Songs about war

Article about: Do you know any songs about war? I know a few, Mother of Mercy by Iron Maiden, and Sodom have alot of songs related to the Vietnam War. Mother of Mercy is maybe the better choice for most of

    Zuken, I'm really not a fan of thrash metal, but the song you just linked: 'Arttu Wiskari - Tuntematon Potilas' -that was nice. I don't speak Finnish, but I wish I did! I love the language. The song sounded nice, and I read someone's translations of the lyrics. I have a few Finnish songs in my collection, and my favourite bands are Finnish.

    As for the other songs suggested and posted, I'll be sure to take my time to go through them at some point. My taste in music is very varied, and even if something isn't exactly to my liking, I can still appreciate a song's meaning.

    A suggestion of mine that comes to mind right now: 'Our Solemn Hour' by Within Temptation. It's a song about WW2, though it makes general reference to man's tendency to perpetuate war, and forget lessons of the past. Most likely not to most people's tastes here (Symphonic rock/metal, if you feel the need to classify), but I really like it and think it's worth a listen- she has a beautiful voice. I think it conveys well it's message, and the sense of despair. Here it is: Our Solemn Hour (W.Tempation) - Lyrics - YouTube

    The one that always reminds me of the VietNam era is Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones Probably because it was the theme music for the TV series "Tour of Duty"
    Other ones that get to me are:

    19.......Paul Hardcastle
    Stop The Cavalry........Jonah Lewis
    Two Little Boys.........Rolf Harris
    Lilli Marlene...........

    There are others, but these will do for now.
