Platoon (And Songs from the Era) Original Soundtrack

1986 - Platoon is a 1986 American war film written and directed by Oliver Stone and starring Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, and Charlie Sheen. The Platoon soundtrack contains some of the greatest Rock and Soul hits of the Sixties.  Because the soundtrack is supposed to evoke the time period of the movie's setting, most of the tracks are "songs from the era." They include Smokey Robinson's "Tracks of My Tears," an ode to lost love which was also featured in the film's trailer, the conservative anti-hippie "Okie From Muskogee" by country singer Merle Haggard, the almost hallucigenic but riveting "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane, and Aretha Franklin's classic "Respect." Other artists featured are the late Otis Redding with his classic "The Dock of the Bay" and The Rascals' catchy "Groovin' ."

We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee
We don't take no trips on LSD
We don't burn no draft cards down on Main Street
We like livin' right, and bein' free

I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all

We don't make a party out of lovin'
We like holdin' hands and pitchin' woo
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do
