    Here's a real battle song, "pour vous."
    France's National Anthem

    La Marseillaise
    Paroles et musique de Rouget de Lisle (1760-1836)

    Allons enfants de la Patrie
    Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
    Contre nous de la tyrannie
    L'étendard sanglant est levé
    Entendez-vous dans nos campagnes
    Mugir ces féroces soldats?
    Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras.
    Egorger vos fils, vos compagnes !

    Aux armes citoyens
    Formez vos bataillons
    Marchons, marchons
    Qu'un sang impur
    Abreuve nos sillons

    Que veut cette horde d'esclaves
    De traîtres, de rois conjurés ?
    Pour qui ces ignobles entraves
    Ces fers dès longtemps préparés ?
    Français, pour nous, ah! quel outrage
    Quels transports il doit exciter ?
    C'est nous qu'on ose méditer
    De rendre à l'antique esclavage !

    Quoi ces cohortes étrangères !
    Feraient la loi dans nos foyers !
    Quoi ! ces phalanges mercenaires
    Terrasseraient nos fils guerriers !
    Grand Dieu! par des mains enchaînées
    Nos fronts sous le joug se ploieraient
    De vils despotes deviendraient
    Les maîtres des destinées.

    Tremblez, tyrans et vous perfides
    L'opprobre de tous les partis
    Tremblez ! vos projets parricides
    Vont enfin recevoir leurs prix !
    Tout est soldat pour vous combattre
    S'ils tombent, nos jeunes héros
    La France en produit de nouveaux,
    Contre vous tout prêts à se battre

    Français, en guerriers magnanimes
    Portez ou retenez vos coups !
    Épargnez ces tristes victimes
    A regret s'armant contre nous
    Mais ces despotes sanguinaires
    Mais ces complices de Bouillé
    Tous ces tigres qui, sans pitié
    Déchirent le sein de leur mère !

    Nous entrerons dans la carrière
    Quand nos aînés n'y seront plus
    Nous y trouverons leur poussière
    Et la trace de leurs vertus
    Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre
    Que de partager leur cercueil
    Nous aurons le sublime orgueil
    De les venger ou de les suivre !

    Amour sacré de la Patrie
    Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs
    Liberté, Liberté chérie
    Combats avec tes défenseurs ! (bis)
    Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
    Accoure à tes mâles accents
    Que tes ennemis expirants
    Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire !

    Ironic, isn't it? That a nation with a reputation for defeat on the battlefield has an anthem like that.

    Heres a favorite of mine right now. Its pretty well the Christian Eminem....KJ-52, entitled, "Dear Slim".

    Dear Slim I never wrote you or been calling
    my name ain't Stan son nah we've never met and
    my name's KJ let me begin by introducing now
    myself to you and these very reasons I'll be writing
    why I took the time, the who what where and why and
    the purpose of my verse and the reasons I'm reciting
    what I hope you're learning from the truth I pray you're finding
    and every word I'm writing down upon the dotted lines and

    see I heard ya first album it was called infinite
    I shook my head cause nowadays you sounding different
    what drove ya to take your whole persona and be flipping it
    now what makes a man totally change see I ain't getting it

    see was you sick of getting booed when you was ripping it?
    and sick of never having dough and you wanted to put an end to it?
    what good's all kinds of dough plus all kinds of flow,
    to gain a world of fans, but suffer the loss of soul?

