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.
"Eternal return is philosophy's _natural_ edifying teaching; it does not comfort itself or others with the next world ostensibly more perfect than our own; it says of the only world there is, or rather it 'shouts insatiably' (aph. 56) to the world as it is: Be what you are, be eternally what you are." (Laurence Lampert, _Leo Strauss and Nietzsche_, page 57.)

"Plato and Nietzsche share [...] the essential paganism of all philosophy, eros for the earth, and that is the deepest sharing, for each discovered that in being eros for what is, philosophy is eros for _eros_, for being as fecund becoming that allows itself to be glimpsed in what it is: eros or will to power." (Lampert, _How Philosophy Became Socratic_, page 417.)

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.
