Music about the (First) Lebanon War (1982).

1. Shte etzba’ot mi-tzidon (Two Steps Away From Sidon), an introspective song sung by an Israeli soldier, interpreted by the Yemenite-Israeli singer-actor-film maker, Boaz Ofri, from the soundtrack of a 1986 Israeli film.

2. A very different perspective on the Lebanon war, also from the point of view of artists who served in the Israeli army, from the soundtrack of Waltz with Bashir (vals ‘im bashir, 2008), a film by Ari Folman.

3. The source of the soundtrack, I Bombed Korea, as performed by the northern California rock band, Cake (from their 1994 debut album, Motorcade of Generosity).
