Suggestions(serious ones please) needed. Help for Heroes.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Got a mate, who is cnut of the first water, and a bit of a singist.

    He's doing a "Charity acoustic gig" in July which is in support of Help4H.

    He wants a suggestion for a song which will mean something to the guys and their families

    Stuff that means something to a smelly old b'stard like me may not have any resonance with those still serving.

    So, other than " Mrs Brown you've got a lovely daughter", any suggestions?

  11. I know it's a bit corny but I like it, Brothers In Arms

    Here's the lyrics

    Brothers in Arms

    These mist covered mountains
    Are a home now for me
    But my home is the lowlands
    And always will be
    Some day you'll return to
    Your valleys and your farms
    And you'll no longer burn
    To be brothers in arms

    Through these fields of destruction
    Baptism of fire
    I've watched all your suffering
    As the battles raged higher
    And though they did hurt me so bad
    In the fear and alarm
    You did not desert me
    My brothers in arms

    There's so many different worlds
    So many different suns
    And we have just one world
    But we live in different ones

    Now the sun's gone to hell
    And the moon's riding high
    Let me bid you farewell
    Every man has to die
    But it's written in the starlight
    And every line on your palm
    We're fools to make war
    On our brothers in arms
     
  12. Eminem, Lose yourself.
