kürsch tends to scream more than sing, or their drummer is insanely fast, or their music can be fast and harsh.. But because their music is all about medieval fantasy.

If you like Blind Guardian, you'll probably like Nightwish.

In fact, you'll probably love Nightwish.. They don't do as much medieval fantasy as Blind Guardian, but they have a female singer. *Grin*

Ooh.. a female singer. Maybe a band I could sing along with and have it actually sound the same, rather than all girly, hehe. I think that if I were to form a band, we would have a male singer as well. That could be neat.

They are from.. Sweden.. I believe.
