Here are a few links to that are songs I've written that have very unschooling themes, or themes of freedom etc... some are for the kids and some are for the parents and some are for both..
the fist that comes to mind is this song i wrote based on John Berryman's poem "The Ball Poem." It's something naomi and I have listened to a lot (she did a version which i'll also post below!). It is about a boy who loses his ball in the harbor... it seems to help naomi whenever we lose things or don't get what we want... instead of freaking out about it, we listen to this and it really helps... of course we talk about what it all means, and how loss is part of life and we also meditate and talk about ways to deal with these hard feelings... it's just a really good and fun springboard song...
all the other songs on my demo page, (http://www.jacobmusic.com/demos)
which are demos, so excuse the quality of some of it,
are about being free, letting go, being here now...
all themes i associate strongly with our path
i wonder if there are any songs you guys have used or gotten inspiration
from on the path of opening up to freedom and unschooling...
There's always Pink Floyd's "The Wall"....the unschooling theme song of all time.
I love Amy Steinberg's "Exactly" and Danny Schmidt's "Company of Friends". Then there's the wonderful "You Learn " by Alanis Morrisette.
All good stuff. There are many more but that's off the top of my head. I'll have to go check your links out.
Jimmy Buffett wrote a song about his then 4yr old daughter called "Delany Talks to Statues" that is really nice, it aptly captures the innocent life of a child and her free spirited dad. I don't think he knows about unschooling, but he's gotta be a fun dad to have! I found the lyrics here: http://www.allthelyrics.com/lyrics/jimmy_buffett/delaney_talks_to_s...
He also wrote a song for his older daughter Savannah when she was about the same age called "Little Miss Magic," but I think it lacks the creativity he put into Delany's song years later!
David Bowie has a song called "Kooks" that is very sweet. I love it because even for a new baby to join the family is phrased as a choice ("Will you stay in our lover's story?"), and it says "if you ever have to go to school" and "we'll throw the homework on the fire" *grin* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=339ixMtHrVk
"People Got to Be Free" by the Young Rascals is good too, although some of the lyrics are odd ("I'll do unto you as you do unto me" sounds like retaliation more than peace), but singing the chorus definitely feels good! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjX_dV8Qk_M
