Translated from RTL TV in the Netherlands:
Veterans’ journal publishes soldiers’ Top 50
That says Checkpoint, the monthly magazine for veterans. The magazine asked veterans to send a top three of most popular songs and made a Veterans’ Top 50 out of the contributions. …
The song by The Animals from 1965 came with a large majority on number one. It is especially popular among young veterans.
Many play it every day and sing it loudly during a mission abroad. “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” was the song for American soldiers during the Vietnam war.
Elderly veterans chose especially the songs of the British singer Vera Lynn.
Vera Lynn is an Afghan war opponent.
“‘Ik wil weer naar huis'” [“I want to go home”] by the Brabant orchestra De Toendra’s, landed in third place.
