On This Day in 1836 . . .


Yep, today is the 174th anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo. So here are four of my favorite Alamo tunes. The first two have been recorded many times, but I like these versions best (so far).

I have to ask your help on the last one. I took the required semester of French in college, and hated it so much I kicked my textbook back and forth from class. Therefore, I don't have a clue what Johnny Madsen is singing (other than invoking the name of Davy Crockett). Can anyone enlighten me?

"Remember the Alamo" by Willie Nelson

"Ballad of the Alamo" by Brian Burns

"Alamo" by Lorne Greene
