There were dozens, but none better nor more important or influential than my all-time favorite and the most underrated in today's media - Bing Crosby.

LILI MARLENE was heard in all fronts and by all occidental soldiers in the world , from Germans to British, from British to Americans and so on.

Big Band and Swing were popular then. Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller allhad famous orchestras during that time. The Andrews sisters were known for their hit the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
