The best Amiga album of the last 10 years IMO.   A is for Amiga

One of my all time fav's. Even remember when heard 1st: At a former colleague/buddy's house who had a *lot* of copied games for his A500. The intro song's just so catchy. Hard to get out of head, like the Paperboy theme.

Bit off topic, but I vividly remember the bloodiness(albeit being very pixelated) and when shooting an opponent, instead of finishing him off, waiting for his buddies to come to rescue upon his cries in pain, subsequently shooting them too. ;D  This strategy was also used in the movie 'Predators' and 'Full metal jacket' .



Intrigued I did some research and found that apparently the song "War's Never Been So Much Fun" vocals are from Damned frontman - Captain Sensible.

Cannon Fodder - FMV Intro (War! Never been so much fun!) with lyrics



The guy's also known for Captain Sensible - "Wot" (What you want!?)

Don't think they sound remotely alike though, so I find that rather odd. Would have expected a rasta guy or so.
[EDIT: I think the latter song sounds pretty similar in style and elements like Wham - Wham Rap! / Young Guns (Go For It!)]
