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.
"Someone may object that the successful revolt against the universal and homogeneous state could have no other effect than that the identical historical process which has led from the primitive horde to the final state will be repeated. But would such a repetition of the process--a new lease of life for man's humanity--not be preferable to the indefinite continuation of the inhuman end? Do we not enjoy every spring although we know the cycle of the seasons, although we know that winter will come again?" (Leo Strauss, "Restatement on Xenophon's Hiero".)

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.
