[music |ndtrack - 10 - Glory - Charging Fort Wagner]

Under just odd bits of trivia.
While looking up the orignal lyrics for Colonel Bogey song on a whim (known better as the Whistling tune in the movie The Bridge over the River Kwai or in Breakfast club. I came across these rather obscene diddy sung by soldiers and englishmen back in WW II. God I love GI's and British sense of humor sometimes hehehe

Hitler (Has Only Got One Ball...)
Tune: Colonel Bogey March (River Kwai Theme)

Hitler has only got one ball,
Goering has two but they are small
Has something simmler
But Goebels has no balls at all.

*sigh* This of course was while I was again attempting to locate lyrics to Charging Fort Wagner a song from the Glory sountrack. The structure of the song is very similar to O fortuna from Carmina Burana and Duel of the Fates from Star Wars Ep I. It's a great song and you've probably heard it outside the movie in commercials. I finally made some headway and did Identify some Latin words in there from a few passages of the Requiem Mass. Maybe I should have taken Latin instead of German. Honestly German is not all that wholly suited for lyrics such as these. Of course nowadays everybody seems interested in Sanskrit instead of latin, hey what can I say it sounds great in Star Wars and The Matrix

Anyways some headway made maybe i should take latin just so I can understand this and O fortune without having to look at the lyrics pages especially since I'm hampered by the lack of ability to properly pronounce many of the latin words

c'est la vie

I took 5 years of Latin, so I may be able to help a little, I've got a Latin-English dictionary if you want it. Or I can try to translate for you if you want, but you'd have to give me some time.

Mmmm... James Horner... I always wondered what the choir was singing during "Charging Fort Wagner." I kept thinking I heard something like "sweet and peaceful.... something." Minus the "something," of course.
