About the Songs Part 1

Hello! I'm so excited about my new release. "The Byron Taylor Songbook," that I thought I would write some things that have inspired the dongs. Let me start with "The Knight and The Queen." I wrote it as an anti-tragedy. Remember Tristan and Isolde? Antony and Cleopatra? Lancelot and Guinevere? Of course, you do! These legendary romances all ended with the same result: tragedy. Tristan killed himself and Isolde afterward (at least in the Wagnerian version); Antony committed suicide and Cleopatra followed; Lancelot went mad and Guinevere became a nun out of guilt because she cheated on her husband, King Arthur. In this case, I wanted to see what it would be like to invert the trope of classic fantasy romances (although Antony and Cleopatra really existed). What if the soldier and queen actually had a happy ending? That is what my song is about. Check it out on the BUY IT link on my welcome page in this site :). BKT
