Two songs from mythology

Medusa was the serpent-headed monster of Greek mythology whose hideous appearance turned men into stone. Originally a fair maiden, she was violated by Poseidon in a temple of the goddess Athena, who then punished her by transforming her into an ugly monster with snakes for hair. Perseus, with the help of the Hermes and Athena, was able to lop off Medusa's head by looking only at her reflection during his attack.

26. Eileen McGann - Medusa
Beyond the Storm - Dragon wing music

Persephone is the goddess of the underworld in Greek mythology and  daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Persephone was beautiful and Hades wanted her for himself. He abducted her. Broken-hearted, Demeter wandered the earth, looking for her daughter. As goddess of the harvest she withdrew herself in loneliness, and the earth ceased to be fertile. A deal was struck to share her, and thus, the seasons.
