  1. Being quite peed last night and surfin in a sort of Ad Hoc fashion I accidently stumbled upon this,,,,To me it epitomised the music of the Vietnam War era,,,having lived through it and paying attention to what was happening both over there and all around me this little piece suddenly brought all the memories flooding back.......
    Anyone else have similar musical flashbacks regarding past and present wars?............

  6. Vietnam era footage and music montage.

    There's a bit of moaning rubbish at the start, but persevere (or skip the first 47 seconds).
  7. Forgot to say,'Somebody to Love' By Grace Slick/Jefferson Airplane,also like 'Tracks of my Tears',original version by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles,who also did a better version of 'I heard it through the Grapevine',far better than Marvin Gaye's version of both songs.
  8. Were you THERE, M-A-A-N-N-N? :?

  9. See, this is the creeping effect of American rock music on warfare!
