Shadowfall - A Thousand Ships 
(Richards)

A revisualisation of the story of Helen of Troy. Originally, this was to be a serious song about the futility of the Trojan War when, in a distracted moment, I thought about a modern take on it all, and then from nowhere came up with the line ‘left for Paris on the train’ and off it went in a completely different direction.
