Valhalla / Elton John

¿Quien lo iba a  decir?

¡Elton John componiendo y cantando una canción vikinga!

Pertenece a su disco Empty Sky (1969) y él no debió considerarla muy importante ya que no aparece en ninguna antología o disco en directo posterior.


Valhalla

The seadogs have all sailed their ships
Into the docks of dawn
While the sirens sit and comb their hair
And twiddle with their thumbs

Oh Thor above the mountain
Look down upon your children
This is their heaven where they're told
To bring their galleons

Seek you find your place with me
Men of iron, men of steel
Only the brave hear the hammers ring
In the courts of the Queens, in the halls of the Kings

You can come to Valhalla in your own time
Come to Valhalla seek and you will find Valhalla
Come to Valhalla in your own time
Come to Valhalla seek and you will find Valhalla

There's long boats in the harbour
Which arrive there every hour
With the souls of the heroes
Whose blood lies on the flowers

And this heaven is the home
Of every man who loves his sword
And he uses it for freedom
To preach the word of Thor

You can come to Valhalla in your own time
Come to Valhalla seek and you will find Valhalla
Come to Valhalla in your own time
Come to Valhalla seek and you will find Valhalla

Realmente es una canción curiosa.
Ni siquiera sabía que existía aunque la verdad es que no suelo escuchar a Elton John.
Por lo que puedo entender de la letra no está mal pero el ritmo es tan pacífico... aunque, claro, no es cuestión de imaginarse a Elton John cantando a lo viking metal.

A mí me extraña que no se haya hecho alguna versión heavy de este tema.
