Music for Eagle Ceremony

Recommended Posts

One song I came across in planning my son's eagle ceremony was the acoustic version of Sammy Hagar's "Where Eagles Fly". It is actually a song about his birth, but it has good elements for the occasion I think, and it can be couple with a video of an eagle flying, landscapes, etc if you want to jazz things up a bit.

Of for a bit more country flair, Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd

 

Mama told me, when I was young

Come sit beside me, my only son

And listen closely, to what I say.

And if you do this

It will help you some sunny day.

 

Ohh take your time... Don't live too fast,

Troubles will come, and they will pass.

Go find a woman and you'll find love,

And don't forget son,

There is someone up above.

 

(Chorus)

And be a simple kind of man.

And maybe some day you'll love and understand.

Baby be a simple kind of man.

Won't you do this for me son,

If you can?

 

Forget your lust for the rich man's gold

All that you need is in your soul,

And you can do this if you try.

All that I want for you my son,

Is to be satisfied.

 

(Chorus)

 

Boy, don't you worry... you'll find yourself.

Follow you heart and nothing else.

And you can do this if you try.

All I want for you my son,

Is to be satisfied.

LOL, I just noticed this discussion began in 2004. Some great suggestions for music. Another movie that had a lot of great music for a retrospective is The Natural. Not a great movie, IMHO, but the prologue and other segments are great musical backgrounds. Check this one.

I used Simple Man (along with 2 others which escape me) at my son's second to last Den meeting. Kleenex all around.
