The song I’m listening to on loop, Le pays que Dieu a oublié (The Godforsaken country), by La Souris Déglinguée. A song about Vietnam, its wars and its warriors, very nostalchic.

I liked that Tai Luc seems to cry at the end of the second line of the song.

The country God forgot is my father’s country

Soldiers dying there in this fucking war

Just before being killed in some paddy field

Were writing to their mothers :

« Mummy, I’ll go to Heaven, since this country is Hell »
