Songs of the Civil War Era. The Union Confederacy.
Songs with a good tune and rousing lyrics both mirrored and inspired the events of the American Civil War (1861-1865). They told tales of battle, slavery, emancipation, victory, and defeat, and a century and a half later, they enshrine the shattered brotherhood of a nation and the lessons taught by war. Popular American folksinger Tom Glazer (1914-2003) knew a good tune when he heard one, and on A Treasury of Civil War Songs, Glazer’s crystal clear voice spins out classic songs that made history, while historian Patrick Warfield’s liner notes take us deeper into the history that made the songs. 58 minutes, extensive notes, historical photos.
Some of the most touching songs ever written are songs about brothers. From siblings, to friends to fellow soldiers, several great songs have been written about brothers. Some of these songs were inspired by the musician's actual blood brother while others are about brothers from another mother. Some of the best songs about brothers are simply entitled Brother. This list features songs about little brothers, as well as songs about big brothers. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down references the struggles of brothers fighting for opposite sides of the Civil War. Whether you're looking for country songs or that of rap, you'll find the best selection below.
During the war, Northern presses published some 9,000-10,000 songs, and Southern ones between 600-700. The armies themselves served to advertise new songs to civilians, carrying this music with them as they marched across the land and holding concerts for civilians along the way. As in the cases of the men they missed, families found in music of the era a balm for their aching souls, which longed for the safe return of their fathers, sons, and brothers, and an end to the fratricidal conflict. We are a band of brothers And native to the soil, Fighting for the property We gained by honest toil; And when our rights were threatened, The cry rose near and far– Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag That bears a single star! Hurrah! Hurrah!
Civil War: Songs Of The South. Divided & United: The Songs Of The Civil War. Prompted by the success Ken Burns's popular Civil War documentary (which spawned its own soundtrack), Songs of the Civil War presents an eclectic assortment of contemporary performers tackling period pieces that date back to the War Between the States. Here's Sweet Honey in the Rock tackling the slave lament "No More Auction Block for Me," Judy Collins singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and Kate and Anna McGarrigle essaying the lovely (and very suitable) "Hard Times Come Again No More. Battle Hymn of the Republic (Album Version) by Judy Collins.
Elliott Smith released his version of the song, which features his double-tracked vocals, in 1997, on his album Either/Or. Williams and White captured that sound well, using their own signature harmonies. It's a song about addiction - in this case, to alcohol - a problem Smith dealt with along with drug addiction and depression, but the song's lyrics are a perfect example of Smith's ambiguous way with words. The Civil Wars cover of "Between the Bars" was released as part of a four-song vinyl EP last fall, almost exactly 10 years after Smith's sad and untimely death at the age of 34 (he died of two stab wounds to the chest, and though there was a note, it was never officially deemed a suicide). Other songs include Portishead's "Sour Times," Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" and The Romantics' "Talking in Your Sleep.
