THEME ARTICLE -"HOW MUSIC HELPS US FEAR WAR, GET THROUGH WAR AND REMEMBER WHY WAR IS POINTLESS"
Throughout the First World War there were patriotic songs and songs like "Pack Up Your Troubles" which reminded the soldiers of home. Humorous songs lifted spirits including "Oh It’s A Lovely War", comically singing of mud and soldier’s food rations. This inspired the film “Oh What A Lovely War”
Other songs included Vera Lynn’s "We’ll Meet Again" and the theme to TV’s “Dad’s Army”, "Run Rabbit Run" by Flanagan and Allen.
So war is good for nothing, but songs about war are essential to our minds, hearts and souls in this climate of destructive leaders.
