Some songs are meant to last forever. They are so powerful that even years after being released they still trigger strong feelings, whether that’s love, nostalgia, sadness, or happiness.

When we think of such everlasting pieces of music, one of the songs that comes to our mind is More Than a Name on a Wall. Sang by the Statler Brothers, this tune brings millions to tears. It honors the soldiers who fought during the Vietnam War, which took more than 50,000 lives, through the story of a grieving mother who visits the Vietnam Wall and prays her son is more than just a name written on that wall.
