Lest we forget

For Armistice Day, some sad, beautiful songs about wars. Videos below the jump.

The Pogues playing “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda” by Eric Bogle (live)

Adriano Correia de Oliveira singing Zeca Afonso’s “Menina dos Olhos Tristes”

Robert Wyatt singing Shipbuliding

Roy Zimmerman toning down his usual humour and bringing the pathos – “Thanks for the Support”.
