Enumeration of all song titles the Peerless Quartet cut between 1914 and 1918 is a shocking lesson in mass perception against war, the longer one gets involved in it. From out and out anti to blindly pro: I Didn't Raise My Boy To Be A Soldier ('15), Don't Take My Darling Boy Away ('15), I Think We've Got Another Washington (Wilson Is His Name) ('16), America Here's My Boy ('17), For Your Country And My Country ('17), Over There ('17), Goodbye Broadway, Hello France ('17), Somewhere In France Is Daddy ('17), We're Going Over ('17), Say A Prayer For The Boys Out There ('18), Liberty Bell (It's Time To Ring Again) ('18), Au Revoir But Not Goodbye, Soldier Boy ('18), Just Like Washington Crossed The Delaware, General Pershing Will Cross The Rhine ('18), I May Stay Away A Little Longer ('18), I'm Gonna Pin My Medal On The Girl I Left Behind ('18), The Yanks Are At It Again ('18).
