Song(s) of the Magpie

Why are songs about magpies so damn beautiful? I say this because there are not one, not two, but three songs currently on my hard drive about the bird.

"Song of the Magpie" by Sea Wolf is by far the most stunning. Swelling strings, and an epic refrain of "I forgive you" make for one heavily emotional, yet never maudlin song.

Oh, and here are the other two songs in case you were wondering:

the Mountain Goats - Magpie.mp3
Patrick Wolf - Magpie.mp3

There's a song off Joan As Police Woman's new album called "Magpies." It's pretty amazing.
