Also unclear why NYD is on this list.  It's a song about the Polish solidarity movement; it is not a war-themed song.

I actually tried to base my vote on tunes i get the War vibe from. So, i voted for Seconds, Bullet and Please
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world
