With the CS: Vietnam release on the horizon I was thinking about a list of songs I could setup in a playlist to support it. I'll list here the songs I've picked so far in my "CS: Vietnam Playlist".
Man, in listening to these songs it really does transport you back to this time period. One could make a good case that of all the eras of warfare that could be covered with Wargaming, the Vietnam War era had the best music selection of them all.
Here is my playlist of background music for CS: Vietnam so far:
- Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth
- The Doors - This is the End
- Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit
- The Rolling Stones - Give Me Shelter
- Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze
- The Rolling Stones - ( I Can't Get No ) Satisfaction
- The Doors - Break On Through ( To the Other Side )
- Credence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son
I'm 48, so the Vietnam War was a little before my time. After an internet search on the subject I found in countless interviews of Vietnam War veterans that music was something ( along with a lot of prayer ) that helped them pull through. So here are the top 10 most popular songs from the GI's on the ground that were actually there back then. Some are a repeat from my list:
1. The Animals - We Gotta Get Out of this Place
2. Country Joe & The Fish - I Feel Like I'm Fixin to Die Rag
3. Peter, Paul and Mary - Leaving on a Jet Plane
4. Bobby Bare - Detroit City
5. Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze
6. Credence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son
7. Otis Reading - ( Sitt'n On ) The Dock of the Bay
8. The Box Tops - The Letter
9. Aretha Franklin - Chain of Fools
10. Porter Wagoner - Green Green Grass of Home
So you guys have any songs in mind you would want to add to this list?
Also, by creating this wargame covering the Vietman War as well as this one will, in a way, helps to honor all the men who served in Vietnam. Great job guys.