    La la la la la la
    la la la la la la la la (to whom it may concern)

    Dear Slim I never wrote you or been calling
    this is my 2nd letter cause see son I gots a real problem
    it's that to you that I'm always catching these comparisons
    and after shows I got these people coming up to me saying
    'you sound like slim shady' 'you sound like eminem'
    and I be like now really man, do I gots to go through this again?
    see I used to get mad and sick of people saying that
    till at this one show this one day I met this one cat
    he told me how he used to listen to you but now listens to me,
    had your LP but threw it out and bought my CD
    I'm like for real he's like yeah, said my music made a difference
    it got him away from all your words and images
    gotta mention this, now what about the effects you have on kids?
    you ever stop to think about the millions you influece?
    or is it just irrelevant, is it a true life you telling it,
    or just a way for some record companies selling it?
    the only thing we got in common is our melanin,
    or a lack of it but anyway now this is what I'm saying

    it's for you that I'm on my knees now daily praying
    praying that God opens your eyes now to what I'm relaying
    now I'm praying that it's your heart that will soon be changing
    praying one day that you'll be calling upon his name and
    but anyway I'm signing off now don't keep me waiting
    this is KJ, another cat just trying to make it

    [chorus]

    Dear Slim I heard about the stuff you's going through
    see I could relate to you cause son I'm about as old as you
    see we both know what it's like just to be growing up,
    to be in a neighborhood when you's the one and only kid that's white
    or to get booed when you on the mic just because your skin is light
    it ain't right but sometimes you know that's life

    but really tell me what you do?
    you just push on with hopes that someday you'll put on your crew
    I hope you understand that I ain't even dissing you
    and even though it's a song you'll probably never listen to
    see what I send to you is this
    is that a life without Christ is just a life that is never fixed.
    I hope you remember this now, a few sentences
    about a living God who loves you and plus forgives
    and I'll be praying for your ex-wife and plus your kid
    it's hard to live in a world as crazy as this one is
    and even though now it really might sound redundant
    God's got mad love for you up in a mad abundance
    you'll sell a couple mill I'll probably sell a couple hundred
    there's more to life than selling records and just getting blunted

    but anyway that's really all I gots to say
    just another word from an emcee now around the way
    maybe some day we meet eachother in some way
    till then, one love one God one way.

    Adniral said: Ironic, isn't it? That a nation with a reputation for defeat on the battlefield has an anthem like that.

    Ironic isn't that the French officially beat the Germans in WWI. Check it out! And one of the only reason they didn't fight in WWII and fell under control in 6 weeks is they didn't want their country bombed to shreds. I wouldn't be to proud of Germany's history looking back only..mm 70 years? :( I wish you'd quite trying to argue all the time!!


    BACK to the music...Here's one for my Christian buddies! :)

    Big Daddy Weave - In Christ
    From the album One And Only

    Well I may not be the greatest man to walk this earth
    But I know who is
    And I may not amount to what you think is much
    But I already do to Him
    While people keep searching for answers
    Looking for a light in the dark
    I'm standing with the answer
    Cause He is living in my heart

    In Christ I can do all things
    In Christ I mount up on eagle's wings
    In Christ I wait for a great reward
    That I have in store
    In Christ I have His righteousness
    In Christ I have what I confess
    In Christ I don't worry about all the rest
    Cause everything I need to be is in Christ

    Well you might think that I'm sounding all too prideful
    But let me tell you something true
    The very one who lives inside of me right now
    Wants to live inside of you
    Instead of searching any longer
    You can have peace today
    You can take hold of the answer
    Then you'll be able to say

    In Him we live and move
    And in Him we have our being
    As we all live in Him
    Together we can sing

    Rammstein - Mutter

    Die Tränen greiser Kinderschar
    ich zieh sie auf ein weisses Haar
    werf in die Luft die nasse Kette
    und wünsch mir, dass ich eine Mutter hätte

    Keine Sonne die mir scheint
    keine Brust hat Milch geweint
    in meiner Kehle steckt ein Schlauch
    Hab keinen Nabel auf dem Bauch

    Mutter

    Ich durfte keine Nippel lecken
    und keine Falte zum Verstecken
    niemand gab mir einen Namen
    gezeugt in Hast und ohne Samen

    Der Mutter die mich nie geboren
    hab ich heute Nacht geschworen
    ich werd ihr eine Krankheit schenken
    und sie danach im Fluss versenken

