Reiver 2 Greatest Anti-War Song Ever? (372* d) RE: Greatest Anti-War Song Ever? 11 Sep 09

There are so many outstanding anti-war songs, it's almost impossible to pick ONE. I can't help but put in my 2 cents worth, though. [And there are many listed above that I've not heard, and in picking the best I would want to consider both lyrics and music.] Of those I know I would make it a tie between "The Band Played Waltzing Marilda" and what I learned as "The Green Fields of France." It goes without saying, therefore, that I'd vote Eric Bogle as the outstanding WRITER of anti-war songs. {One that would be close is Buffy St. Marie's "Universal Soldier."] I just wish all of those mentioned on this thread could be sung and heard more often!! And that more who hear them would act accordingly.
