This one has been more consistently mentioned in this thread than just about any other song, going back to at least 2008.

I am glad my tour in Vietnam had ended and I was back in the States before I heard that song.

First let me state that I'm not trying to offend anyone, but I heard this song sometime back. It's a Swedish, Anti-Vietnam War Communist Song from the 70s by Knutna Nävar (Closed Fists). (Please don't take this the wrong way, I have nothing aganist the men that fought in Veitnam.)

Can't get the video to work so here is a link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jHq2r6BQA0

Not unusual that a communist song would be released from the comfort of European "neutrality" during a period when others were fighting and dying. This is not unusual for post-WWII Europe, however. I saw plenty of it on the streets of Frankfurt in the early 1970s. Gentle European youth expressing their gratitude for the American liberation of their parents from fascism.

New music from the son of a SP6 Norman F Evans, an ECM/DF technician with the 156th Aviation Company (Radio Research) who was killed in an RU-6A mid-air crash with a UH-1H over Phong Dinh Province in 1970.



The song writer also lost his uncle in Vietnam and his brother in Iraq.

Hush was written by Joe South and performed by Billy Joe Royal in late 1967. Deep Purple recording of Hush was released about a year later.
