So yeah. Was watching Forest Gump the other day and the part in Vietnam got me to thinking:

Damn. they had a lot of good tunes in that war!

So, I think I'll start a list of good "Nam songs, and see what The Pit thinks should go with them.

BTW, I'm tryin to keep them relatively between '60-'75, but they all don't have to be in time frame.

All along the Watch tower - Hendrix
Run through the Jungle - CCR
The Letter - The Boxtops
Fortunate Son - CCR
Have You ever seen the Rain - CCR
Rooster - Alice in Chains
War - Edwin star

thats all I got for now....
Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit
Bobby Fuller Four - I fought the law
Martha Reeves and The Vandellas - Nowhere To Run
i dont quite understand what you mean however

ride across the river
the mans too strong
one world
brothers in arms

all by Dire Straits, and they are all apparently about the Viatnam war, allthough im not too sure, they might be to do with some other wars involving guerrilla warfare

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Come on all of you big strong men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
he's got himself in a terrible jam
way down yonder in Viet Nam so
put down your books and pick up a gun we're
gonna have a whole lotta fun

And it's one, two, three, what are we fighting for
don't ask me I don't give a damn, next stop is Viet Nam
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates
ain't no time to wonder why, whoopee we're all gonna die

Come on generals, let's move fast
your big chance has come at last
now you can go out and get those reds
cos the only good commie is the one that's dead and
you know that peace can only be won when we've
blown 'em all to kingdom come

Come on wall street don't be slow
why man this war is a go-go
there's plenty good money to be made by
supplying the army with the tools of its trade
let's hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
they drop it on the Viet Cong

Come on mothers throughout the land
pack your boys off to Viet Nam
come on fathers don't hesitate
send your sons off before it's too late
and you can be the first ones on your block
to have your boy come home in a box
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
