Guns of Icarus -themed songs
« on: May 02, 2014, 05:38:45 am »
Hey,

quickly skimmed through the first few dozen threads and some pages and didn't see a thread dedicated to Guns of Icarus songs (I did notice the Cello thread, don't worry). I thought it could be fun to either make our own songs or edit existing ones to fit the Guns of Icarus theme.

I'll start. Here's the Irish Rovers' version of  "Drunken Sailor", which has now become "Drunken Swabbie". There are many other versions of the original song, but I believe this one has been going around in the lobbies the most. If I had musical talent, I could sing the new version too, but alas, I'll save your ears.

Oh, and if you like the song itself, do look these guys up on Spotify, Youtube, music stores, whatever. They've got dozens of good songs!

Enjoy!

Bah! That would be like you trying to play the piano drunk with a blindfold on and say it was similar to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Drunken Swabbie reigns supreme!

I like this song. I feel it has a GOI ring to it. Though maybe that's just because it is the only steampunk game I've taken the time to get into. Still, I like this song.

It's an instrumental, no lyric editing needed

Ah, I misunderstood you. I thought you had not only inspired, but also been part of making that song. Seeing that you apparently hadn't, that, I guess.. makes the song less terrible? ;)

I like that one. It somehow reminds me of Mike Oldfield. I haven't gotten into that many steampunk games either, but that shall go to my Guns playlist regardless. Mr. Phoenix did a fine job composing that song. Hey, wait...
