Subject: Song sought for Lupercania(?)
From: GUEST
Date: 08 Jan 01 - 01:32 PM

A friend is organizing a party for Lupercania (or is it Lupercalia?), a pagan feast that's got something to do with wolves. Would any of the craft-y catters recommend a song for the occasion?

It is Lupercalia...ancient Greek, or is it Roman?

hmm, no idea of songs...though it is mentioned in one of my coven's rituals for the season I think...

it is in part a fertility festival; women would run through the streets and men would lightly slap strips of wolf hide on their haunches to make them uh, fruitful...I think it has to do with wolves and lunar cycles, too..not sure...I bet if you did a search on the net you'd find more...

shoulda heard the reactions when I wrote about it for a witchy column I used to do for a feminist newspaper...("Oh, no, we can't have this...")

The one "wolf positive" song I know is on Magpie's recording "Living Planet", available from www.magpierecords.com if nowhere else. The song is called "Amarok (Song of the Wolf)" Unfortunately, the song's not in DT.

There is some good reading, plus quotes and lots of links about it HERE

It may also lead you to some songs.

Wasn't Lupercalia a precursor to Valentine's Day?

'Twas indeed, Philippa. You can take a look at this page for a brief history. Won't make any bets on EXTREME accuracy, but it's not TOO awful.

Whoops! Meant to put this in up there, but I was in too much of a rush to click "Submit Message".

As for songs, I would suggest that just about any love songs would be appropriate, especially "sweetheart" songs or songs that mention Cupid, Eros, Venus, or Aphrodite.

<sing>Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart
For me!</sing>

Hee-hee!

Subject: ADD: Don't Talk To Me Of Love (Malvina Reynolds)
From: Stewart

Here's a song of love, suitable for St. V's Day.

DON'T TALK TO ME OF LOVE -- Malvina Reynolds

Don't talk to me of love anymore,
Don't talk to me of love,
Beau Brummel dandy, pink sugar candy,
Moonlight and fluff and gossamer stuff;
Don't talk of heartache, make mine a beefsteak,
Don't talk to me of love.

Blow a bubble, fly a kite,
Dance a rhumba, see a fight,
I'm traveling light tonight, babe,
Don't talk to me of love.

Don't talk to me of love anymore,
Don't talk to me of love,
Beau Brummel dandy, pink sugar candy,
Cupids and lace all over the place;
Why should my tears fall, for just one meatball,
Don't talk to me of love.

Love, it's so wonderful,
It gives you wings for soaring,
Gleams of stardust in your eyes,
Violins and scented sighs,
But in the long run,
Even paradise can be a little boring,

Don't talk to me of love anymore,
Don't talk to me of love,
I'm much too busy for that kind of dizzy stuff,
Don't talk to me of love.

Cheers, S. in Seattle
