They Might Be Giants has remade a great anti-war song by Phil Ochs and made a chilling video to go along with it. This verse from the lyrics particularly struck me:

So young, so strong, so ready for the war
So willin’ to go an’ die upon a foreign shore
All march together, everybody looks the same
So there is no one you can blame
Don’t be ashamed, light the flame
One more parade

Thanks to Per Bylund and Wally Conger for this YouTube featuring Phil Ochs. I heard him perform in a small coffee house in 1968, and he was definitely the balladeer of the anti-Vietnam war movement. Here’s a clip 1969 with his most famous antiwar song, I Ain’t Marchin’ Anymore.
