Songs about the war: Comin' In on a Wing and a Prayer; White Cliffs of Dover, My Buddy, The Last Time I Saw Paris, A Nightengale Sang in Berkeley Square. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, He Wears a Pair of Silver Wings, There's a Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere. Lots of swing music, sad music, happy music, patriotic music. Big band music: Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Glen Miller, Kay Kyser Harry James,Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and many more. Great ballad singers: Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Dianh Shore, Dick Haymes, Perry Como, Helen Forrest, Bing Crosby,Jo Stafford, and more. Wonderful groups: Andrews Sisters, King Sisters,Ink Spots, Pied Pipers, Mondernaires, Mills Brothers. I have done a bit of research bothin libraries and on the web. You can find WWII songs at www.activemusician.com There were great musicians, singers, songwriters during this period of time - and I believe much of their music will last a long, long time, much has already lasted many years. Those of us who loved it in the '40s have passed it down to our children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildeen. Hope this helps - email me for more info. Jean
