Military-Themed Music Videos

While watching the video to Mustasch's "Libertà", I remembered the very similar one to Ace of Base's quite different "Romantis". Apparently the Swedish music industry has a short line to their air force. :D

Ah forgot music videos. Technically not a music video but just a sound track above.

 

Not much to offer from my end, particularly in comparison to some of the videos already posted, so...

This one is a bit different. Its Pink Floyds 'The Gunners Dream', all about the lasts words of an air gunner on a Bomber as he expires over Germany (it was Pink Floyds most depressing album after all, though thats not necessarily a criticism) which annoyingly they never seem to have to have done an offical video for, perhaps not surprisingly. This poster set it to an exceptionally good piece of animation I seem to recall was called 'Paths of Hate' which fits it nearly perfectly.

I remember this infuriatingly catchy number from Jona Lewie in 1981.

 

I love that piece, it's on my main playlist. Never saw the video.

 

Speaking of British songs with not necessarily an adulating attitude towards military service, I see Status Quo made a new video for "You're in the Army Now" with a more uplifting text than the 80's original in 2010.

The Quo is one of those bands in the UK everyone sneered at. But like Phil Collins, they still went out and bought their Albums. :D I liked that one as well.

 

Re the Jona Lewie song, Paul McCartney did a similar video for his 1983 song 'Pipes of Peace', based on the 1914 Christmas Truce. The video is interesting. There was a bit of a scandal about it because the mess it made took ages to grow back.

This was from the Pink Floyds 'The Wall', or the movie of it. I think the political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe did the animation in this, and its an excellent piece of work. One of the most underated piece's by Floyd too, I think.

If we're doing cinematic music videos causing a scandal, nobody beats Mylene Farmer. Posting two since they are part of the same story arc, even if only the second has a war theme. And spanking. Lots of spanking.
