Proposed Canon

A gobwin sentry warns of an advancing squadron of flyers.

Music plays a role in the cultural and social interactions of several different groups in Erfworld. Several different sides have been shown singing and playing various musical instruments, including at least two types of horns. Erf-b1-p007Same-site.PNG Erf-b1-p094Same-site.PNG

Music also plays a role in coordinating troops in battle during dance-fighting. For instance, in the Battle for Gobwin Knob, units that were engaged in dance-fighting either performed their own songs, as in the case of TransylvitoErf-b1-p111Same-site.PNG, or music was generated magically, as was the case when Charlie's Archons created a beat for the Royal Crown Coalition forces to follow in the courtyard of Gobwin Knob.Erf-b1-p128Same-site.PNG

Lord Stanley can also generate music using the Arkenhammer to aid in dance-fighting. Called "Rocking Out," the Arkenhammer creates a supporting drum beat, backing guitars and a full Rock light show to accompany the user's virtual guitar solo, which is played o the Arkentool itself. summer-updates-035 External.png This tactic was used by Stanley to aid his knights in fighting Transylvito.Erf-b1-p111Same-site.PNG

Battle Songs of the Battle for Gobwin Knob

The following are excerpts from battle songs performed during the Battle for Gobwin Knob. These songs may or may not have been composed specifically for the conflict, but represent the types of music that units on the various sides found useful either in dance-fighting, or simply to boost morale.

Crazy!
Go!
Cool!
When you're a bat,
you're a bat all the way!
From you first startin' stat,
til the turn you decay!
Da DOO da-doo-dooooo...
Da DOO da-doo-doo doo DOOooooo...


Excerpt from an untitled, anti-Jetstone song from Gobwin KnobErf-b1-p101Same-site.PNG
Possibly written by Parson Gotti

Oh the mighty men of Jetstone,
Their testes have not yet grown!
Their king stays home and gets stoned,
While the prince goes out and gets pwned!

And the men from Transylvito
Are hung just like mosquitos!
To protect their little egos
They put burritos in their Speedos!

Stand up!
You don't have to be afraid!

It's blowin' peace and freedom!

Real World References

The Transylvitian dancefighting song is a modified version of the Jet's theme song and the song "Cool" from the musical "West Side Story".

The lyrics to the song overheard in the Glade of the Hippiemancers are from the song "A Mighty Wind" from the movie of the same name which is a mockumentary about folk music.

The song being played in the Royal Crown Coalition war camp is the Ewok Celebration song from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.[2]

Notes

  1. ^  In the original panel, the second and third words of the song are obscured. The version that is listed here has reconstructed those missing words (shown in italics) based on the Real World source of the song (in native Ewok).
