This merodie reminds me a movie which tells about the world after the nuclear war.
A nuc-submarine goes north to usa under a mission( I do not remember firmly) to retain rest world safe. A kind of tears or something comes up when my recalling the people's choice for thier each final days in that movie.
@kobikiya You're thinking of the movie "On The Beach". starring Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Fred Astaire and Anthony Perkins. A very somber and geripping story of the last survivors of a nuclear war in Australia waiting for the radiation clouds that will wipe out all life on Earth.

@patricia51fem Oh yes... Thanks a lot pointing out my mixed-up memory of this lovely melody.
At that era, some stories were written after this "On the Beach".
I mixed up them with this movie.
Some of other stories was like this, automatic-revenging nuc missle system aliving in dead city Washington still capable of killing south half earth completely. It should be terminated by human-hands.
For that,some volunteer depart from melborn to washington. 1959 was it good to be young then
@kobikiya There WERE a lot of stories exploring a Post Nuclear exchange in those days. The other one you describe sounds interesting. If you ever find the title/author I would love to read it.
@patricia51fem As I 've got old enough to forget those past. things Just thIis merody reminds me something still mixed up :-)
I suppose the author was Komatsu Sakyo a Japanese SF story writer.
In depth of mind, as its hopelessness of original story, it gives deep impact.
I think I have said before, sorry repeating again, but each selection for their final days in this movie, the merry "Walzing Matilda" reminds me a thirsty to ever lasting peace on the earth.
@kobikiya "On the Beach" was a great movie and a great warning of what could happen. Also it was very brave in it's tactful way of criticising the whole "MAD" (Mutually Assured Destruction) concept.
