Ahoy, me darlin', ye've found a jolly round of songs for swashbucklers. Music is a strong theme in Random Magic -- so strong, in fact, that one of the celestial characters Winnie and Henry meet is Efterpe, the Muse of music. So, for the love of music (and pirates), here’s a fun music hop to check out, featuring all kinds of delicious tunes piratical. Start anywhere you like -- for each blog stop, you’ll be able to enjoy a merry tune, then just sail off to the next port for another round.
Hoist the mizzen and away we go!

You are here: #11 of 11: Songs and Stories

Songs for: (Delightfully) campy pirates

I Am a Pirate King (Oh, better far to live and die…) - The Pirates of Penzance (Gilbert and Sullivan)

Oh, better far to live and die
Under the brave black flag I fly
Than play a sanctimonious part
With a pirate head and a pirate heart
Away to the cheating world go you
Where pirates all are well-to-do
But I’ll be true to the song I sing
And live and die a pirate king

Shown above: Random Magic book trailer. 

Random Magic quote of the piratey persuasion:

‘Begads!’ shouted the captain. ‘Cork yer flaps, or oi'll 'ave the cat o' nine tails settle it for ye.’
