Pete Seeger talks to SmithsonianFolkways and discusses how he came to write TURN TURN TURN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4wYiShPEyo

Pete Seeger says,

 …we realize this world has to stick together and music is one of the best ways to learn this.  A beautiful melody will leap language barriers or religious barriers or political barriers…Yes a beautiful melody will help tie this world together.  And sometimes extraordinary words will.  I didn’t realize when I improvised a melody to a short poem in the old testament that these few words would be some of the most important words I ever would latch onto…

THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, AN ILLUSTRATED SONG
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2010/09/14/the-defense-of-fort-mchenry-written-this-day-196-years-ago-by-francis-scott-key/

**********************
Addendum 8/21/21014

Thank Goodness it was re-broadcast recently or I might not have see it, a C-Span3 (American History Channel) broadcast of a 7/3/2014 panel lecture/presentation/discussion at the Library of Congress called MYTHS SURROUNDING THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER

To watch the video of the excellent, eye opening talk, click here:
http://www.c-span.org/video/?320280-1/myths-surrounding-starspangled-banner

Some things I learned from the video:

  • Francis Scott Key did not ride out the battle on a British Ship.  He was transferred to his own American ship, which was tethered to a British ship for the duration of the battle and for about 3 days after the battle while the British gathered themselves together to leave, after making arrangements with the British for the release of Key’s friend and client Dr. Beanes.
  • Francis Scott Key, like many Americans at the time knew it,  knew the tune to To Anacreon in Heaven and purposefully wrote his song (not poem) to the melodic structure of that existing tune.  This is something done all the time, even today, setting new words to familiar tunes, and Key did this on purpose after the Battle of Fort McHenry and while he waited on his own ship to be released by the British.

**********************

Wiki for the song To Anacreon in Heaven, the tune for which Francis Scott Key wrote the words that became known as THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER and the USA National Anthem
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Anacreon_in_Heaven

*
Who is Anacreon?
Anacreon was a Greek lyric poet, notable for his drinking songs and hymns. Later Greeks included him in the canonical list of nine lyric poets.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anacreon

HALLOWEEN

A list of spooky, fun, funny and evocative songs for our favorite October Holiday
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2010/10/30/halloween-singable-picture-books-ooooooooeeeeeeeee/

I’ve been working to create song sheets for each of the songs that use the most familiar twinkly tune and assembled links to each on in a single post to serve like a catalog:
MANY SONGS, ONE TWINKLY TUNE
Twinkle, ABC, Baa are only 3 of the many songs that use the same familiar tune
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/abc-twinkle-star-baa-blacksheep-singable-books-and-all-the-fix-ins-and-a-youre-adorable-too/

Using the same straight forward chords for TWINKLE LITTLE BAT didn’t seem quite right.  It’s a little creepy this song, since it is sung at the slightly creepy and off kilter Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.  I decided to change a few of the chords put it off center a little, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it’s fun to sing for being slightly uncomfortable.

It is fun to sing the ABC Song backwards, the ZYXs, and finish it off with “Next time let’s all go to Texas.”  The kids (and adults) always laugh!

It’s fun to “Start at the very beginning” (or the very ending) and sing the ZYX’s at “Sing Books with Emily” gatherings.

I first heard Ralph Covert sing the ZYX’s on his album “Ralph’s World,” at the end of the ABC song, Track 14.

**********************
Addendum: 4/30/2012

I think it’s fun to tell the kids that, “We’re going to start at the very ending…” and then after we sing the ZYXs, I say, “OK, now we’re going to sing the ZYXs backwards. Can anyone tell me what that is?” And someone will say, “The ABCs” and they’ll think that is funny. I love it every time!
