WMG: Donovan

The Donovan song Hurdy Gurdy Man is about one of the gods of HP Lovecraft

Either Hastur or Nyarlathotep both are humanoid abominations and are referred to in the song as "The Hurdy Gurdy Man" who sings "songs of love" to enthrall his listeners. The singer finds himself by the sea, probably the Lake of Hali in Carcosa.
