Inspired by the 2004 presidential election, Land of the Free was performed with Wendy Boulding at the Department of Peace Campaign's New York City rallies in 2005.  It also foreshadowed the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

Wendy Boulding's lyrics and melody for Adam Levin's music in So Alive were written during -- and inspired by -- the New York City Marathon.

As Young as I'm Old was originally conceived as a musical tribute to Gentle Giant (and includes two brief quotes from their song Memories of Old Days.)  A vocal rendition is featured on the 2006 artists' compilation CD Giant for Another Hour as well as the CD Blissful Behemoth (also on this site).
