Five of the Best – War & Peace

Today marks the release of Tony Blair’s memoirs. Yesterday, the US hand-over in Iraq got going. There’s a lot on the news about war at the moment and so I’ve taken some inspiration. Here’s Five of the Best songs ever made to do with war and peace…

Eminem – Square Dance: A weird country/hip-hop beat sits behind lyrics such as “to join that army and what you do for that navy/you just a baby/getting recruited at 18/you on that plane now eatin’ that food, yeah them baked beans/I’m 28 they gonna take you ‘fore they take me”. Stunning.
