Song of the day: Stan Ridgway- Camouflage


I probably already told you that I’m busy investigating the link between music and the Vietnam War. Last week, I was just listening to the radio, as happens often when I’m working (or not working, but that doesn’t matter). This song came by and normally I don’t listen closely to the lyrics. This song came in like a rocket. I stopped working and just sat there, staring at my radio, listening to the lyrics. Clearly, it was about Vietnam, since he sang Jungle Wars of ’65. A great eighties song for the research! Enjoy
