Re: Dark Is Not Evil: Do we really need to list *every* reference to night? I admit I haven't heard every song on the list (I started with Once), but some of the examples didn't even appear to fit the "romanticizing darkness" theme (e.g. FantasMic- "Wish upon a star" is a Disney reference in a song full of them.)

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Romanticizing darkness (particularly the depiction of night-time as fantastically romantic) is a running theme, seen even in the band's very name.
    • "Elvenpath"
    In this spellbound night
    The world's an elvish sight
    • "Beauty And The Beast"
    Recall the night you melted my uglyness away?
    The night you left with a kiss so kind

    Ah, dear friend I remember the night
    The moon and the dreams we shared
    • "Astral Romance"
    A nocturnal concerto
    candlelight whispers me where to go
    Hymn of gathering stars as my guide
    whilst I wander on this path of the night
    • "Tutankhamen"
    As the sun sets beyond the pyramids
    • "Know Why The Nightingale Sings", the name of the song, for starters...
    • "Stargazers": right there in the name...
    • "Sleeping Sun": the entire song...
    • "Come Cover Me"
    Cover the night with your love
    • "Wishmaster"
    A dreamy-eyed child staring into night
    • "FantasMic"
    Wish upon a star
    • "Away"
    The nights had more hope
    In their silence
    • "Bless the Child"
    One night I dreamt a white rose withering
    • "Slaying the Dreamer"
    Swansong for the Wish of Night
    • "Feel for You"
    Settling for a draw tonight
    • "Last Ride of the Day"
    Once upon a night we'll wake
    To the carnival of life

edit: I accidentally a few words
