Take Up Your Shield Steve Rogers -idiopathicsmile

idiopathicsmile:

So I figured it would be kind of fun to go through all the songs that have been written about Steve Rogers and do a series of covers, like a study in shifting perspectives of an American icon through the years?

Kicking things off with an old-school folk song. Download here, lyrics mostly under the cut, historical notes at the end.

Lyrics:

Little Steve Rogers never had the knack
of running from a fight ‘fore it was done
stood up to any bully even when they’d knock him flat
he’d rush in to defend ‘most anyone

So take up your shield, Steve Rogers
Take up your shield tonight
Take up your shield, Steve Rogers
There’s wrongs out there that need some settin’ right

so @paticmak made this lovely drawing/animation of “poe singing space folk songs to the other resistance pilots” and then @soemily activated the SPACE-SIGNALING BEACON OF WRITE A SPACE FOLK SONG

this one turned out like 50% space folk song, 50% blindsided by poe dameron feelings. (surely you, the internet, understand.)

Howling Commandos! Theme Song – idiopathicsmile

idiopathicsmile:

Okay so who do I have to bribe for fanart of the super cheesy 90’s era Howling Commandos children’s cartoon that TOTALLY 100% would’ve existed within the Marvel movie-verse?

And would it help if I wrote a theme song?

Howling Commandos! Howling Commandos!
Evil fears just one name: Howling Commandos!
Good is gonna win the game: Howling Commandos!

(Roll call!)

First Captain America, the leader of the pack! (Cap: This way!)
Second, Sergeant Bucky Barnes who always has his back! (Bucky: Aye aye!)
Montgomery and Dum Dum, they’re a team that can’t be beat! (Dum Dum: Tally ho!)
Add Jacques and Gabe and Morita and now the crew’s complete! (Gabe: Righteous!)

They’re gonna go that extra mile,
now Red Skull’s in a bind
So grab your shield, don’t touch that dial—
it’s gonna be a…howling…good time!

#In the cartoon they also have a talking pet wolf named Betsy Ross #It’s an ‘educational’ show so every other week one of the commandos learns the importance of teamwork #captain america #howling commandos #it was canceled after ten episodes but the wolf got her own spinoff series (via @idiopathicsmile)
