Thread Name: Songs about the Great War (WWI)
Subject: RE: Songs about the Great War
I agree that Eric Bogle songs, at least the two mentioned, do sound scornful. I won't sing Willie McBride [No Man's Land] for that reason, and I don't particularly like it as a song. I do think "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda" is scads better as a song..he still gets a dig in but I let that one slide. mg

p.s. keep the home fires burning. mg
