"While music may have changed immensely in style over the centuries, the themes that musicians write songs about have largely stayed the same – and battle, soldiers, and war are themes that have appeared in a number of iconic songs in the 20th and 21st centuries…"

Goodnight Saigon. And of course anything by Sabaton.

Warren Zevon:
Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner (based on a real mercenary)
Jungle Work (not about anyone famous)
Werewolves of London (about mercenaries between jobs)

The greatest of them all!

I'm sure we all yearn for a return to the normalcy of yearly doses of Eurovision.

There are no words in any language I speak that can describe exactly how much I hate "The Battle of New Orleans"; while working as a volunteer at the annual reenactment at the National Battlefield I wasted a great amount of time explaining to visitors that that song doesn't contain a single grain of truth about the real battle. The only think that annoyed me more was having to enlighten history teachers as to why the battle was not fought when the war was over.
