The War Was In Color

A while back I mentioned hearing Carbon Leaf perform a new song, "The War Was In Color," that deeply moved me. It's a World War II veteran's reminiscence with a twist. There's a fan-produced video (WIndows Media and Quicktime) out there which is very well done, and is the best way to hear the song right now. IF you have the time, the first time you play it, don't watch it -- just listen and focus on the lyrics.

This is a song with meaning, from a young band with depth and talent. And in a lot of ways, it's my grandfather's story.

My grandfather served in WW2 and this nearly brought tears to my eyes. He's gone now, but I am sure he would have loved to watch it.
