Battle of New Orleans

17 posts in this topic

I was searching YouTube for some old classic songs/videos, and stumbled upon this great Lego video of the Battle of New Orleans. The song is sung by Johnny Horton and it's perfect for the Lego battle. Take a look:

This is something I would have made if I were talended in the video arena.

It's nicely done and a bit funny.

What I like most about this particular video is the combination of the music and the Lego minifigs. I love how the drummers are in sync with the music. The alligator scene is pretty good as well.

Don't get too attached to Johny Horton, he has some really good songs but he also has some songs that no American should be proud of. He was a very racist man. :( It just sends the wrong opinions of Americans when you hear over half of his songs are about killing black people. :(

I have liked this tune since I was a kid though...

plus animation = awesome

I'm certainly no expert on Johnny Horton (just know this one song), but according to Wikipedia this statement is based on mistaken association of the singer Johnny Horton, of "Battle of New Orleans", with the singer Johnny Rebel, who is, apparently a Klan member/racist/originater of the songs you may be referring to.

On my webspace, for example:

Johnny Horton - The Battle Of New Orleans

Johnny Horton - The Battle Of New Orleans (British Version)

(right-click and "save as")

Enjoy ;-)

I had never heard the British version Hobbes. It sounds so much like the American, that it's hard to tell them apart- aside from the lyrics. I have to say that I doubt the Americans ran though. ;-)

Wow. The British have a very high opinion of themselves, considering they LOST that battle. "The fired once more and the rebels began a runnin', all the way down to the gulf of Mexico." Unfortunatley, we didn't, in fact, they did. Plus, That would require running through the british lines to get there...

I was quite aware of that.

Because, he wanted to be able to sell the song in England, and so he did, and got some money in his pockets.
