Log Driver's Waltz
The song is nice enough, perhaps a little unintended but sweet double entendre. But what grabbed me is the footage at the beginning. It humbles me. I think of the men and women who built the nations that occupy this continent, going back several generations. The sheer physical competence of those people makes me feel small and unaccomplished. We really do stand on the shoulders of giants.
