I was playing out some stuff today and realised i had a fair amount that were Vietnam related.

I'm sure there are many more. Here’s a few i picked out of mine.... What's in yours?

Good shout. Skip Jackson & JP Robinson spring to mind here..can’t imagine what some of those guys (and gals) went through back then... or since.

Me too Chris.  Not only the war relevance but nearly twenty year's ago my youngest brother committed suicide and I played this when I found out,  hoping that he wanted someone to find him but he really didn't.  He actually left a note saying that he had gone looking for our mum who had passed away two years earlier.  So as you can see its also a very personal tune.

A few Vietnam sounds from my Motownesque Collection :

    Martha Reeves"I Should Be Proud" , A side in 1970 to Gordy " Love Guess Who { "Forget Me Not " also !}

    Temptations " War "  Lp only due to Berry,s reluctance to get involved in politics ,so gave it to a Ric Tic Relic ,the great Charlie Hatcher!!

   Freda Payne " Bring the Boys Home "  { Invictus ,Motown part 2}   ,a Nam tune but the sentiments resonates throughout all conflicts!

                                                 Enjoy John Hart ,Malaga.

Anything that mentions "Jody" is a Vietnam reference, ain't it ?

For songs written in the time of the Vietnam war, pretty much yes, although the term refers to anyone who steals a guy’s girl while they’re away on military service.

Brief but interesting background to the origins and development of the expression here...

Dick Griffey and the Whispers rush-released and changed the “ending lyrics” from ‘Oh by the way tell our next door neighbors their son got blown away' –TO-  ‘their son will be home anyday’.

Why? – because as they were in the recording studio a Vietnam peace settlement was announced.

I know the Skip Jackson version was posted higher up, but for sheer soulfulness Michael Lizzmore wins hands down for me, just awesome:-
