"The Shores of Normandy"

 

A 90-year-old is currently beating Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Ed Sheeran on Amazon UK's singles chart—but not just any 90-year-old, a D-Day veteran who's out with a tribute to that fateful day in 1944.

Jim Radford was just 15 during World War II's D-Day landings—the youngest known D-Day veteran, per CNN—and he wrote "Shores of Normandy" 25 years later, when he returned to the site during the anniversary and saw children playing on the beach where so many soldiers' bodies were once scattered.

The Normandy Memorial Trust re-released the song this year to mark the 75th anniversary,ABC News reports. Per CNN, it's been atop the chart for much of the week.
