D-Day veteran, 90, beats Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber to No. 1 with haunting ballad

For the 75th anniversary of D-Day, this 90-year-old Normandy veteran released a beautiful folk song – and now, he’s made it to No. 1 in Amazon’s music chart.

Jim Radford, the youngest known D-Day veteran, has released a powerful ballad ‘The Shores of Normandy’ for the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Jim’s newly recorded version of the song, released only a week ago, has edged ahead of Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s hit song ‘I Don’t Care’ in the Amazon music chart.

The ballad is inspired by his experience of working on a ship on 6 June 1944, with lyrics about men who ‘stormed the gates of hell’ and ‘died upon that blood-soaked sand’.

“We want people to remember all those good men. They deserve to be honoured and remembered. The thing that I remember most is seeing [the bodies of] those lads floating in the water – the ones who had to run up the beaches into the machine gun fire and never made it. I can still see their faces now.”
