Scherzo: a musical lark (not involving Ralph Vaughan Williams)



  • Post this meme.
  • To the end of the lyrics that have been posted by those before you, append the first line or full phrase from the third piece of music (with lyrics) that comes up when you shuffle or randomise your digital music.
  • At the end, at the list of names, post your name and the name of the piece of music and artist or composer whence you derived your addition to this meme.  (The Kinks generation and the Kooks generation may not be familiar with one another’s tastes, Wagnerites may not know of Wang Chung and contrariwise, and fans of the Bothy Band mayn’t recognise bluegrass.)
  • By way of example, it might read, after two participants, ‘Frere Jacques, frere Jacques.  A more humane Mikado never / Did in Japan exist’; 1. lj user FrogSarko88, “Frere Jacques”, traditional; 2. lj user HenryRoot57, “A more humane Mikado”, The Mikado, G&S you bloody Frog!’, and so on.


Let’s begin:


Oh sleep in peace, you valleys and hills.

I decided to remain in the last millenium so I have no digital music. However, it was storming last night and I was missing my grandniece, whom I taught to sing Skye Boat Song when the weather sounded scary. So I can give you this:

Loud the wind howls, loud the waves roar!

(sung by Jayne and Jaelyn, the sgt_majorette and the Little Diva)
