Where the rose is sown…

We’re at war all the papers say
We will win I read today
We are strong it wasn’t us
We are right who started this?

Leave your work I just left school
Leave your home I am no fool
Take up arms it left me strong
Sound alarms the school bell rings

Sons of men who stand like Gods
We give life to feed the cause
And run to ground our heathen foe
Our name will never die this time will be forever

Join up here I wave goodbye
We need you, oh my breast sighs
Have no fear now I must try
God will be with braver men

Take the vow I know it’s right
Praise the flag the good fight
We’re at war I’m on my way
We will win why do I pray?

Sons of men who stand like Gods
We give life to feed the cause
And run to ground our heathen foe
Our name will never die this time will be forever

I wait here in this hole
Playing poker with my soul
I hold the rifle close to me
It lights the way to keep me free

If I die in a combat zone
Box me up and ship me home
If I die and still come home
Lay me where the rose is sown

Sons of men who stand like Gods
We give life to feed the cause
And run to ground our heathen foe
Our name will never die this time will be forever

Soundtracks

Everyone loves a good soundtrack. It’s why movie companies around the world spend millions on composers and musicians to get the right sound for their film.

I myself am not a massive music fan. I know what I like and what I don’t, and my range of favourite tunes stretches from Country and Western to Heavy Metal, and encompasses Reggae, Ballads, Dance, Contemporary Pop, and pretty much every other musical label in between.

I often have music on in the background when I read, and as such on occasion I like to give a soundtrack to a book, by picking a particular song that sums up the story. As a song is a story in itself this can often be a difficult task. On other days it instantly springs to mind.

The other day when I finished The Cry by Helen Fitzgerald, I immediately picked up my iPod and played this track, Freight Train by Sara Jackson-Holman. It is everything that The Cry is, and if you like the song, you’ll love the book.

Freight Train can be found on the album Cardiology

I don’t get to do this often enough.

I don’t get the time or the opportunities to enjoy doing what I really love. Sitting around with friends or family, just drinking, chatting and whiling away the hours.

I will be doing a lot of this over the next weekend.

End of show montage

I love TV drama series. I don’t care what country they’re produced in as long as they are good with catchy stories. There is however a commonality amongst American drama shows. The end of show montage…..

You know what I’m talking about, that piece of sentimental music that plays over shots of the main characters ‘coming to terms’ with the ‘events’ of that particular episode.

As someone who’s not a massive fan of music, I just like what I like, I usually just appreciate the scene setting of the piece and move on. Just once in a while however, something catches my attention, and whilst watching an episode of Season Two of Body of Proof, one of those once in a whiles, cam around.

I can’t stop listening to this track, and those that surround it on Andrew Belle’s album, “The Ladder”

If you enjoyed that, or if you like those montage scenes, maybe next time you watch one, use SoundHound, or Shazam to point you in the direction of the music that’s being used. There are some hidden gems out there we all need to discover….
