  • the decemberists sarkisi, "picaresque" albumlerinden.

    cok hareketli kipir kipir bir eser. at kosturuyorlar sanki. zaten filin sirtindaki taht-i-revan'inda geliyormus heybetli heybetli baksaniza:

    here she comes in her palanquin
    on the back of an elephant
    on a bed made of linen and sequins and silk
    all astride on her father's line
    with the king and his concubines
    and her nurse with her pitchers of liquors and milk
    and we'll all come praise the infanta
    and we'll all come praise the infanta

    among five score pachyderm
    each canopied and passengered
    sit the duke and the duchess' luscious young girls
    within sight of the baroness
    seething spite for this lithe largesse
    by her side sits the baron
    her barrenness barbs her
    and we'll all come praise the infanta
    and we'll all come praise the infanta

    a phalanx on camelback
    thirty ranks on a forward tack
    followed close, their shiny bright standards a-waving
    while behind in their coach-and-fours
    ride the wives of the king of moors
    and the veiled young virgin, the prince's betrothed
    and we'll all come praise the infanta
    and we'll all come praise the infanta

    and as she sits upon her place
    her innocence laid on her face
    from all atop the parapets blow a multitude of coronets
    melodies rhapsodical and fair
    and all our hearts afire
    the sky ablaze with cannon fire
    we all raise our voices to the air
    to the air...

    and above all this folderol
    on a bed made of chaparral
    she is laid, a coronal placed on her brow
    and the babe, all in slumber dreams
    of a place filled with quiet streams
    and the lake where her cradle was pulled from the water
    and we'll all come praise the infanta
    and we'll all come praise the infanta
  • mad men'de de calmisligi vardir.
  • the decemberists’ın dosta güven düşmana korku saldığı, her dönemin şarkısı olabilecek kapasitede aşmış şaheseri. özellikle 3:02’de şarkının bitecek gibi olması ama bitmemesi ve üstüne mükemmel solo saldığı kısım insanı üzer.
