You made my day with Lilli Marlen! So relaxing man! :) If I'm not mistaking, that song was loved by both sides on the western front.

Another nice song is the Tipperary song. I first heard it in Das Boot, and that's still my favourite "version" with the entire crew singing :D

Now, I also like to hear the soviet anthem http://www.youtube.c...h?v=qLcc19mt4eA Just sounds glorious, to me at least, but then, my language is similar to russian.. also, the video is awesome, a bunch of great things shown, one cannot but admire it, reminds me of my old country, that is no more *sigh*

Also, this, the "luftwaffe march" from "The battle of Britain" http://www.youtube.c...h?v=cNVVoH9-QH0

This as well, has the means to rise one's spirits: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=PGrxHO-B2TY The british grenadiers march! I wish I could find a chorus version or at least a sung version in this quick beat.

For now, this, I'll add some others as I remember them
