    Bringing up this old thread at the end of 2012 and adding another song of my youth - Aussie band Midnight Oil's " Forgotten years"
    Midnight Oil - Forgotten Years - YouTube

    Ostensibly about WW1 it is also about the debt we owe that we can only repay by NEVER forgetting what hardships they endured to enable us to live the lives we do!! yourselves a favour and have a listen....

    Happy and safe New Year everyone!

    The band played waltzing Matilda , a terrific song that has quite a bit of meaning to those of us old enough to remember seeing the old first war blokes, as a kid they were easy to spot, they were the old fellas missing arms and legs.

    Lilly Marlene, a beautiful song.

    Redgums, I was only nineteen, another terrific song, like many Aussie war songs it doesn't speak of glory etc...but of pain, suffering and futility. I like them.

    Muse a Soldiers Poem
    Soldier's Poem - Live at Wembley Stadium - YouTube

    and Radiohead Harry patch (in memory of).

    Radiohead - Harry Patch (In Memory Of) - YouTube

    Radiohead one is quite haunting with the music and the way Thom Yorke sings you really have to listen to the words. Probably not everyones cup of tea
