"The Ballad of the Unknown
song is called "The Ballad of the Unknown Soldier." Barbara Dane
recorded it on Paredon's "What Now People?" Vol. 1. some time in the
early seventies. She first got the song from Peggy Seeger who sent it to her in
1969. The author, Rod Shearman, is English. Shearman wrote it after seeing a
brief item in the Manchester Guardian about an American GI, dressed in sandals
and black pajamas, who was found dead behind "enemy" lines.

THE VIETNAM WAR SONG PAGE "Most
all of the songs I have listed in this web site do not mention Vietnam by name.
But the 9 years of US active combat in Vietnam changed this nation and I believe
that none of the following ten songs would have been written without the extreme
emotion that the war brought to this country. I feel that all of the songs are
very interesting and a reflection of the time. In deciding which songs to list,
the song had to qualify in two ways. I asked (1) Was it a Top 40 Billboard
Song? and (2) Would it have existed if Vietnam had not
curated by Thurston Moore and Chris Habib. The
site exists for musicians, poets and artists to express LOVE + LIBERTY in the
face of greed, sexism, racism, hate-crime and war.
Blues for Peace was
established in Israel to honor the roots of blues music and promote peace and
the understanding that ALL peoples have had their share of the blues.
