Best War Songs

I’m a huge Maiden fan. Currently, at the gym, making hoistings. Rocking to Paschendale. Got me thinking, what’s the best song on war. I mean, honestly, there’s a bunch, but Maiden has to have the most/best. Alexander The Great is one of their best jams. I f’ing love it.

This clip always gets an old guy, like me, going.

 

WW1 troops are putting on a show when they get their actual orders to head out.

"Over There" always sounded inspiring to me.

 

 

Best version.........

 

You get Cagney dancing down the White House steps,

 

Then a soldier, not knowing he is talking to the song's author, getting him to sing along.

  Does the opening to Black Sheep Squadron count?

Um, I was....I was born in '84. I specialize in rocks before my time -- but that's a bridge too far and a different genre.

I'll call your Black Sheep Squadron and raise you one M*A*S*H.

The MASH theme is actually a pretty dark song. The real title is 'Suicide is Painless'.

I don't see MASH in the same light as BSS.  MASH is anti-war which is not a bad thing but the bottom line is the content is fairly subversive which does not fit the spirit of songs such as "Over there."
