Subject: Fahrenheit 451-The LAST Song
From: catspaw49
Date: 25 Aug 00 - 07:46 PM

Do you remember the movie Fahrenheit 451? It told the story of a future culture who burned all the books, 451 degrees being the kindling temp of paper. The "rebels" in the story lived out and away from the city and each member memorized a book to pass on to future generations until perhaps the time came when things would change.

So here's the deal...............

All music is outlawed and we are the rebels here at the Mudcat. Many of us know more than one song obviously, but we must be secretive to avoid attack and the loss of our little colony.......SO........Each one is responsible to know and perform ONE SONG to pass on, including its history and significance and meaning. This does NOT have to be the most significant song of all time, just one YOU feel should be kept alive.

GOOD LUCK FELLOW REBELS....AND MAY THE SONG BE WITH YOU!!!

I love the concept here 'Spaw.

One song is pretty difficult, but I'll stake my claim on Doc's version of Deep River Blues which is a derivative of Rabon and Alton Delmore's Big River Blues.

Doc's early flatpicking was inspired by Rabon's hot lead playing on a tenor guitar (a Martin O-17T I believe) and over time he adapted it into the fingerpicking classic "Deep River Blues". I think this is one worth preserving and I think I may have to put a version of Doc performing it (vocals and all) on a micro CD, (concealed in my key chain) because nothing can mimic the voice he lends to this song.

I'd like to pick a zipper song. Specifically, "We Shall Not Be Moved." In carrying this song forward to future generations, a concept of lyric substitution would be passed along and of course, the inherent message of peaceful unification and demonstration for equality is a most compelling and powerful reason for my selection.

I really like this. Kind of a premptive time capsule.

Well, it might seem simplistic, but one I know I will never forget and that people would always have a need for, at least in their hearts, is the Prairie Lullaby...kids will still need to be sung to sleep and rock-a-byed, I hope...

Very KEWL idea and thread, Spaw. Do we get to come back with second suggestions and, uh-oh, were we supposed to be in character? That would be fun...

I am out in the middle of the former state of Why-Oh-Myn....now a vast wasteland, with dead drilling rigs and ghosttowns littering the horizon. Nothing stirs, no buffalo left, not even a horned toad lizard.

A few of us live up against the mountains in the quartz crystal caves which survived...we venture out for food gathering and once in a while to meet with those from other outposts, once we've decided they are safe to meet.

Then, we have a small feast around the campfires burning and we post guards to watch the skies for those who seek to destroy our knowledge. In low tones, we each go round, intoning the words of pasts forgotten by most, remembered and passed on by the few...tonight I start off with the soft lilt of the lully my mother always sang to me...Tumble in bed, my tired little sleepyhead...

A chill runs through the gathering as we hear a whirr in the distance. We hurry to cover the fires and run for the caves, the last vibrations of the tunes shimmering in the air, then dropping down to almost inaudible whispers of ancestors telling us to "remember..don't let the songs die."

I wasn't a big fan of the movie either Bill as it had a third Reich about it as you say...but that's what made the concept here so interesting to me. We've done lots of lists, b this doesn't have to be the best or most significant song...maybe just a pretty one or one with some "learning" orusefulness in it....no criteria at all. And how would you feel if you were assigned a nice Oasis tune? (DON'T JUMP MEEBO---ITS A JOKE)

Members of future generations are bound to sometimes want to feel the blues deep down in their souls. If we keep one nice hard driving blues song alive, then many more are bound to follow. After all, the blues is all about expression. Once you have it inside of you, some it's gonna need to get out. There are many I could choose here, but how about Little Walter's "Blues With A Feeling."

Gee, Spaw, you put me on the spot. I mean, I've been a Bradbury fan since I was eight, and this is very important to me. Two songs came to my head right off, and now I can't think of any others. It always happens that way to me. When I'm called upon to say something profound, my head fills up with only the most inane ideas.
So, I'm just going to sit back and listen, because the only songs in my head right now are these:
Now it's time to say goodbye
To all our company...
M-I-C-K-E-Y...
M-O-U-S-E.
And the other one is:
Why-o, why-o, why-o
Why did I EVER leave Ohio...
Oh, and the other one that's clogging my head right now is this one (click). I warned you.

