FMA Music: "The Soul Within The Steel"--a loving tribute to Alphonse

FMA Music: "The Soul Within The Steel"
Original Lyrics by binaryalchemist with Teri Wachowiak
(to the tune of "After The Gold Rush" by Neil Young)
SPOILERS: Chapter 107/Episode 63
A lot of you have heard or read my FMA comedy music or the Mock Opera, "Revenge of the Miniskirt Army". I wanted to write a song about Alphonse....but it was harder than I ever imagined. In the end---it had to be serious. And it took me five blasted years to finish. Once I had seen the abovementioned chapter and episode, I knew it was time to complete the song. My musical partner, Teri, wrote parts of the first two verses but was not as familiar with the original melody so it is about 95% mine--so I get 95% of the blame, yes? We have done a very raw recording but once the descant harmonies are arranged it will be done again and shared.

Edward's Song: "The Hero With A Thousand Faces"

FMA Music: "Edward's Song: The Hero With The Thousand Faces"
Original Lryics by binaryalchemist   Music: "McDonald on the Hill" (traditional) Title inspired by the book by Joseph Campbell

I've written half a dozen silly Edward songs...but THIS is the serious one I'm proud of. It's not simply about Edward but about those who love him enough to create art, music, stories and drama--the FMA fans....it's about YOU.
It could also apply to a certain English boy magician, come to think of it...
If  you disagree...well, just allow a cranky blues singer the right to a bit of a a fandom protest song....
