Author Ken Bielen compares Powderfinger to film noir because the narrator has died before the song begins, and notes that the song “has remained in high regard over the decades.”  Bielen regards the theme as “the tragic and wasteful loss of youth to conflicts between countries and their leaders.”

More great music at Rancho Radio (on Apple Music).