    Mutter

    In ihren Lungen wohnt ein Aal
    auf meiner Stirn ein Muttermal
    entferne es mit Messers Kuss
    auch wenn ich daran sterben muss

    Mutter

    In ihren Lungen wohnt ein Aal
    auf meiner Stirn ein Muttermal
    entferne es mit Messers Kuss
    auch wenn ich verbluten muss

    Mutter
    oh gib mir Kraft

    Hey Izird and Primrodo do you like Point of Grace? They have some great musical talent! :)

    Point of Grace
    YES, I BELIEVE

    When I said that I would follow
    It was with an honest heart
    But I didn't fully understand the cost
    'Cause there are saints throughout the ages
    And there are those today
    Who show us what it really means to carry the cross
    That only fuels my devotion
    No matter what comes I will say

    (Chorus)
    Yes, I believe
    I believe with all that is in me
    Yes, I believe
    Though the world rises up against me
    I will be faithful
    To the choice I have made
    I am determined
    I will not be ashamed
    To live so the whole world can see
    That yes, I believe

    There will never be a reason
    To lose this confidence
    For I have found where my assurance lies
    It is not in my own power
    But in who my Savior is
    And the truth of this conviction
    Makes me shout to the sky

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Yes, I believe he is risen
    Yes, I believe we are forgiven
    Yes, I believe and one day we'll see him
    And together we'll say

    Sensoria
    by Cabaret Voltaire

    His head is not his memory.
    Visions coming, one, two, three.
    Trickle up, trickle down.
    Wearily, we come unwound.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    In hard times, hard thrills.
    Reaching for the chosen pills.
    Dragnets will pull you in.
    Tell you that you're deep in sin.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    In hard times, hard thrills.
    Reaching for the chosen pills.
    Dragnets will pull you in.
    Tell you that you're deep in sin.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    Once you were a lonely playboy.
    Heading for a simple joy.
    Trickles up, trickles down.
    Frankly, I don't give a damn.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    In hard times, hard thrills.
    Reaching for the chosen pills.
    Dragnets will pull you in.
    Tell you that you're deep in sin.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    Her new father, where and when?
    Reaching for a giddy end.
    Like a girl on a rainy day.
    Have the needs to keep it sane.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    Senses reaching fever pitch.
    Reaching for a giddy end.
    Like a girl on a rainy day.
    Have the needs to keep it sane.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    His head is not his memory.
    Visions coming, one, two, three.
    Trickle up, trickle down.
    Wearily, we come unwound.
    In hard times, hard thrills.
    Reaching for the chosen pills.
    Dragnets will pull you in.
    Tell you that you're deep in sin.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    Have the needs to keep them sane.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.
    Sensoria, sensoria, sensoria, sensoria.

    Here's a German band I do like! :)

    SCORPIONS -
    Love At First Sting
    ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANE

    It's early morning
    The sun comes out
    Last night was shaking
    And pretty loud
    My cat is purring
    And scratches my skin
    So what is wrong
    With another sin
    The bitch is hungry
    She needs to tell
    So give her inches
    And feed her well
    More days to come
    New places to go
    I've got to leave
    It's time for a show

    Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
    Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

    My body is burning
    It starts to shout
    Desire is coming
    It breaks out loud
    Lust is in cages
    Till storm breaks loose
    Just have to make it
    With someone I choose
    The night is calling
    I have to go
    The wolf is hungry
    He runs the show
    He's licking his lips
    He's ready to win
    On the hunt tonight
    For love at first sting

    Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
    Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
    Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
    Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

    Here's a German band I do like!

    You should try listening to Rammstein one of these days. I don't know if you have an aversion to German or not, but they're very popular. Till Lindemann, the vocalist, is easily the greatest vocalist of all time, and their sound is a refreshing change from the garbage North America puts out.

    Hmm...Point of Grace. I'm not much of a CCM fan. The Christian music I like is much heavier, like POD, Thousand Foot Krutch, Pillar, stuff like that. I was once a really big Newsboys fan though.

