Paul Hardcastle war hit 19 gets remixed for Afghanistan


25 years after Paul Hardcastle released his anti-war hit 19, he has reworked the dance track for Afghanistan.

The 'godfather of sampling' says he was inspired by his son, whose friend died fighting in Afghanistan, and wanted to raise awareness of the young age of those involved in war.

The original track used footage from a documentary about Vietnam war veterans.
