Armed Forces Survivor - Round 11

Armed Forces Survivor Round 11

(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding is out. This is a great song and one of his best singles, but in my opinion, it is definitely not as good as the two remaining tracks.

Now, there are two tracks left. On one side, we have Accidents Will Happen, a great new wave track about infidelity and accidents in general. It makes a great start to the album, and sets the tone perfectly. Such a strong melody.

On the other hand, we have Oliver's Army, Elvis's highest charting single in the U.K., a classic pop song whose music is inspired by ABBA and whose lyrics are inspired by the army. One of the great war protest songs, hiding a dark message within a catchy pop song.
