I do not have to tell you guys that in every movie about the Vietnam war music is played that's deeply connected to that time, the society and lifestyle of the late 60's/early 70's. Some -with the fitting age- will remember it anyway.
Driving in my car today I heard a song which I immediately associated with the Vietnam War. I was listening to good old CCR anfd this takes me immediately to one of my faves regarding this topic
Creedance Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son". Somebody fixed a matching clip to this. Lookie here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3__s39V3mYE

Didn't get around to this last night, but there's a story behind Smiley.

Johnny Young, a pop identity of the sixties, wrote it about Normie Rowe, one of the biggest Australian pop stars of the sixties. Rowe served in Vietnam as a cavalryman. It changed him and damaged his promising career.

From an interview transcript in 2006


NORMIE ROWE, IN VOICEOVER: In 1964, November 1964, the Federal Government introduced a ballot to bolster the armed forces via national service, and by 1967 it was my turn. And I turned 20 and I had to register.

I felt that if it was good enough for a bank jockey, a motor mechanic or something like that to go into the army and perhaps go to Vietnam, then it was good enough for a pop singer.

NEWSREADER: Just in case you didn't recognise him, the soldier is singer, Normie Rowe.

NORMIE ROWE: I actually quite enjoyed my time at Puckapunyal, recruit training and then on to corps training, and I guess it was because I always said that if I had a chance to get a medal for my kids to wear on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day, I would do that, because I remember feeling left out because my dad didn't have anything like that. I think even now it was quite, for a young man, an honourable decision. I put my hand up for a fighting unit and I got the call to go to Vietnam.

Living in Vietnam became a strange thing. It was a surreal thing to me, because that became normal. The difference between being in Australia and being here faded because we were so busy doing what we had to do in Vietnam.

When I came home... my brother-in-law was driving the car and I had to say to him, "Mate, please slow down." He was doing 10mph less than the speed limit and I asked him to slow down, and I think that's when I realised I'd really changed. When I went on stage for the very first time, that's when I realised that Australia had changed. And it was like... it was like being on a train, getting off at your station, and realising that that wasn't the station you thought you were gonna get off at.

It's true Vietnam killed my career. I can look at it with bitterness and wish things were different, or I can take out of it the fact that I've got the best friends any man ever had, and they are all Vietnam veterans. The Vietnam veteran community, the ex-service community at large... is a brother and sisterhood. It's a fraternity. And we all know something that people who haven't been to a war don't know, and most of us would prefer not to know it. But now that we DO know it, we would love to know that no-one else gets to know it. http://www.abc.net.au/talkingheads/txt/s1565435.htm

I made a point to copy all your posts to Notepad in the same order that you had originally posted them.

I think we all have went through that unfortunate experience of losing long posts because the login timed out.

I just make a habit of typing longer posts out ahead of time in Notepad.

Great songs by the way :)

Ahh!

I didn't think of that. I couldn't work out what happened. Usually I can recover lost work with the back button.

But, as I spent several years telling my obstinate son who would not keep saving as he worked, if you don't save every few minutes you will lose your work.

I confess I have no excuse for not doing my lost post in Word to begin with.

All yours are also good ones, as are all the others posted.

I've been a little liberal with a couple of my songs as being part of the era, as distinct from being specifically related to and aired during the war.

There's a ton of sixties stuff that goes with the war that isn't war themed but was part of the troops' experience, e.g. Tracks of my tears, Heard it off the grapevine, a lot of Motown stuff, Beach Boys, Phil Spector Wall of Sound stuff, British stuff like Mersey Sound and all sorts of other influences like Sukiyaki http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtXQ31F1A-k&feature=related and the Singing Nun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suehSgf_ILs although some of these are during Western involvement in Vietnam but before it involved large numbers of Western troops.

Looking back, there was a lot more musical variety in that era than there is now. Or maybe I'm just getting old. Probably the latter. :neutral:

Instrumentals are usually forgotten, but there were some good ones in the sixties which I associate with the Vietnam era I lived through, although some of them were aired much earlier but still remained popular on vinyl off the airwaves.

Thank you :)

I agree with you that there are a lot of songs from that era that are not necessarily war themed but were nevertheless part of the servicemens' experiences.

That is why I have also posted several that would fit in that category. I see nothing wrong with it. I think that it gives a person a feel for the music of those times.

Ballad of the Green Berets - by SSgt Barry Sadler (1966)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH4-tOqLH94
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tglKP1C7aA



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballad_of_the_Green_Berets
"Ballad of the Green Berets" is a patriotic song in the ballad style about the Green Berets, an elite special force in the U.S. Army. It is one of the very few songs of the 1960s to cast the military in a positive light and yet it became a major hit, reaching number one on the Billboard Charts for five weeks in 1966.

The song was written by Robin Moore and Staff Sgt. Barry Sadler, while the latter was recuperating from a leg wound suffered as a medic in the Vietnam War. Moore also wrote a non-fiction book, The Green Berets, about the force. ... (continues)



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_Sadler
Barry Sadler (November 1, 1940 – September 8, 1989) was an American author and musician. Sadler served as a Green Beret medic and Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Most of his works have military themes, and he billed himself under his military rank of Staff Sergeant as SSgt Barry Sadler. ... (continues)

The Green Berets - Movie 1968 - Opening Credits & Title Song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBKTxe51NMc

The Green Berets - Movie 1968 - Closing Scene & Song Finale
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QksTWzzwfEI



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Green_Berets_%28film%29
The Green Berets is a 1968 film featuring John Wayne, George Takei, David Janssen, Jim Hutton, and Aldo Ray, nominally based on the eponymous 1965 book by Robin Moore, but the screenplay has little relation to the book.

Thematically, The Green Berets is strongly anti-communist and pro-Saigon. It was produced in 1968, at the height of American involvement in the Vietnam War, the same year as the Tet offensive against the largest cities in southern Vietnam. John Wayne was prompted by the anti-war atmosphere and social discontent in the U.S. to make this film in countering that. He requested and obtained full military co-operation and matériel from President Lyndon Baines Johnson. The U.S. Army's strict control of the script's depictions and equipment were reasons why Columbia Pictures, (who had bought the book's pre-publication film rights), and producer David L. Wolper, (who also tried to buy the same rights), changed their minds about making The Green Berets themselves.

John Wayne had always been a steadfast supporter of American involvement in the war in Vietnam. He had entertained the soldiers in Vietnam, and wanted The Green Berets to be a tribute to them. He co-directed the film, and turned down the "Major Reisman" role in The Dirty Dozen World War II anti-Nazi commando action movie to do so. The film's first scene illustrates that contention when Green Beret tour guides at Fort Benning, Georgia, show civilian visitors to the U.S. Infantry School the Soviet- and Chinese-made weapons issued to the soldiers and guerillas of the communist NVA and VC. ...

Hundert Mann und ein Befehl - by Heidi Brühl (1966)

Also:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcrivAsy8es



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballad_of_the_Green_Berets
A German version (Hundert Mann und ein Befehl), sung by Freddy Quinn and later again by Heidi Brühl had considerable success in Germany. The German version is a song against the war. It rejects any sacrifice, not only for the son, but not even for the father. Freddy Quinn sings the song from the point of view of the reluctant but forced soldier, Heidi Brühl from the point of view of the crying girlfriend of the soldier.
