Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Soldier (Harvey Andrews)
Badly written, tasteless, style-less, going for the sympathy vote, and twee in the extreme.
And a bundle of lies, to boot!

This song is one of the finest examples of that very 'British' of all pastimes: The attempt at the re-writing of history.

Harvey Andrews is just one in a long line of British propagandists, an ambulance chaser of the musical genre.

It's a crap song.
