The Great Velocipede Migration

  • This song, like all the songs off the Wonders album, is inspired by Catherynne M. Valente's book, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. In that story, the heroine September encounters a "velocipede wrangler."

    S. J. Tucker creates filk music, which she describes as "the musical foil of fanfiction."
