Iron Maiden - To Tame a Land (1983)[edit | edit source]

A track on their 1983 album Piece of Mind, it was originally going to be called simply "Dune", but when Steve Harris requested permission, Frank Herbert's agent told him, "No. Because Frank Herbert doesn't like rock bands, particularly heavy rock bands, and especially rock bands like Iron Maiden"

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

He is the king of all the land
In the Kingdom of the sands
Of a time tomorrow.

He rules the sandworms and the Fremen
In a land amongst the stars
Of an age tomorrow.

He is destined to be a King
He rules over everything
On the land called planet Dune.

Bodywater is your life
And without it you would die
On the desert the planet Dune.

Without a stillsuit you would fry
On the sands so hot and dry
In a world called Arrakis.

It is a land that's rich in spice
The sandriders and the "mice"
That they call the "Muad'Dib".

He is the Kwizatz Haderach.
He is born of Caladan
And will take the Gom Jabbar.

He has the power to foresee
Or to look into the past
He is the ruler of the stars

The time will come for him
to lay claim his crown,
And then the foe yes
they'll be cut down,
You'll see he'll be the
best that there's been,
Messiah supreme
true leader of men,
And when the time
for judgement's at hand
Don't fret he's strong
and he'll make a stand,
Against evil and fire
That spreads through the land,
He has the power to make it all end.

Tom Smith - Crystal Gayle Killed Frank Herbert (1986)[edit | edit source]

After Crystal Gayle's "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" written by Richard Leigh.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

The spice melange, it's so cinnamon sweet,
I put it on most everything I eat.
It's addictive, too,
And don't it make my brown eyes blue.

Dad got control over all that spice,
But Baron Harkonnen had him iced --
Tried to kill me, too,
And don't it make my brown eyes,
Don't it make my brown eyes,
Don't it make my brown eyes blue.

So me and my mother ran away across Dune,
Got found by the Fremen, not a moment too soon,
They said it was easier to leave us behind,
But if we went with them, it would stillsuit them fine.

Now I'm dreamin' of a huge jihad,
And the Fremen all think I'm God --
Maybe I do, too,
And don't it make my brown eyes,
Don't it make my brown eyes,Don't it make my brown eyes blue.

Dog Without Warning - Weirding Way[edit | edit source]

Available to stream online at BandCamp.com. Not yet on their YouTube channel.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

strolled down to the indie book
store cat in the window, sign on the door

says "Theatrical Readings" coming Thursday

too bad that's the night that I role play

glide down the aisle past the Orphan's Tales

towards collectibles and rare book sales

that's when I see her smiling at me
and somewhere in my head yes I heard her plea

She keeps looking at me with that weirding way

Say the litany against fear and I watch her sway

come back to my sietch and give my baliset a strum

our breeding program, yeah it's just begun

Close the Asimov in my hands

move round the corner of the trade paper stands

then a tiny worry nags me

where does she stand on the legacy?

Cause Brian ain't his dad

and there's no co-author to be had

that I'll see as more than a mouse

and the canon closes at "Chapterhouse"

She keeps looking at me with that weirding way

Say the litany against fear and I watch her sway

come back to my seitch and give my baliset a strum

our breeding program, yeah it's just begun


Blind Guardian - Traveler in Time (1990)[edit | edit source]

The Blind Guardian album "Tales from the Twilight World" has a song about Muad'dib called "Traveler in time".

The morning sun of Dune The morning sun of Dune The holy war's Waiting for The morning sun The morning sun The morning sun The morning sun The morning sun of Dune There's no tomorrow The apparation of this land and it's dream Makes me feel I have seen it before I can taste there is life Everywhere you can find In the desert of my life I see it again and again And again, again, again, again Dark tales has brought the Dijahd Like whispering echoes in the wind And I'm million miles from home Traveler in time Knowing that there's no rhyme Traveler in time Knowing that there's no rhyme The morning sun is near First light of dawn is here The morning sun is near again The Fremen sing that Their kingdom will come And I'm the leading one Battlefields on our crusade Filled with Sardokaurs Killing machines crying In raising fear they're hiding Where do we go now? So where is the way? When I'm a million miles from home Traveler in time Knowing that there's no rhyme Traveler in time Knowing that there's no rhyme The morning sun I feel All pain and sorrow The apparation of my words in these days Makes me feel I have told them before All my plans will come true I'll control destiny In the desert of my life I've seen it again and again By my dreams I must find a way To stop the raging war I've to choose now I will leave My body and seek And time will stand still When I have to leave My body and find A way back to the world I love When I'm a million miles from home Traveler in time Knowing that there's no rhyme Traveler in time Knowing that there's no rhyme Traveler in time

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Step lightly over me
When I'm given to the ground
Keep in your memory
Where they lay me down

Let rain wash over me
Wash away the years of filth
Swallowing my memory
Wash it down with bitter guilt
Giving water to the dead
Drink what I used to be
Now the cup's gone sour
Since you've tasted me
You misplaced your tiny gods
Lost them to the ground
Let them suffocate with me
In the place they lay me down
Step lightly over me
Watch the hollow in the ground
This space left blank for you
Next to where they lay me down
Giving water to the dead
Drink what I used to be
Now the cup's gone sour
Since you've tasted me

The track is on Star One's 2002 album Space Metal.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

I have seen vision in a waking dream

I have seen places man has never seen

Am I the one to fulfill the prophecy

On the desert planet in our galaxy

Sandrider, stormfighter

Unlock the chains and set us free

Sandrider, uniter

Guide us the way and make us see

I have seen navigators bridging space

I have seen the baron and his evil ways

Forging plans against the planet’s nomad tribes

And in this dream I‘ve seen my father die

Drink the water of life

The sleeper comes alive

Drink the water of life

Only you’ll survive

I have seen the creatures in the desert sand

I have seen them yielding under my command

One day the universe will be cleansed

One day my father’s death will be avenged
