Subject: RE: Songs about the Great War (WWI)
Les Sullivan's Roses of No Man's Land
Martin Graebe's song about the man whose sweetheart went to France as a nurse, and was killed; I think that was mentioned earlier in the thread.
Dancing at Whitsun , absolutely.
Jim Mageean's medley of songs the soldiers actually sang. Keep your spirits up, lads! The content is Nothing like our present-day soul-searching bordering on dare I say maudlin offerings..
I don't mean All of them. but quite a few. or maybe it's how they are presented?
or do I mean, Respect please, but let us not Wallow? yes I think that is what I mean.