    EDIT: For the song in my next post, I think it sounds better than Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady." I mean that not only lyrically, but musically as well, if you ever get a chance to listen to it.

    The Real Sin Savior (Parody of The Real Slim Shady by Eminem)

    May i have your repentance please? Will you tell him "Save me" and please stand up? (x2) We're gonna have to prod him here.

    Y'all act like you never seen a nice person before,you oghtta hope in the Lord,you're panting tongue is thirsting for more. You started lookin' around searchin 'cause you're uncertain you're sure you know where you're goin' eternally. If you return to God,ah,wait,no,wait we're sinning,we couldn't get saved with the things we did,can we? And Dr. J. says nothing you did is such a grave sin it costs you salvation,Ha Ha,Heavenly livin's above every man. Chick-a-chick-a-chick-a he's crazy! I'm sick of them born agains walkin' around askin' if you know God,speakin' of you know who. Yeah,but there's no proof though. Yeah, probably got a couple of you who think i lack proof. But no worse then what's goin' on in America's classrooms,sometimes i wanna get on TV and just spread the truth,but can't,but the school can tell me where we came from evolution. "My mama was a fish,my mama was a fish,and if we're monkeys you might as well forget original sin!" And that's the message that we deliver to little kids,and expect them not to question on their own if God exists.Of course they wonder if the Lord's fake by the time they hit fourth grade. Theygot the Easter Bunny and Santa don't they? We ain't shinin' examples. Well some of the scandals are caused by people posin' as evangelists. But if Jesus loved his enemies and Pharisees,then there's no reason that you can't get another chance and believe. But if feel a slight chill,I got the anti-freeze,this is not a fantasy,it's important and it's free.

    I've sinned greatly,but Christ's for real,baby. It's a wonder He saved me and didn't just hate me,so won't you tell him "Save me" and please stand up.. Yes i've been crazy,yes,I've been real shady. Always wanted him to save me,but just didn't say it,so won;t you tell him "Save me" and please stand up..

    Will Smith don't gotta discuss the Christian path to salvation.Well,i do,it affects him and affects you too. You think i give a care of he likes my parodies,half of you kiddies wont even look at me,let alone stare at me.But J,what if we pray? Wouldn't we be weird? Why? would you reject Christ just to fit with your peers? So you can live in fear for the next 60 years. This ain't imaginary,you better get prepared. The price of sin yes it costs ya dearly with death first,and when that part is over if you ain't got saved it's much worse. Little chance now they'll put me on MTV,yeah it's true,but i'd think he'd scare all the kids,ree ree! I said now when they oughtta know and John 3:3 it shows the whole world how they need born again to be free.I'm singin' you little girls and boys spoofs, all you do is ignore me. Though i have been sent here to inform you and there's a million of us just like me you judge like me. We're just like triple fudge ice cream, We're just quite sweet. You watch Saul in Acts 9:3,you just might see you're just like him,you're not fighin' me.

    I've sinned greatly,but Christ He still saved me from a hundred temptations and death,sin,and Hades. So won't you tell him "Save me" and please stand up.. Yes,my sinned shamed me,yet I've been healed lately.God the Father forgave me for messin' with Satan,so won't you tell him "Save me" and please stand up..

    I'm like a breath mint,you listen to but i'm only givin' you things you thought about in your head with my religious group. The only difference is I got the call to say in front of y'all,and i don't gotta be Paul,the book i quote has it all. I just get out the Bible and read it and whether you like it you need it. Sure as i can see that better than 90 percent of you happen to doubt me,then you wonder how can kids give up their values,i tell you it's funny. 'Cause at the place I'm goin' when i'm buried,I'll see the only person in the world I know wo's worthy. He's the first and last and i'm J. Jackson I'm the worst and I'm a jerk and Jesus knows that but my braggin' ain't workin' a

    Time by Pink Floyd (Mason, Waters, Wright, Gilmour)
    from The Dark Side of the Moon

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over,
    Thought I'd something more to say.

