Now, although my poor little netbook isn’t powerful enough to run “Skyrim” (insert flood of tears here), I fast became a fan of the main theme sung by a woman with a voice like Sarah McLaughlin. The song “The Dragonborn Comes” was written by Jeremy Soule.
Her name is Malukah. I hope you feel the same sense of depth and wonder that I did. Although it is for Skyrim, if you take it as itself as a stand-along piece, it can be applied to Mason’s story, or the story of any hero of any class that grabs your fascination. I tip my hat to Jeremy for his instrumental and lyrical skills, and to Malukah for her voice.
And play the game, folks. I hear you can punch a dragon to death. Curse my feeble computer!
(Yes, that is my hand catching a shaft of sunlight one winter day in 2011.)
