Abby Sale Songs about World War I (148* d) RE: Songs about World War I 29 Jun 06

But Matt R, why overlook the period ones. The Great War was a great shock to those involved. The songs sung often had deep meaning, not just a theme to get your song printed/recorded.

I think one of the best 'most certainly relates the battle of the Somme
and is on the same Roberts/Barrand CD cited above AND is a Song of the Week this week since the battle of the Somme was July 1, 1916: "Hanging From the The Old Barbed Wire."

You could sing it with a guitar or an electric glockenspiel if you wanted.
