This time of year?
Saved By Zero
Even though it actually has nothing to do with temperature, it is an odd comfort on the zero and sub-zero days going out to the bus.

This time of year? It has to be the end of cycle.

In the spring, Morris dancers "dance the sun up" lest it fail to warm the land for the coming summer.
This is another dance, the last of the year. There is no crowd of cheering spectators, no merriment, no music, no sound. The dancers trade their bright white beribboned costumes for black shrouds and perform in darkness and silence without bells.
This is the Dark Morris, without which winter may not arrive to complete the cycle, water the land with snow and prepare for the renewal of spring. Winter begets summer, death begets life.

This is a song about the Dark Morris. There is, of course, no music to the dance itself.

Yep that is my understanding as well, I wish we made more acknowledgement of the natural festivals, like the solstices, and equinoxes. I also like perihelion day for the beginning of the year although this would make calendars a bit problematic.

This seems to indicate a pagan origin to this type of dance. Is that the case? TFD claims it is old English folk dancing but makes no reference to paganism.

It's a bit of a 'mixed bag' really.

This 'Dark Morris' is imaginary - made up by Sir Terence David John Pratchett, OBE. in his book Wintersmith.

However, the history is recognisable if you know any dancers.
"Morris" dancing was named for "Moorish" dancing - dances brought back by men-at-arms from crusades and other trips to those areas. Part of the reason for the dark-face makeup of some teams descends from that - though there are other reasons mixed in.

However, some of the traditions are older than the Crusades (some are newer).

Several dances are very obviously based around the death and resurrection of the spring/summer. In several, there are seven dancers. The team of six and the 'fool' (usually the best dancer or leader). The team, at one point in the dance, form a six-sided lock of swords around the fool's head. They pull the swords out, the fool's head-piece flies off, and he falls to the ground - only to rise later and join the dance again.

It's the symbol of the English Folk Dance and Song Society.

Well, I can see by Epi and DragO's last posts here that this could easily develop into a discussion on pagan, esoteric symbols - what, with the inverted triangle of English Folkdom and all that Druidic mysticism stuff. This could go right off the rails.

Hey speaking of rails, one of my favorite songs - by which I mean in my top one thousand favs - is The Railroad Song by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

It's about a train hopping American hobo who rides in search of the history of Jimmy Rogers and the Hag.

It features a neat choo-choo guitar and rhythm melody.

The music I know by Lynyrd Skynyrd are:

Sweet Home Alabama (Against Neil young's Southern Man)


Southern Man by Neil young


Sweet Home Alabama, Southern Man:
I like both of them.

You will have to follow the link to the English Wikipedia (on the left) to learn what it is.

And this is a French song that is loved by lots of people across the former USSR:

The song became a number one hit (5 weeks in a row) in Japan 1968.

The hit song was sung by Pinky & the fellas.

Interestingly enough, Pinky & the fellas is not on Wikipedia.

Lola



I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola/Coca-Cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola
L O L A Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walk like a woman but talk like a man
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said little boy won't you come home with me
Well I'm not the world's most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes well I almost fell for my Lola
La-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Its melody line conjures up John Denver's song, which I always feel when I listen to it when I drink.
