This week, Space Force released an official song, “Semper Supra,” named for its motto, which in Latin means “always on top.”

Since its formation in 2019, the US Space Force has named its service members Guardians, created the emblem with a future silver bronze, and released uniforms with dark blue jackets. to evoke the vastness of space.

Complete with cymbals and soaring lyrics praising the force’s heavenly mission, the song is the creation of two former service members – one a singer-songwriter, the other a arrangers – who have collaborated for months to create a musical composition that inspires pride and teamwork.

Professor Camus, author of “Military Music of the American Revolution”, also questioned the lyrics. “I don’t want to use the word ‘ridiculous,’ but come on,” he said. “It really promotes patriotism to the point where I wonder: do people believe in it?”

The branch, despite its name, is not focused on sending its members into space, but on training and equipping them to launch and operate satellites. However, the lyrics are mainly based on otherworldly images. Not everyone listens to the song. James Davis, a professor of music at the State University of New York in Fredonia who studies Civil War music and musicians, has a more favorable view.
