The Music Of L. Ron Hubbard

It’s little known that L. Ron Hubbard left behind a body of musical compositions, lyrics, and sound experiments intended as a soundtrack for the Battlefield Earth series and to promote the ethos of Scientology. John Travolta, teenybopper heartthrob Leif Garrett, and Frank Stallone, all heard singing below, were part of a Scientology super-group who recorded an album of Hubbard-penned songs in 1986. An odder, alternate version of “Road to Freedom” features L. Ron himself crooning in a low, booming voice, with the track retitled “L’Envoi, Thank You for Listening.”

Two stanzas include: You are not mind or chemicals / You don’t even have a form / You’re in a trap of senseless lies / It’s time to be reborn. / To you there is no limit / Knowledge is your key / Take the route of auditing / And once again be free.

    Unfortunately, the road to freedom is a toll road.

  4. You are not mind or chemicals
    You don’t even have a form
    You’re in a
    trap of senseless lies
    It’s time to be reborn.

    To you there is no
    limit
    Knowledge is your key
    Take the route of auditing
    And give me your money.

  9. Okay…

    Third-rate synth music done at a middling pace, with horns to add in the small bit of soul these songs have.

    Now I remember why people found the eighties tacky….

  11. I picture Beck, Chick Corea, Mark Isham and Edgar Winter in a room making some really happening music when, suddenly, David Miscavige bursts in and yells “No. NO. You’re doing it all WRONG!”
