    It's melodically similar to a jig (or gigue), but played in duple meter where jigs are usually a fast triple. However, the music which has survived since then is mostly art music, and it's quite likely the folk music of the time would have had similar figures.

    10! for song Dance of the Death

    Let me tell you a story to chill the bones
    About a thing that I saw
    One night wandering in the everglades
    I'd one drink but no more

    I was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight
    Gazing up at the stars
    Not aware of a presence so near to me
    Watching my every move...
     
  3. The cover is unquestionably inspired by the Stanley Kubrick film "Eyes Wide Shut."

    I tried to find a still from the film to illustrate the similarities, but I couldn't find any images that were appropriate to post to the forum.
    Needless to say, it is a good film and you should see it if you haven't.

    Definitely. Also all the ghost-like girls in the Dance of Death booklet surrounding each band member. Do a Google image search for Eyes Wide Shut.
