Choice Language, Capercaillie (2003)

“It was written by Michael McGoldrick while the band (Capercaillie) was recording on an island off the west coast of Italy, and he says the tune is in praise of the Greek god Homer [sic] as well as another great philosopher -- Homer Simpson.”

wasn’t Homer a philosepher

Yup, Homer’s a philosopher. Quibbles aside, this is a great tune!

Homer was a bard, storyteller of epic tales, not a philosopher.
