Hello and welcome back.... This 1985 song by U.K musician "Paul Harcastle" made it to No1 in the music charts in 13 country's around the world.

That's pretty good for a song based on the Vietnam War.

This song was inspired by Paul after a bike accident left him bedridden for 4 months, during that time he watched a documentary called 'Vietnam Requiem', It was about Post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by veterans of war.

Add some sounds & samples from a E-mu Emulator Synth (Samples from the Documentary), add the now famous catchy 'n-n-n-n-nineteen' vocal effect  and you have the song "19"

Mike Oldfield later sued Paul Hardcastle over the similarities between this and his song "Tubular Bells.
