I just remixed this song (from the Academy-Award-winning soundtrack to the movie 'Once') - simply blending the two versions: from the Swell Season album (with strings) and from the movie soundtrack (with drums). Too bad it's illegal for me to post the results of my GarageBand play...
In GarageBand - Added a backing harmony vocal track, overdubbed a Stylophone track, pumped up the snare, added some piano and bebop ride cymbal from the break out.
SHALL WE HIRE A MONUMENT ENGRAVER TO GO TOTHE WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL AND ADD THE MISSING WORDS?
A MESSAGE FROM AN APPALLED OBSERVER:
Today I went to visit the new World War II Memorial inWashington, DC . I got an unexpected history lesson. Because I'm a baby boomer, I was one of the youngest in the crowd. Most were the age of my parents, Veterans of 'The Greatest War,' with their families.. It was a beautiful day and people were smiling and happy to be there.
Hundreds of us milled around the memorial, reading the inspiring words of Eise nhower and Truman that are engraved there..
On the Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us gathered to read
the words President Roosevelt used to announce the attack on
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941-- a date which will live in infamy--the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked."
One elderly woman read the words aloud:
"With confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph."
But as she read, she was suddenly turned angry.. "Wait a minute," she said, "they left out the end of the quote. They left out the most important part. Roosevelt ended the message with 'so help us God.'"
Her husband said, "You are probably right. We're not supposed to say things like that now."
"I know I'm right," she insisted.. "I remember the speech.." The two looked dismayed, shook their heads sadly and walked away.
Listening to their conversation, I thought to myself, 'Well, it has been over 50 years. She's probably forgotten.'
But she had not forgott en. She was right.
I went home and pulled out the book my book club is reading - "Flags of Our Fathers" by James Bradley . It's all about the battle at Iwo Jima .
I haven't gotten too far in the book. It's tough to read because it's a graphic description of the WWII battles in the Pacific..
But right there it was on page 58. Roosevelt 's speech to the nation ends in 'So help us God.'
The people who edited out that part of the speech when they engraved it on the memorial could have fooled me. I was born after the war! But they couldn't fool the people who were there.
Roosevelt's words are engraved on their hearts.
Now I ask: "WHO GAVE THEM THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE WORDS OF HISTORY?????????"
Send this around to your friends. People need to know before everyone forgets..
People today are trying to change the history of America by leaving God out of it but the truth is God has been a part of this nation since the beginning! He still wants to be and He always will be!!!
If you agree, pass this on and God Bless YOU!!!
If not, May God Forgive You!!!!!

Amazing song "Falling Slowly" - played live here in this clip from Sundance festival backstage.
feeling good about my 1st months emusic membership (at the "old rates";) - they have music from the film and songwriters Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova.
I think I'll submit a take on FatBoy Slim's BPA contest - Have some lyrics and melody that, modified, may well work with this track.
Love me some FatBoy Slim.
I guess what threw the Chief Justice Roberts is that the words are directly from the Constitution.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
I guess we can't expect a guy like John Roberts to care enough about the Constitution to get it right.
