30 Day Song Challenge - day 04

day 04 - a song that makes you sad

It can only be one song: Eric Bogle's 'Romeo And Juliet In Sarajevo'. This wiki link provides the background to this tragic true story.

Unfortunately I couldn't find a You Tube link for the song so, as it's fairly obscure song, I've uploaded it on the page so you can hear the song for yourself:

Bogle is a terrific songwriter - Green Fields of France always makes me cry.

Brilliant songwriter.

I also love his 'And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda' amongst others and unlike that other great radical songwriter - Leon Rosselson - he has a great voice, and you don't just have to fall back on cover versions of his songs.
