Revenge

This song gives me goosebumps. Fantastic story.

"A music video filled with evil sea captains, vengeful mariners, giant whales, and much sea-faring woe."

The Decemberists' "Mariner's Revenge Song"

Arrgh! Why did the guy who was getting the revenge taken on him smile at the last frame?!

I didn't know there was a video (and my computer has no sound reproduction capabilities at the moment), but that's one of my very favorite songs.

This is a theatrical interpretation by a high school group. I don't think they ever made an official video, but they probably should. Of the various fan videos, this was my favorite. Check it out when you get some sound!

I know... was this planned or did he just break into a smile because he was nervous? Or did the ol' rake pull off one last trick?
