Songs about (not by) pixies

Post by tonieee » Fri Apr 25, 2008 13:51

I was just chatting to someone about tonight's Offbeat which is a pixies special and I thought it would be cool if it was songs about pixies instead of songs by The Pixies but I can't think of any - the closest I can think of is "Rockin' Rockin' Leprechauns" by Jonathan Richman. Even googling for "songs about pixies" just find songs by The Pixies.

Anybody know any? I guess fairies and elves count too...

If there are enough I might one day do a Macho Music Is Stupid pixies special...

There are probably loads but they'll all be prog rock.

Don't do it tonieee. You'll end up with a '70s glitter rock set!

Edit: prog rock is probably more accurate. Humblebee knows more about these things.

No. I've got my mind set on it now - no turning back. If it must be prog then prog it is!

Anything by Elf Power? Not just because of the band name - there's something very LOTRingsy about them. Apart from that, their songs are quite okay.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

I liked the song "Pixie Paul" as sung by Rabies in Maid Marianne and her Merry Men,

I think Mark and Lard (my heros!) did a joke song called 'We are pixies".

Are you going to Offbeat tonight Tonieee? Reading your first post again, I guess probably not...

I thought that was an xhardcorex band name for a second. Hee.

Those proggers Circulus have a funny/great/awful song called Power to the Pixies.
the trouble with personalities, they're too wrapped up in style
it's too personal; they're in love with their own guile

I used to love that programme. I think I'll have to try and track that song down...

Cool. I think that makes three songs now!

How did you get that from my post? You're right, I'm not but I didn't say either way... I'm going to put up some shelves instead and attempt to do some more of the long task of getting our house back to normal after our recent building work.

Sadly enough, this made me scroll through i-tunes...
I found 'Things to wear' and 'Queen Mab' by Donovan and 'Tam Lin' by Fairport.

I also thought of the Laughing Gnome by Bowie and the gnome song by Pink Floyd.

I never thought about Donovan, of course he's going to have loads of songs about pixies!

You need to get rid of the "&feature=related" bit off the end of the link.

Ah-ha! Thank you.

If you are talking fairies too then how about The Stolen Child by the Waterboys?
