“Battle Flag” by Lo Fidelity Allstars featuring Pigeonhed is the Song of the Day
Video Posted on Updated on
I first heard “Battle Flag” in the late 1990s as a club mix. It was originally written as an homage to Prince by Pigeonhed and remixed and recorded by Lo Fidelity Allstars. The beat and a few of the lyrics stuck with me. However, it was not until I heard it on the episode of “ER” where Dr. Carter (Noah Wylie) meets, and is stabbed by, a Schizophrenic patient that it grabbed me.
Then, I heard it on an episode of The Sopranos and was thrilled when they included on one of their show soundtracks. It has become one of my get-up-and-MOVE jams.
The song starts off with a bang and just keeps going. Here are the first few lines:
Smells of corruption
I manipulate to recreate
This air to ground saga
Gotta launder my karma
Gotta launder my karma, indeed. Great advice for all of us. Wave your own battle flag!

Ohhh I like it. And the pic about being careful. I quote that to the kids all the time.

It’s such a great jam! I have the uncensored version, but you can still get the energy of the song in the posted version.
Have a great weekend, Rebecca!
