The Horror Honeys: Horror TV Tuesday Jam ~ 'Lords of Kobol'

Horror TV Tuesday Jam ~ 'Lords of Kobol'

Dei Kobol una apita uthoukarana
Ukthea mavatha gaman kerimuta
Obe satharane mua osavathamanabanta
Api obata yagnya karama 

Help us Lords of Kobol 
Let us walk the path of righteousness 
And lift our faces unto your goodness
We offer this prayer

I think my status as a card-carrying, Starbuck-obsessing, Caprica-scowling, Battlestar Galactica fangirl is well-documented at this point. With snazzy blu-ray box set recently in hand, I am currently excited-anew about everything Cylon (and did I mention Kara "Starbuck" Thrace?). So what better time to revisit some of the music that contributed to making the show great? One of my favorite piece of music from BSG was featured in S2, in the episode titled "Pegasus." The lyrics to "Lords of Kobol," sung in Sinhalese, are based on a prayer spoken by a particularly religious marine. As sung by Raya Yarbrough, "Lords of Kobol" is one of the most beautiful songs written by Bear McCreary for Battlestar Galactica.

By the way, have I mentioned I love Kara Thrace? ~RH

I love you.
