The chilling songs do exist. A few active and dedicated members here, that know me, are aware that this is a strange not so newsy fact.
In 2004 I started a thread at Daily Snopes operated by the Mickelsons. You know it as the on line home for urban legends. I thought this chilling compilation would qualify as an urban legend. The Daily Snopes' qualifier says some are true, some are false and some are undetermined either way.
I titled it "America's first song of inspiration after 9/11"
When the posts went past 30 it morphed off topic into songs that reminded the members of 9/11/01.
Here is the archived snopes link and my handle was Coal Glow Kidd, Evansville, IN. I have the song described in my first snopes post. The Fox Mulder of rock and roll mysteries R. Gary Patterson had never heard about it until I relayed the news to him. The people who put this together picked Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell" as their compilation's background music.
Grr! This old link is acting up again. It's not starting at post #1! It begins about the spot where members bring in their ideas of songs that connected with them on that day we'll never forget! I will see what I can do to get post #1 back on line even if I have to post it in here.
Put on your thinking cap now! Being brief it starts out with a preacher's fiery sermon, a U.S. Marine recites "This is My Rifle" and it closes with George C. Scott as General George Patton speaking his lines on stage to inspire his troops in the movie "Patton". The whole song was a chiller unlike so many songs that came after it.
Question # 1 Do you remember hearing America's first song to inspire us after the dastardly, cowardly, suicidal attacks in New York City, Washington D.C. and the failed attack shut down by the heroes of United Flight 93 over Shankville, Pennsylvania.
Question # 2 Are you aware of any music that sadly fits 9/11? Please list the songs you've thought about that seem to sync up to that terrible day. Please embed them and tell us the parallels that stood out to you.
On You Tube hundreds of songs have been chosen as tributes to the World Trade Center's senseless tragedy. The views are in the multi millions now!
I was so surprised that no snopes members could say they heard what I heard in early October of 2001!
