Thanks Hayden. That comp has the song I was looking for specifically.


Link


Anyways, this song roughly translates to "Singing on the Corpses" and it's one of her more explicitly descriptive songs. If you can find a good translation of it that is.

For me this is the archetypal Vietnam song and my favourite song of all time:

Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky

Ah yes, how could I forget Good Morning Vietnam. I totally grew up on that soundtrack.

I would have killed for a class like that, wonderful topic and right in my wheel house. I absolutely love the era's music but glad i didn't have to live through the division of the war. The music though is transcendent.
