OUR MUSIC PAGE

Recommended Posts

It's just getting started, but we now have a WWII Tunes Page. I just uploaded one song tonight, "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition." I hope to have many more tunes within the next few weeks. The page will open in a separate window, allowing you to continue browsing the site while listening to your favorite tunes.

Nice memories as air corp. cadet in Florida

For you young-uns the rest of that line was "how much I love you"

I too like the Andrews sisters. What great harmonies. Ahhh! Well, when I go to France and meet mes cousins, then we will have to meet for some 40's music avec rum et coca-cola. :DB)

 

Glad you are enjoying the new feature. I've already heard back from several of the vets and they're in seventh heaven.

 

I now find myself going through the house and store humming and singing music from the 40's.

 

Thanks for the memory...

Happy New Year,

Marion

I've just had an evening of nostalgia. What takes me back 60 odd years is the voice of Captain Glen Miller introducing the AAF band. My parents used to listen to the AFN. My dad was a Royal Marine bandmaster during WW2 and led a military dance band playing that kind of music.

Oh good. Glad I could bring back some good memories for you. Glenn Miller gets me going too.

 

Ah your dad was a bandmaster. How interesting. Do you have any copies of tunes he did? Any recordings?

I'm afraid I have'nt any recordings and and have been unable to discover any. I know he made recordings for the BBC, of programmes like "Workers Playtime" and have a photo of him fronting the dance band at Ford's Dagenham plant in 1944. I have contacted the BBC archives and the National Sound Archives but assume from their answers that nothing was kept.

That's too bad. Don't give up though, maybe someone or several someones have copies, even if the BBC doesn't. Who knows, maybe someone will read this post and say, "By George, don't we have those old tunes?" Stranger things have happened, Colin.

I remember the Andrews sisters from when I was a kid. You couldn't go anywhere that they weren't singing on the radio. Drove me batty, though, trying to figure out which one was which. To this day, I couldn't tell you.

 

Another song from WWII - Deep In The Heart of Texas! Though born in Texas, I was living in California. Everyone was singing it, especially when I walked in the door. Lord! did I ever get tired of that! It was a catchy tune, tho. - Marilyn

Added new tunes from WWII today thanks to my friend Misha from Yugoslavia. He sent me a great CD with all kinds of World War II music and I just started compiling and uploading today. I added about 10 tunes from Glenn Miller and Harry James and will be adding more this week.

So check it out and I hope you enjoy the tunes as much as yours truly. Let's swing.

Today I added a great medley mix of the Andrew Sisters that Misha sent me. I didn't even realize it was on he CD he mailed to me until today. Was driving down state to get groceries for the store and the medley started up. 13 minutes of great swing. B)<_<

I remember the start of a song that was in every juke-box.

It must have been UK song

It started "There will always be an England" that is all I can remember.

It was not a very good song but at that time it seemed OK

 

How asbout The three little fishes, they swam right over the dam

It started "There will always be an England" that is all I can remember ..........

There'll always be an England,

While there's a country lane.

Wherever there's a cottage small

Beside a field of grain

There'll always be an England

While there's a busy street.

Wherever there's a turning wheel

A million marching feet.

 

Red, white and blue

What does it mean to you?

Surely you're proud

Shout it loud

Britons awake!

The Empire too

 

We can depend on you.

Freedom remains

These are the chains

Nothing can break.

 

There'll always be an England

And England shall be free

If England means as much to you

As England means to me.

I can't believe it. I just started the music page a couple of months ago and thought it would be pretty cool, but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would take off like this. As of tonight the page has received 6,955 hits. Incredible folks.

 

I have received email from people all over telling me just how much they love it and how they can get copies of the music. Fantastic.

 

I am glad that everyone is enjoying it so immensely. I sure am too.

Did I ever tell you how utterly cool you were? Well if I didn't, I am now. Misha rules! B)

 

Thanks my friend. Yes, the music page has really taken off and I have you to thank for part of it's success. Your name shall remain in lights.

 

My friend from Alaska, Nancy, just sent me a disk tonight too and I haven't even had a chance to listen to it yet. More stuff to come your way...
