Because of the work I'm still doing on the place Long John Silver holds in the TV Universe, I remembered this incredible song by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I introduced my brother Tim to them with a record album (yes, a record album!) I gave him for Christmas one year, and he rewarded me with a copy of a fantastic video of this song underscoring relevant scenes from many a pirate movie.

This isn't that video, but another interpretation using scenes from the movies intercut with the band in performance.

Probably one of the greatest story-telling songs I've ever heard. And my second favorite ELP song.....
