The last weekend in May, Memorial Day, is not just a day to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer barbecues and pool parties, but it’s a special day to commemorate the heroic deeds of all our U.S. Military soldiers who died in service.
We’ve made a list of our Top 10 Songs That Honor Our Fallen Soldiers for this Memorial Day to help us remember all of those who have given their lives to keep America the land of the free and the home of the brave.
10. “The Soldier Song”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Babyface[/lastfm]
Babyface’s song tells a story about an 18-year-old man who goes to war and loses his life too young:
In another day or so/He’s be one year older/God bless his soul/Barely 18 years old/When he became a soldier/God bless/his soul/It’s not like he didn’t know/The way all he had to cope/But he never made it home
