My former stepdaughter has just joined the army reserves, and is heading off for six months of training at the end of the month. I wanted to send her off with a CD of humorous songs about the Army. Nothing too deep, nothing that might make her dwell on the possibility of being killed (like Country Joe's "be the first one on your block to have your boy come home in a box"). Here's what I have so far:
- "Army", by Ben Folds
- "It Makes a Fellow Proud to be a Soldier", by Tom Lehrer
- "Oh, how I hate to get up in the morning", by Irving Berlin
- "The Army Song", by Brecht & Weill
- "Arthur McBride" (traditional song about the evils of recruiting officers)
I plan to close with "In the Navy".
Please include links to recordings or videos of the songs you suggest, or I probably won't be able to include them.
