Thread Name: soldiers Music from Viet Nam era
Subject: soldiers Music from Viet Nam era
I was thinking today about being in the military in the sixties, and the music that I heard all the time that may or may not be included in lists of "sixties" music. I heard this stuff on Armed Forces Radio and over the air from 50,000 watt stations in the U.S., particularly when working through night shifts. Maybe you did too. Songs of sadness, regret, release, confusion: 96 Tears
                            The Letter
                            You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin'
                            Workin' in a Coal Mine
                            Dock of the Bay
Maybe you could add to the list. This stuff precedes 1969,70, when musically things seemed to break loose
