Excerpt from The Old Man and the Harley by John J. Newkirk:
Copland wrote the fanfare for the ordinary American—for those “doing all the dirty work in the war.” He wrote it for the defenders of Wake Island, Dutch Harbor, and Bataan—for Rosie the Riveter, the families planting victory gardens, and for a group of colored men in Tuskegee, Alabama, who wanted to show the world they could fly. He wrote it for an underpaid professor in New York who solved the vibration problems in the B-17’s superchargers, for a group of Navaho Indians who’d become codetalkers, for the Virginia Jane Dunhams of the world who gave their men even more reason to come home alive—and for that handful of men who gave their lives protecting thousands of unknown Chinese. Aaron Copland wrote his fanfare for the millions of Americans who, rather than fixating on their differences, focused instead on what they had in common.

That, quite honestly, gave me chills. Thank you for posting.

This is an amazing creation by one who I am given to understand is the writer of the song.

I had the privilege of communicating for awhile with Henriette Andersen - one of the female singers of the Danish trio known as The Fireflies who recorded this song.

I absolutely love this thing. The fact that it was written by an unknown songwriter totally boggles my mind.

The Fireflies version (Henriette is the willowy blonde)

@Levi
OMG! I had forgotten all about that post it was so long ago *LOL*

Yes, you have certainly repaid any debt you may have felt you owed by posting Copland's Fanfare For The Common Man.

Below is a link to the post I made so long ago to which you refer in the event anyone wishes to see it ...

Yeah, I pretty much love this song.

Nobody Knows Me by Lyle Lovett
And I like cream in my coffee
And I like to sleep late on Sundays
And nobody knows me like my baby.