    Izird, I like POD also but they sometimes I can't tell if they are a Christian band or not. They do have some good songs. That parody of slim shady is GREAT!

    Admiral what is the sound of Rammstein? Is it metal sounding or like techno? I don't have aversion to international music, I like music from all over the world.

    Here's one of my favorites in Italian;

    AVE MARIA

    Ave Maria
    gratia plena
    dominus tecum,
    virgo serena.

    Ave, cuius conceptio,
    solemni plena gaudio,
    coelestia terrestria
    nova replet laetitia.

    Ave, cuius nativitas
    nostra fuit solemnitas,
    ut lucifer lux oriens
    verum solem praeveniens.

    Ave, pia humilitas,
    sine viro fecunbitas,
    cuius annuntiatio
    nostra fuit salvatio.

    Ave, vera virginitas,
    immaculata castitas,
    cuius purificatio
    nostra fuit purgatio.

    Ave, praeclara omnibus
    angelicis virtutibus,
    cuius assumptio
    nostra glorificatio.

    O mater Dei,
    memento mei. Amen.

    It's Industrial. I just thought that, because of your heritage, you might not want something sung in German.

    If you're gonna try Rammstein, I recommend Links 234 (Left 234), Sonne (Sun), Mutter (Mother), Du Hast (You Have), Alter Mann (Old Man), or Hallelujah.

    Let's see your name is Sir Admiral CONFLICT!!! You always want to get things boiling I see. I don't mind German music so quit saying all that jazz!! I will listen to Rammstien and see what they sound like! :)

    Industrial? Like Trent Reznor from nine inch nails? That is true industrial music although I have lost a taste for that music some time ago.(I grew up ;) ) Its ok to listen to once in awhile.

    How about this lovely piece from the Musical Les Miserables??

    ONE DAY MORE


    VALJEAN
    One day more!
    Another day, another destiny.
    This never-ending road to Calvary;
    These men who seem to know my crime
    Will surely come a second time.
    One day more!

    MARIUS
    I did not live until today.
    How can I live when we are parted?

    VALJEAN
    One day more.

    MARIUS & COSETTE
    Tomorrow you'll be worlds away
    And yet with you, my world has started!

    EPONINE
    One more day all on my own.

    MARIUS & COSETTE
    Will we ever meet again?

    EPONINE
    One more day with him not caring.

    MARIUS & COSETTE
    I was born to be with you.

    EPONINE
    What a life I might have known.

    MARIUS & COSETTE
    And I swear I will be true!

    EPONINE
    But he never saw me there!

    ENJOLRAS
    One more day before the storm!

    MARIUS
    Do I follow where she goes?

    ENJOLRAS
    At the barricades of freedom.

    MARIUS
    Shall I join my brothers there?

    ENJOLRAS

    I fail to see how I am "getting things boiling."

    Call me uncultured, but I hate plays.

    uncultured you are, young padawan learner(Star Wars), ;)
    Actually Les Miserables is a musical not a play. A play usually is with verbal jargon without music. Musicals on the other hand are plays with music and so lovely at that! Opera is ok but that is when I start to fall asleep sometimes. I Luvvv [face_love] musicals and orchestras! Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Gentlemen Prefer blondes and there are more I really like and have seen. It is only in Europe right now but the next one I want to see is "Notre Dame de Paris." I hear its great! :)

    Here's a song from Phantom of the Opera;
    (Interesting musical based on the real Opera house in Paris from the 1800's with a real lake under the opera house where a phantom is believed to have lived)

    Music of the Night
    -----------------------
    I have brought you,
    To the seat of sweet music's throne.
    To this kiningdom where all must pay homage to music-
    Music.