Okay, I'm going to remember "Song Of My Hands" and teach it to my children and their children. I think Paul Robeson used to sing it though I've never found a recording. It does appear to be included in the Bear (#15720) 10 CD boxed set called "Songs For Political Action" available through Camsco. The artist there is Bernie Asbel. I'll buy the set as soon as I come up with a spare (USD)251.30. Of course those will all be destroyed, that's why I have to remember the song.

Mine would probably have to be "We Have Fed You All For A Thousand Years" by an unknown proletarian....with this fourth verse added:

Now we hide from you within the caves
For you try to kill our past,
To hide the truth from yourselves
That our songs will all outlast
The money, the power, and the tyranny
In the offices where you stand!
If blood be the price of your oppressive wealth
Good God! We have bought it grand.

Yes, I know it is a weak ending but it is a folksong and very liable to change....

I am away performing at an Irish Music Festival, with a side trip to a birthday gathering for the 80 year old matriarch of a wonderful Irish family this weekend.

Well, I'm beginning to get an order to our song circle here. I think Rick has the leadoff tune, an excellent choice. I think 'Gin goes next perhaps with a song that does kinda' get to the heart of this. I dunno' WHERE we put Joe.........

And yes, I do admit to some shameless toadying here as I did write to a few and mention this in PM's to others that I would value their take on this...and I DO!!!

Its a silly thread, but it says a lot about an individuals personality and thought processes too, not to mention tastes. Again though, I don't know what to think about Joe, except that he seems to be in company with Karen. When I mentioned this one to her, she had the same reaction and the only one she could think of was "Happy Birthday."

I nearly went for 'Summertime' from Porgy and Bess but it should really be a song from my own tradition, so I'll take 'The Gartan Mother's Lullaby', full as it is of Celtic imagery and the spirit world, with many a story to tell if time allows.

Now this thread should be made into a book!!

Well , Spaw - I think I'd want to grab "This Land Is Your Land" for the following reasons. First it celibrates the beauty of nature. Next it would remind the corporations exactly who is the real owners of this land { no one and everyone }. And certainly because the song has the gift of the sing along chorus. That's a power not to be underestimated.

I love Bradbury, but F451's the one book I dislike. Probably because it's on so many required reading lists, and it just isn't his best long novel. (Something Wicked This Way Comes!)

But for songs, I'll take "Simple Gifts". What an opportunity to talk about religion, history and Aaron Copland! Can we save variants, too?

The first song I thought of was "Wild Mountain Thyme" for its sheer singability. I'm still working on one that I should learn because of the meaning in the words. One that no one else has picked, that is...

451 is a good book----a bit of a romantic stretch to have guys/folks (men/women/whatever) all wandering in the snow at the end (of the film) reciting their book---Is that being an individual within the community ? But my favorite volume of that type has to be Earth Abides by George R. Stewart.

That said, the one song I'd memorize would be one that could transport me into a world I wish I'd been a part of.

well..... with mixed feelings... i will commit to pass along .. in the post musical world..... in some candle lit basement... Four Strong Winds.. ( Ian Tyson) why mixed? ..... well remember Tom Hanks in Volunteers fearing that some Peace Corps Type ...would burst into Kumbaya... Well ,.. in Canada .. you couldnt go anywhere for about 20 years.. without some "folkie" doing the mandatory song.. i am sure ...as welcome as one more version of Blowin' in the Wind.. But..in the last couple of years.. i have dared to perform it.. and it still touches the winsome nerve..located directly behind the heart strings. ( but just for the record... the winds dont blow all that awesomely cold out in Alberta... ) Serf in Toronto

Springsteen's "The River" because it was the first song that made me cry. It is a song that evokes a particular time in US history, but also speaks to universal themes. Also because it reminds me of my youth, only we all went to a reservoir instead of a river...

I have a question, Spaw. Will we be able to communicate with each other to be sure there aren't duplications? It would be depressing to venture out from the caves to find that everybody in the song circle I was in memorized "Ooops, I Did it Again", :-)or some other soon to be classic. But I don't want to have to out think the obscurity angle.
