I misunderstood your first post, I see now what you mean. Perhaps in the early 60s, young people liked the idea of PAST wars so were in tune (so to speak) with those songs. Then in the late 60s and early 70s, the experience of the Vietnam War changed their feelings, hence all the protest songs against war, and hence the appearance of the hippies with their "Make Love Not War" slogans and rebellion against government, parents, working, and just about everything.

"... marketing is everything, John! ;o)" I'll accept that nostrum with a wink, Dominique 馃悵 Petersen. Especially when it coincides with politics & history. War Marches, like Battle of New Orleans, Sink the Bismarck, and Ballad of the Green Berets (all early 60's tunes), all reinforced the bellicose Cold War narrative. Then, music got coopted by the damnHippies in the 70's. We moved towards Woodie Guthrie-esque folktunes and wistful ballads like Woodstock and Abraham, Martin, and John. Even a little retro-nostalgia, like American Pie. In the face+ of it all, Marketeering .... just keeps sliming along.
