  Does anyone here happen to know the lyrics to "The Story Of A Soldier" (the CD version, not the one in the movie)?  I do know about 80% of the words, but some of it is lost due to the singers' accents.  Thanks in advance.

  Actually, on the whole, I found that the actual song inconsistent with the lyrics posted there.  For example, towards the end of the first verse, the words listed as "All hope seems gone" - when it clearly sounds to me like "The ruse is gone" (in any event, it sounds nothing like the listed words).

  In the final verse, it's even worse.  Again, it might just be the singers' accents (I'm assuming they're off the Cantori Moderni?  Undecided) , but the flag being "Scorched and in ribbons" clearly comes across to me as "Scorched INTO ribbons".  And the last line: "Ask if we dare, our comrades out there who sleep"; the word "who" is clearly pronounced as "To".

  I'm sorry if this annoying; I just love to nitpick.  Grin

Remember (amazingly) that Tommie Conner also did the lyrics for "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus".  I believe "Story" was his last work.

Well, Kermit, I've had that site bookmarked for quite a while, but thanks anyway.  And I do have all of the Man With No Name soundtracks on CD, so no need to worry about that.  Grin

Since it's Christmas, time to re-post this. 

So could be a good Jeopardy question: what's the link between GBU and Christmas?

actually, the correct title is "Ballad of A Soldier"
as with other tracks, the Italian translation on the soundtrack was literal
not idiomatic.*
In America, a song with a story is called a "ballad"
IN Europe a ballad (or ballade) is an instrumental piece.

I was pleased that in his dvd commentary, Frayling used the correct term "Ballad"
- [he must have read my album review Cool}

bruce marshall

*worst example of this in with DYS - "Mesa verde" is literally translated as "Green Table"!!! Shocked

Uh? Which part of Europe? Surely not in Italy. Go to youtube and do a search for"ballata" and see what comes up.

In real Europe, not third world.
In France.

Does Calvados rate as third world?
