how did I go twenty years as a Tull fan--

And never click that "Sweet Dream" is a song about faerie?

You hear my voice is calling
to be mine again,
live the rest of your life in a day.
Get out and get what you can
while your mummy's at home a-sleeping.
No time to understand

You couldn’t figure it out from this?

You do realize that "Sweet Dream" is on Living in the Past, not Broadsword and the Beast?

It's just not one of the tracks I listen to most frequently, and I never clicked on the "live the rest of your life in a day" bit.
I know that...but I figured if he was going to look like this broadsword, the Faerie thing wouldn't be too much of a stretch.

That and the fact Ian Anderson hangs out at Ren Faires playing flute.
It may be worth pointing out that "Sweet Dream" is from the era of Tull where, if you were to cut out all the songs that are about either Faerie or shagging (or both), you reduce the catalogue to almost nothing.
This is very true.
Well, hey, earworm.
