The Mysterious Nature of Music in Fantasy Fiction

by Christopher Grano

Some might say that my love of music and my love of fantasy fiction are merely complementary, but for me, they are a singular passion. Stories told through music speak to all of us. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow stated that music is the universal human language, while more than a hundred years later, Marilyn Manson would say that music is the strongest form of magic.

Music is a cornerstone of fantasy. The first songs told stories to explain the creation of the world, long before history benefitted from the written word, before the word “civilization” even existed. The human voice was the world’s first musical instrument; it required no tools to build. Music has always been a tradition of humankind, right along with storytelling.

It’s been several years since I listed to this song and I don’t recall ever seeing this video, but when Lawrence Person pointed it out to me, I knew I had my Tuesday Tune post. OK, maybe it had something to do with him saying “There’s another Tuesday Tune”, but I promise I am not his posting puppet. (He totally told me to say that.)
