Familiar with Dave Matthews Band?  There's a song... Cry Freedom...  I listen to it quite often, it gives me hope.  Hope of this... FSP!!

"let this flag burn to dust... and a new or fair design be raised... while we wait, head in hands, hands in prayer..."  

"hands and feet are all alike, but gold between divide us."  "

"he thought of something... something he had never had, but hoped would come along... cry freedom, cry, from deep inside where we are all confined!"  

Just one that keeps me floating...

Peace!

hehe This is a good thread and I can't claim not to have thought of FSP-relevant lyrics before. ;)

Here's a good one from Skyclad, "The Antibody Politic":

"If there's anyone else out there
Disillusioned just like me
It's time to try to turn the tide
With an overwhelming minority

The masses are numb, their ethics awry
Nothing's as dumb as the vox populi

So if there's anyone else out there
Aiming sawn-off philosophy
Let's all unite and make things right
With an overwhelming minority"

That's my contribution for now, but I'll come back with others. ;D

There's a giant thread over on ASC about ancap music, no doubt there is significant overlap:

Uhh... Question... Does anyone know what a porcupine sounds like when its tail is stepped on?

I’m not sure which would be worse. The sound the porc makes or the sound the stepper makes.

There's a band called Poker Face that does a lot of songs with a freedom attitude. They are on the net, but I don't have a link handy.

How about "Freedom" by Alice Cooper on his 'Raise your Fist and Yell" CD.

Any musicians wandering around here who can compose something representative?


Hi Mouse:

Ya I was planning on getting around to this music thing at some point.  Anyone out there have ability as a producer?  If you'd like to dump some of your own instrumental tunes on me I can scribble down some lyrics and drop in my voice.  Then we could make it available for downloads.  Wouldn't be anything like Enya though, more like polysatire 101. Hopefully would keep a few of us entertained - reminded what we're against and thus what we have in common.  E-mail me, anyone who wants to try this.

So for the FSP anthem, perhaps somewhere in there the sound of a ticked off porcupine? Presuming its a dignified sound of course.

Hmmm. I don't think so.

Great.  Thanks Dex.  I was looking for porcupine sounds.

My personal favorite FSP anthem would have to be

"For What It's Worth", by Buffalo Springfield.

It is perhaps a bit overused, but it never fails to inspire.
