Songs worth remembering

There are many songs about war and peace. We’ve been singing about those two conflicting states since the dawn of time. 

November 11 is Remembrance Day.  In honour of that day, here are eleven of my favourites.

 

  1. Billy Bragg – Between The Wars
  2. Bobby Darin – Simple Song of Freedom
  3. Jackson Browne – The Drums Of War
  4. Paper Lace – Billy don’t be a Hero
  5. Barry McGuire – Eve of Destruction
  6. Pink Floyd – The Gunner’s Dream
  7. Bob Dylan – Blowing In The Wind
  8. George Harrison – Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)
  9. Queen – Hammer To Fall
  10. The Jam – Little Boy Soldiers
  11. The Original Caste – One Tin Soldier
