The Raven & Other Songs

Top 3 Interpretations of The Raven

There are some great interpretations on YouTube or MySpace of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. So here is a top 3 of my favorites, starring Christopher Walken, Vincent Price, the wonderful illustrations by Gustave Doré, but above all... "The Raven and Other Songs" by the Raven, some songs chosen from Poe's poems and composed in a manner to reflect the broad variety in which Poe captures and illustrates the entire human experience. From haunting organ sounds and screaching guitar on The Raven and The Conqueror Worm to a melancholic guitar on A Dream within a Dream and Alone each song was composed with the utmost care to truly capture the essence of what Poe was trying to express and the imagery he was trying to unveil in his poems. With a truly wonderful Annabel Lee rendition!