    You have come here,
    For one purpose, and one alone.
    Since the moment I first heard you sing,
    I have needed you with me
    To serve me,
    To sing,
    For my music.
    My music.

    Night-time sharpens, heightens each sensation.
    Darkness stirs
    And wakes imagination.
    Silently the senses
    Abandon their defences.

    Slowly, gently, night unfurls it's splendor.
    Grasp it, sense it--
    Tremulous and tender.
    Turn your face away
    From the garish light of day,
    Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light.
    And listen to the Music of the Night.

    Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams.
    Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before.
    Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar.

    And you'll live as you've never lived before.

    Soflty, deftly, music shall surround you.
    Feel it, hear it closing in around you.
    Open up your mind,
    Let your fantasies unwind
    In this darkness which you know you cannot fight--
    The darkness of the music of the night.

    Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world.
    Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.
    Let your soul take you where you long to be.

    Only then can you belong to me.

    Floating, falling,
    Sweet intoxication.
    Touch me,
    Trust me,
    Savour each sensation.
    Let the Dream begin,
    Let your darker side give in
    To the power of the music that I write.
    The power of the music of the night.

    You alone can make my song take flight.
    Help me make
    The music of the night.

    I'm not avoiding the subject of musicals, but I did want to share the mission of POD (they're my favourite band).

    The reason some people wonder about POD's Christianity is because of their popularity in the secular music market. Truth be known, the message of POD is definitely Christian, but it's not orthodox. POD reaches the crowd that regular Christian music can't. They play for the crowd who's bands have demons and darkness as their logos. POD plays the same kind of music in the same atmosphere and portrays a hardcore Jesus instead.

    Some people don't like the way that POD portrays Christ, but TOUGH LUCK! POD has a better ministry to that particular crowd than I have ever seen in my life, and to me, that is all that matters.

    EDIT: That wasn't totally out of nowhere. It was in response to Lady_Lucas' previous comment on POD.

    While you all seem to be in that religion thing..


    Disturbed
    - Prayer -

    another dream that will never come true
    just to compliment your sorrow
    another life that i?ve taken from you
    a gift to add on to your pain and suffering
    another truth you can never believe
    has crippled you completely
    all the cries you?re beginning to hear
    trapped in your mind, and the sound is deafening

    let me enlighten you
    this is the way i pray

    (chorus)
    living just isn?t hard enough
    burn me alive, inside
    living my life?s not hard enough
    take everything away

    another nightmare about to come true
    will manifest tomorrow
    another love that i?ve taken from you
    lost in time, on the edge of suffering
    another taste of the evil i breed
    will level you completely
    bring to life everything that you fear
    live in the dark, and the world is threatening

    let me enlighten you
    this is the way i pray

    (chorus)

    return to me
    leave me no one
    turn to me
    return to me
    cast aside

    you?ve made me turn away

    And another one..


    Iced Earth

    - Angels Holocaust -


    As I walk through the blackened forest
    Thoughts of hate and anger fill my soul
    The charred remains of the holy rollers
    Scream repentance though it's far too late

    I fight back the laughter at what I see
    The suffering healers false destined prophecy

    He didn't think yesterday of the end of his life
    The brainwashed fools born again of a thousand lies

    Hate filled screams break the silence
    Terrifying dreams filling up your head
    Blasphemy thrusting out, in the masses it reigns
    The mask of hypocrisy is slowly unveiled

    Fear the angels holocaust, they're screaming
    Dreams of pain forever entering your head
    Death and hatred loathing, on mankind it feeds
    Earth is dead and gone now, we've brought it to an end

    For the last time I've been betrayed
    Never again will I subject myself to this hypocrisy
    Something is drawing me to the other side
    Only time will tell my true destiny

    Iced Earth made another song as well.. but I don't think I'll post it in here, since we have a theological student among us.... it's rather let's say.. involved with the latest stories of pedophilia in the US, heck, the guys are Americans but that song was published in 1999
