OK so I'm putting together a playlist of songs from Vietnam films, we've all seen them, Full Metal Jacket and the likes...

Anyway, I just wanted some suggestions as my mind is currntly drawing a blank. so far I have:

CCR - Fortunate Son
Rolling Stones - Paint It Black
Jimi Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower
Mammas and the Pappas - California Dreamin'
The Clash - I Fought The Law

I'm after Vietnam specifically, not just war related songs as there is a thread on that already, Searchbar people!

I'd class that as WWII, even though it is on the soundtrack for 'Battfield Vietnam' the game and Apocalypse Now

When the Music's Over by the doors

Unknown Soldier by the doors

5 to 1 by the doors

not to touch the earth by the doors.

The End by the doors. (Think apocalypse now!)

I don't know if it's ever been used before but I've always thought House of the Rising Sun would work well for a Vietnam War Movie.
