Old March Song Title?

Postby Sauwelios » Fri Mar 05, 2010 6:41 am

Does anyone know the title of this song? It's supposedly a folksong from the late 19th or early 20th century. "Hail Columbia!" has been suggested, but no (other) version of that song seems to resemble this one.
"In man, creature and creator are united: in man there is matter, fragment, excess, clay, mud, nonsense, chaos; but in man there is also creator, sculptor, hammer-hardness, spectator's-divinity and seventh day:—do you understand this antithesis? And that your compassion is for the 'creature in man', for that which must be formed, broken, forged, torn, burnt, made incandescent, purified,—that which must suffer and shall suffer? And our compassion—do you not grasp whom our reverse compassion is for when it defends itself against your compassion as against the worst of all pamperings and weaknesses?" (Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, aphorism 225. Compare The Will to Power, Kaufmann edition, section 367.)

Compare 0:10 on that version to 0:05 on Fallout's version. It's a lower key and slowed down, but seems to be the same progression of notes.

Yes, everything keeps pointing to it being "Hail Columbia", but you must admit it's a very peculiar version.

Yes, very peculiar horn version, but also probably better. My guess, they brought in a single person with a horn and did the rest on the computer.

Good find.

It's from the computer and video game Fallout 3. It's one of the songs played on the alleged President's radio channel, in between his speeches.
