Big Country album 'The Crossing' still sounds good with bags of energy.

I haven't listened to "The Crossing" in its entirety for ages. Porrohman and Harvest Home appear on a few playlists though.
I saw Big Country twice, in 1984 and 1986, both at Dundee Caird Hall. Great gigs.

OK , then.
Definitely not going to quote the songs or provide links , but....

1. Certain internet radio stations are run from Russia / Eastern Europe , and their grasp of English evidently isn't particularly good. As such , under the topic of 'folk music' they'll occasionally play songs which would have been popular amongst rugby players back in the '70s , listing the escapades of characters with names such as Charlotte & Nel. :wink:
( And somewhat off topic , there's one station called 'Radio Stalingrad'.....as you may guess from the name , all it plays are Russian songs , propaganda speeches & news reports from the WW2 siege of Stalingrad )

2. Been helping someone with a project they're doing involving Military music & marching songs. As such , it has included a fair portion of songs popular with those who had a penchant for wearing uniforms designed by Hugo Boss ( and as far as I know a number of said songs are still banned in their country of origin )

Vague enough ??

Right......

Isn't going to get you in trouble but there might be few raised eyebrows, including mine.

Presumably you mean the second part ??
As I said , t'was finding stuff for someone else's university project........along with the aforementioned I've also dug up & listened to stuff ranging from Roman times ( in English , of course....most of the Legions' marching songs/chants revolving around either making fun of their commanders or describing what they'll do/did to their enemies ) through the English Civil War , the American Rebellion & Civil War , WW1 & WW2.
As for the German songs , a number of them were also popular with UK & Commonwealth forces - particularly those who served in North Africa - in preference to the 'sentimental twaddle' ( as my Grandfather phrased it ) of the British songs at the time ( and hence why the old irreverent WW1 songs were still popular ).......not forgetting that a number of them were - and still are - part & parcel of the Légion Étrangère's repertoire & at least one has been appropriated by several Countries as the basis of their National Anthems.
