Life During Wartime" is a song by the American new wave band Talking Heads, released as the first single from their 1979 album Fear of Music. It peaked at on the US Billboard Pop Singles Chart. The song is also performed in the 1984 film Stop Making Sense, which depicts a Talking Heads concert. The performance featured in the film prominently features aerobic exercising and jogging by David Byrne and background singers.

The right to life is a moral principle based on the belief that a human being has the right to live and, in particular, should not be killed by another human being. Various individuals who identify with pro-life views may disagree on which areas this principle applies, including such issues previously listed.

The phrase "Life During Wartime" does not appear in the lyrics. About the album title: David Byrne came across a book called Music And The Brain, which discussed a phobia some people have regarding music. The book explained that music is so distressing to some people that they have to be sent to the countryside where they can't hear it. Byrne thought the contradiction between the intent of music and this reaction was interesting.

This is an acoustic version of "Life During Wartime" by Pinhead Gunpowder. It was recorded by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, who plays guitar and sings in PHGP. The song's from their 1996 album "Goodbye Ellston Avenue", and it was written by Aaron Cometbus. This recording is from 2003 I believe. I made this video in 2007, right before Pinhead Gunpowder announced they would be going on tour for the first time in years. I wanted to make an anti-war/anti-Bush video that would go along to the song.

Life During Wartime plays like you’ve been dropped into the middle of a thriller where your next move might be your last; it’s thrilling and harrowing all at once. Byrne doesn’t waste any time setting up the stakes, as evidenced by the opening lines: Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons/ Packed up and ready to go. Within just the first verse, we find the narrator listening to gunfire and contemplating where to bury the bodies. The lyrics do an excellent job of expressing how disorienting such a life might be, as the protagonist’s identity and even his physical looks are malleable
