Okay, I picked this Revolution Music Theme and yes, I’m enjoying it, about as much as I did in posts quite a while prior to ever starting Musical Theme posts with Bear. Yeah, there’s more of this Revolution Music Theme on the way as time and computers permit. No way am I done with this theme yet.
In the span of the long term swing of things, some revolutions require more human species time zones than others. Oh, do I have a Tibetan flag? Why yes I do. This song headlines because its content covers a fair number of the motives for revolutionary action.
Free Tibet Now ~ “That sounds like a revolution.”
Written and performed by Liberation Dakini.
Consider this an ongoing revolution in progress world-wide due to the vast numbers of Tibetans in exile and supporters.
Burma? Myanmar? Who say Myanmar? Why say Burma? Who loves a junta? What’s in your rice bowl? What’s not?

Czech Velvet Revolution 1989 — Guess the song. No, I’m not going to tell you.
The Revolutions of 1989 – Yes, plural–in case you weren’t paying attention at the time or marooned in a part of the usa which does not concern itself with a damn thing beyond the gravel county line road, the events of 1989 in other parts of the world might have escaped your notice. Or you may not have been born yet, in order to pay attention or to care about paying attention now. A sad but true state of mind affairs for some folks. Hence, an offering of a very brief historical capsule w/ background music.
Frankly I had never heard this song before or even known of its existence until I was fishing for such songs. The imagery is wonderful. Who wants camo pants when there’s buckskin to be had? Hmm….
American Revolutionary War Song: Ballad of the Green Mountain Boys
Women and guns? Yeah, of course. No, this isn’t about that woman from Alaska.
Juana Gallo Songs of the Mexican Revolution
Songs of the Mexican Revolution about the story of the legendary revolutionary “Juana Gallo” performed by singer Guadalupe Del Carmen. The movie Juana Gallo was shown in the Azteca with the title role played by Maria Felix.
Cancion de la revolucion Mexicana que redacta la historia de la legendaria revolucionaria “Juana Gallo”, interpretada por la cantante Guadalupe Del Carmen.
I suspect this is a part of American history that does not make it into the educational indoctrination system in the failing public school districts in much of America. Why? Oh do these guys raise issues or do they raise ISSUES?
The San Patricios Battalion
Sung By: David Rovics http://www.davidrovics.com/
SAN PATRICIOS – THE IRISHMEN WHO DIED FOR MEXICO
Saint Patrick’s Battalion, “The San Patricios,” a notable arm of the Mexican Army during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848.
Dubious about why they were fighting a Catholic country and fed up with mistreatment by their Anglo-Protestant officers, hundreds of Irish, German and other immigrants deserted Taylor’s army and joined forces with Mexico.
Led by Capt. John Riley of Co. Galway, they called themselves the St. Patrick’s Battalion (in Spanish, the San Patricios) and fought against their former comrades in all the major campaigns of the war.
The history of the San Patricios is a woeful tale of angry, bewildered, naive, or calculating young men, from varied backgrounds, who deserted for a myriad of reasons and paid a fearful price.
The San Patricios, in the words of one Mexican general, “deserved the highest praise, because they fought with daring bravery.” But eventually, Mexico surrendered, ceding almost half its territory to the United States.
Each San Patricio who deserted from the US side was interned after the war in Mexico and subsequently given an individual court-martial trial. Many of the Irish were set free, but some paid the ultimate price. Roughly half of the San Patricio defectors who were executed by the US for desertion were Irish
No, I’m not going to tell you the name of the song. Guess or watch the video online to find out. Raspberries for everyone. Both kinds. All kinds.
For the moment…yeah there’s more dawning/coming. So much change everywhere.
Dec. 1, 2013 The Ukraine–do explosions count as music? Hmm I think not. The music will have to wait a moment. What do they want? Freedom and more contact with the European Union instead of more ties with Russia.
Music in the background of this informative previous News Post. Hey, news and music, what more can you ask for?
