Hymn

Post by Ice Wewe » Wed Oct 26, 2005 1:40 am

BZFlag,
it's the best way to frag,
becareful not to brag,
'cause here comes lag!

WARNING:

too much playing may cause your eye lids to sag,
but you've got it in the bag,
you can't believe your eyes,
it's the one you despise,
it's number one,
he is the king of fun,
it's time to rock,
time to knock, (him off his throne)
time to frag,
guess what? its BZFlag!


(just a 5 minute work of mine, hope you like it...) :wink:

there was a good suggestion at another thread for a bz related song (hymn):
The Purple Panzer wrote:In the movie "The Battle of the Bulge" there is a "Panzer Anthem"; somewhere I have an MP3 of it (you can probably find one on the web pretty easily; I'll attach it if I can find it.) I think this was an older song that was given new lyrics - that's another option, find an old military march or such, and hold a lyrics contest, so we could write some game-appropriate verses. *Somebody* out there might be persuaded to record it.

The lyrics in English are:

In blizzard or storm,
Or in sun warm and bright,
The day hot as hell
Or bone-chilling be the night,
Our faces may with dust be laid,
But spirits never fade,
No, never fade;
Relentless, our tank
Thunders out on a raid.

With engines a-howling,
Fast as is the wind,
We head for the foe,
Safe, as we're in armor skinned.
Our comrades still behind us roam;
We fight the foe alone,
Yes, fight alone.
We stab through the line
To break the foes backbone.

Whenever the foe
May appear in our sight,
We'll ram throttle full,
Then we'll humble all his might!
Of what use is our life if we
Our country serve freely?
Yes, serve freely!
To die for our country,
Our honour shall be.

With tank traps and mines,
Our foe tries to impede.
We laugh at his ruses;
We know he'll not suceed.
And when, in threat, his cannons stand,
Half hidden in the sand,
Yes, in the sand,
We can find our way
Over much safer land.

And should at long last,
Fickle Lady Luck leave,
And we remain here,
Leaving family to grieve,
A bullet with our name on it,
Find us and seal our fate,
Yes, seal our fate,
Our tank will our grave be
On that final date.

The lyrics in German are:

1. Ob's stürmt oder schneit,
Ob die Sonne uns lacht,
Der Tag glühend heiß
Oder eiskalt die Nacht.
Bestaubt sind die Gesichter,
Doch froh ist unser Sinn,
Ist unser Sinn;
Es braust unser Panzer
Im Sturmwind dahin.

2. Mit donnernden Motoren,
Geschwind wie der Blitz,
Dem Feinde entgegen,
Im Panzer geschützt.
Voraus den Kameraden,
Im Kampf steh'n wir allein,
Steh'n wir allein,
So stoßen wir tief
In die feindlichen Reihn.

3. Wenn vor uns ein feindliches
Heer dann erscheint,
Wird Vollgas gegeben
Und ran an den Feind!
Was gilt denn unser Leben
Für unsres Reiches Heer?
Ja Reiches Heer?
Für Deutschland zu sterben
Ist uns höchste Ehr.

4. Mit Sperren und Minen
Hält der Gegner uns auf,
Wir lachen darüber
Und fahren nicht drauf.
Und droh'n vor uns Geschütze,
Versteckt im gelben Sand,
Im gelben Sand,
Wir suchen uns Wege,
Die keiner sonst fand.

5. Und läßt uns im Stich
Einst das treulose Glück,
Und kehren wir nicht mehr
Zur Heimat zurück,
Trifft uns die Todeskugel,
Ruft uns das Schicksal ab,
Ja Schicksal ab,
Dann wird uns der Panzer
Ein ehernes Grab.

I don't know about a hymn, per se, but a theme song might be interesting. For example, it may be music that plays when you first start BZFlag prior to selecting a server and logging in.

Yes, I think a march would be appropriate. Hopefully, it wouldn't be something cheesey like the theme to <A HREF="http://www.timvp.com/gomer.html">Gomer Pyle</A>. Maybe something along the lines of <A HREF="http://www.tv-timewarp.co.uk/midi_files ... d">Hogan's Heroes</A>? :P

I imagine romfis meant something closer to what most native English speakers would call an "anthem" as opposed to what we generally consider a "hymn". Originally both referred to both music sung as part of a religious service, and a particular style of music. If you look at a list of national anthems, you'll note that many of them are titled Hymns (an example that springs to mind is that the Mexicans refer to their national anthem, "Mexicanos, al grito de guerra" as "Himno Nacional Mexicano").

wouldn't it be funny if when you first spawn into a BZ server , you'd hear that lil pac-man jingle . lol

or something catchy like that?


or you could go the skeery-moody route an have Halo-ish background music when your in the menu/options screen .

1 vote for Ice Wewe's version. if put to good and appropriate theme music, it could be played on match start/end and/or on flag caps.
Games don't make people violent, lag does.

heres my attempt at making a rap for bzflag:

It's bzflag, anyone mwho doesnt play is a %^&
If you got too much lag, the server will make you gag
because it doesnt allow lag. but thats ok you still got me.
sometimes you will have too pee. then you will have to pause.
making yourself the cause -- of death. cause when you spawn,
you will get "pawned" by nightmare.
but do not fear, when death is near
-------------------------- this is where i kind of trail off in the rap...------->
because you will get as many lifes as you want
unless you decide to taunt!
If you are going driving around in dub
and you see a small shrub
dont hesitate!
terminate!
the person driving in the tank
because it is Frank
he will kill you if you dont shoot him
and if he shoots you, you'll die
then you will quit and make a pie -- with your mom
cause this is bzflag, where we dont allow lag!
