Our Battle Anthem is a great morale-boosting song, fun to sing in battle or in the bar. It can make you smile and lift your heart.

Here's one to tear it up. (NOTE: You have to listen to the audio track to get the impact)

http://gh.ffshrine.org/soundtracks/2681/22156

(8 bar intro)

Quote:
 
Eagles live in the sky;
Squadrons, Red and Blue and Yellow,
I know that I was born to fly;
To spread my wings across the sky.

Man is always at war;
Nations cannot live together,
"Defend The Weak!" our battle cry (our battle cry);
Aquila, Masters of the sky (Yes, of the sky).

Still, we send out a prayer;
That all wars will end forever,
Let Man reach out to fellow Man;
And peace shall reign throughout the land.

Honor lives in the sky;
Colored Red and Blue and Yellow,
I swear that I will always try (Yes, I will try);
I'll be Aquila till I die (until I die).

CODA:

Wherever freedom is found,
That's where Aquila is bound;
We fight to see that we'll fight - no - more
.



Speak, Aquila!

When I first saw that thread, I downed the song and listened to it a couple of times to get used to you know? That's just the way how I progress new music :D

Anyway... I find it a soft nice song, with a lot of spirit and vitality. Real nice tune, it calmes you. BUT then... when I listened to the song AND reading the text during the song... :o ... OMG just absolutely... mindblowing :o :thum:

You ever got the shivers over whole your body when you listen to a song that you really really like? And probably will like forever no matter what?

Well congratulations... I got those shivers :ph43r: ...

I really love this!! :D :nana:

Outstanding job Sir!!

Yes Sir! Of course I mean it!! :thum:

Since I posted my previous post in this thread, I just kept listening to that song over and over again :D I really love it :D (even put it on my mp3 :wub: )
It even inspires me with Photoshop :P I have made another sig :nana: I'll post it in my thread ;)

Actually I was thinking the same thing, to add in some way the text in the song... but I can't sing!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm so happy I decided to post that link. I knew I loved it, but I didn't expect it to ever go this far!

The lyrics 13 added fit perfectly, and speak volumes as to the principles of Aquila at the same time. The music itself is awesome, I've had it on my computer for over a year now, but with the new words added.....wow, just wow.

It originally comes from the Gundam Seed OST, where it makes for very nice battle music. :)

<teary whisper....OK, no....that sounds too much like Michael Jackson.....how bout a hoarse whisper? :lol: > Thank you all......

Tom, now you see why I want this in any forum you can put it in......this, even more than Aquila Triumphant, will be a lasting statement of our time here. The music IS epic, and the words express concepts that will never fade with time.

I hope that, 10 years from now, when you're all adults, with jobs, families and lives of your own, you'll remember this, and remember the ideas behind it.......courage, pride and honor.

They will take you far.

Aquila Forever!

Can you edit the pin request to provide the link so the mods can find it easier? They want links.

Wow, that's all I have to say. This is a powerful, epic song; Fit for the name Aquila.

This should go on acs.net. We'll have something cool to bring interest.......as if that already wasn't the case :lol: S&S has their little "movie," which actually ins't that bad, we have this.

AQUILA FOREVER!

OK....after listening to this all day at work and at lunch (which was where I was when I wrote it), I've made a few minor wording changes, either for better phonics for singing, or because one word was stronger, or fit the line better.....I think I'm done with that, now..... :whistle:

Tom, would you update your off-forum posts with this? Plus the link to DL the music, please? ;)

Hey MAX,

We may have a movie too. I have my replay of flying the shorebirds mission. I trying to work with it. We'll see.

I've got it...We could have the music playing in the background during the movie....

Wait for AC Zero for the movie to fit the music, Tom.....then you can use the Red Typhoons......maybe find a nice Blue color scheme, and of course, Yellow will be available, or you can get that from AC4 or 5......
