I was recently thinking about songs about Vietnam. I think this was following on from the death of Mohammad Ali.
Anyway the first one that immediately sprung to mind was Vietnam by the great Jimmy Cliff.
Whilst not directly attacking the war it is definitely an anti-war song and highlights the impact war has on families.
Due to abject laziness on my part I have not scoured the shelves for other songs namechecking Vietnam.
Rather I have opted for another Jimmy Cliff number.
However, when you see what it is I am not anticipating too many objections.
Jimmy Cliff - Vietnam
Jimmy Cliff - Many Rivers to Cross
