The service and academy bands and choruses are the best. They always perform the music as it was intended, without unnecessary flourishes. Count on them for the best rendition of our National Anthem as well.
 
Amen to that!

Not exactly a "military song", but today being the 4th, I thought our National Anthem would fit in well, especially as this performance showcases our military's choruses and bands.

"I hope and pray someday the world will learn
That fires we don't put out, will bigger burn
We must save freedom now, at any cost
Or someday, our own freedom will be lost."




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

I really like the theme to Band of Brothers ( https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7uTAIpU0sa0 ) and the original Army song the Caisson Song. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yJybwgtR970. I also like It’s a Long Way to Tipperary. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FsynSgeo_Uo

But it’s hard to beat the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QSiVjlknuSw

"Yalla Talla" by Cracker



Jesus Christ, it's hot out here,
But I'm the lucky mother, tip of the spear

Give me water and cannon fodder,
Get me outta this stinking CHU

I been thru Basra,
Fucked up Falluja,
Sadr City, Mosul

There weren't no chocolates,
No pretty flowers,
Just kill them all or we die

Ya la la yalla yalla
Ya la la yalla yalla
Ya la la yalla yalla
Ya la la yalla yalla

At Bombaconda, the Hajis missed me,
Send them on their way to paradise,
Whiskey tango foxtrot gunners,
Too many pogues in the way

No r and r in Kuwait city,
Abu Dhabi, Dubai,
I want my boots on,
My battle rattle,
When it's my time to die.

Ya la la,
Ya la la yalla yalla

Ya la la,
Ya la la yalla yalla

I had a girl her name was Gwendolyn Wanda,
She rocked my world she loved my anaconda,
I had a girl her name was Alda Salas,
We never stopped, she'd holler yalla yalla,
I had a girl, Nantucket, Massachusetts,
She had a lisp, but man her ass was perfect

I had a girl her name was Alda Salas,
I couldn't stop she'd holler yalla yalla
I had a girl, she volunteered for PETA,
She liked my gun, all fifty millimeters

I liked a girl she liked to live with danger,
She liked it best when it was with a stranger

I had a girl her name was Gwendolyn Wanda,
She rocked my world she loved my anaconda

I had a girl, Nantucket, Massachusetts
She had a lisp, but man her ass was perfect.

-Tom

American Anthem by Norah Jones



Let them say of me,
I was one who believed,
In sharing the blessings,
I received,
Let me know in my heart,
When my days are through,
America,
America,
I gave my best to you

-Tom

Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qjzjhl-QztE

We met as soulmates
On Parris Inland
We left as inmates
From an asylum
And we were sharp
As sharp as knives
And we were so gung
ho to lay down our lives
We came in spastic
Like tameless horses
We left in plastic
As numbered corpses
And we learned fast
To travel light
Our arms were heavy
but our bellies were tight
We had no homefront
We had no soft soap
They sent us playboy
They gave us bob hope
We dug in deep
And shot on sight
And prayed to Jesus Christ
with all of our might
We had no cameras
To shoot the landscape
We passed the hash pipe
And played our Doors tapes
And it was dark
So dark at night
And we held onto each other
Like brother to brother
We promised our mothers we'd write
And we would all go down together
We said we'd all go down together
Yes we would all go down together
Remember Charlie
Remember Baker
They left their childhood
On every acre
And who was wrong
And who was right
It didn't matter
in the thick of the fight
We, held the day
In the palm of our hands
They, ruled the night
And the night, seemed to last
as long as six weeks
On Parris Island
We held the coastline
They held the highland
And they were sharp
As sharp as knives
They heard the hum of the mortars
They counted the rotors
And waited for us to arrive
And we would all go down together
We said we'd all go down together
Yes we would all go down together

Just about any march penned by John Philip Sousa takes me back to my Navy days. I love his stuff.

I can't listen to this without the hair on the back of my neck going up. It is not strictly a military song, I guess, but it is from a military documentary, one which I regard as the best documentary I've ever watched.
