This morning while I was in the shower a new ticced song emerged:
“Legend of the Phoenix,
Legends of the Fall,
But Legend of the Sheepdog is the greatest of them all.”
I wasn’t acquainted with any of these legends, though the first two did sound a bit familiar.
A quick search online filled in some of the gaps in my knowledge and I learnt about the mythical Greek phoenix (a bird that’s reborn in a fireball), Daft Punk’s summer anthem from last year and Brad Pitt’s 1994 film epic.
But there seemed to be a lot less about the third legend. Perhaps this great tale is yet to be written.
If you can shed any light on the ‘Legend of the Sheepdog’ please tell me about it by leaving a comment below.
I hope it was this! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelert
The ligurian version; "tells of how a shepherd shot his sheepdog after finding it covered in sheep blood, only to later find a dead wolf in the stable."
