Music With An Ayn Rand Connection
Lengthy selection of songs and other musical pieces together with short explanations of their relation to Ayn Rand and recordings (in RealAudio format), plus pictures of various New York City buildings (Rand admired the city's skyline)
"When I was in my early 20s I discovered and became an admirer of the writings of Ayn Rand - the author of the philosophically provoking best selling novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. A few years later, I was amused to learn that Rand enjoyed a type of turn of the century popular music that she called 'Tiddlywink Music.' Of course, there is no such formally recognized musical genre. 'Tiddlywink' seems to have been the name that Ayn Rand gave to music that she responded to in a certain way."

Gil's Libertarian Mix Tape, by Gil Guillory, 6 Jan 2007
Includes lyrics to the 18 selected songs; broken into categories of Economics (five songs), Fight the Man (four), Omnipotent Government (6) and The Promise of Freedom (four)
"Some of the unwritten rules of making a mix tape are: - songs must be good - tapes are limited to about 90 min running time - try to pick songs that are unlikely to have been heard by the listener - tell a story or pick a theme - track sequencing is important — must have good flow - the selections should reflect your personality. Doing my best to adhere to these rules, I present my own libertarian mix tape below. The point is to demonstrate and explain libertarian ideas, so I will comment on or explain each song."

NewH.L. Mencken: The Joyous Libertarian, by Murray N. Rothbard, New Individualist Review: 1961-1968, Jun 1962
Examines the themes and style in Mencken's writings, mainly from the self-selected pieces in A Mencken Chrestomathy
"If Mencken was not a nihilist, what positive values did he hold? ... They included a life-long passion for music. ... Let us take, for example, such a supposedly 'non-political' field as folk-music. It is not accidental that both the Socialist Left and the Nationalist Right—those twin enemies of individualism—in our century have made a virtual fetish of the 'people's' folk-song. Mencken cut to the heart of the matter in his inimitable review of Dr. Louise Pound's Poetic Origins and the Ballad ..."
