I've had Battle Cry of Freedom stuck in my head lately. I'll sometimes find myself singing in my head and stepping to it on the way to a class. :)

You aint kidding Scott... Its a great tune.

I would agree that Battle Cry of Freedom has gotten alot of head play time, but so has Bonnie Blue Flag..

Not a song, but that fife n' drum tune from Outlaw Josey Wales, and used in Glory.

Since our camp band had a practice Thurday night and we tried out a new song 'O Lud Gals'. A catchy little tune we really need to practice on.

Being a good dad, I monitored Avenue Q, before I let my 13 year old daughter listen......

Brian,

Funny you should mention old time music while working out. My wife and I go to the gym 3 times a week and she can't understand how I can work out listening to my 2nd South Carolina String Band music on my Ipod. She listens to 'Classic Rock'. She just don't understand there ain't no music better 'den de ole banjo'.

The Minstrel Boy, which is my favorite- especially after I discovered the Enter the Haggis version.

Stonewall Jacksons Way. It may sound wierd but I used to use it as a cadence in my head when I was running for the modern Army Physical fitness test. Surprised I never had a coronary!

Our local high School is Freedom Area High, thus our band director has adopted the Battle Cry of Freedom as the school fight song. Having two sons in the band, a trombonist and tuba player we hear it constantly as they practice. The band will be doing a Civil War medly for the spring concert as well. the wife is going nuts (daddy wins for a change!)

A really nice music video and a great tribute to all the Southern Ladies.

I believe, Fifers and Drummers correct me if I am wrong that tune is a variation of Old 1812 Quickstep or Welcome Here

Battle Cry of Freedom AND the Battle Hymn of the Republic both are good songs and they get stuck in my head quite often.

Sorry....You are wrong....

I hope you do not portray Johnny Reb.... Because that video is to the tune of The Bonnie Blue Flag! HOOOOOOO RAAAAAA

The good news is...... 1812 is a variation of Welcome Here Again.

I had H*ll on the Potomac (or Wabash, given your preference) stuck in my head for over a year until I found it on the the CD "The Music They Lived By" by the 5th Alabama Field Music.:)

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to morph from the chorus of Battle Cry to the chorus of Marching through Georgia? You'll start with the tune of one and end with the tune of the other.

This might be a good idea for a new thread so I'll start one as CW Tunes Medley.

Yup, when I hear the Battle Cry of Freedom, it lasts for hours.
However the version I'm talking about is the right one...yours Billy Yank, is sadly, the WRONG version.
Dang yankee.

I'm in a musical drama ("Civil War Voices") at 7:30 tonight -- Aura Lee, Battle Cry of Freedom, Bonnie Blue and that #@!!*$ Goober Peas have been rolling around the inside of my melon for days on end.

Happy birthday, Pres. Lincoln, Mr. Darwin and Gen. Dawes.

Is a period correct number "the soldiers version" of Mary had a little lamb It was a genious blend of "Battle Cry" And Mary had a little lamb. The chorus goes "Harrah for Mary, Harrah for the Lamb, Harrah for the soldiers who don't give a ****, Ohh we'll rally round Mary, We'll rally round the Lamb, shouting the battle cry of freedom."

Whatís the name of the song they play at the very beginning of Gods and Generals when they show all the different flags? Thatís the song that always gets stuck in my head especially after I watch that movie.

The song is 'Going Home' sung by Mary Fahl.

Ah thats it. I love that song. I don't know what it is about the song but it just makes me think of the Civil War and all the men who died, the men who never would go home.

That idiotic "Peanuts" thread got "Goober Peas" in there, and now it is stuck or something. I haven't stopped eating peanuts, though...

Check out the music video of Mary on that song "Going Home" in the G&G DVD extras (at least the premier DVD had it on a bonus disk). Reminds you what the men wanted to go home for...
