Modern Songs for Celebrating Misrule

Modern Songs for Celebrating Misrule

Salve! (Latin greeting of “hello”)
They say time and circumstance have changed us as a people. But I think we still look for something to love and to worship. Whether or not we believe in the gods. So I gathered some modern songs that I think the gods of misrule would appreciate. Enjoy! Happy Saturnalia!

Carpenters
Earth, Wind and Fire

King Harvest

Van Morrison
Cat Stevens

…..

You gracious Gods: Saturnus, Consus, Ops,
accept our thanks and look on us with love.
And let us see that seed corn must be saved,
that we need light to bring our seeds to fruit.
As we have done this day, so every day!
