Beautiful! I never liked Tiesto's version, it was too repetitive like bad techno, ha. I like this better

Nice... Very soothing

Paige you have to realize that movies are also works of art and date back 1000's of years....of course people will easily relate a song to one. Good music nevertheless .

Makes me very sad that everyone is mentioning Platoon and other movies. It is too bad most only know classical masterpieces such as this from (ugh) movies. To me it's like recognizing the Mona Lisa from a cartoon version.

On Sept 11th, 2001 I spent the day, traveling around
for my job...of course I was listening to the radio
attentively. . . t r y i n g to decipher what was going
on around us....and this song stands out cleary
as the one played over and over..
I've never seen PLATOON so I associate the tune that way
