I grew up with 78 records of WWII songs and loved them - many happy memories

I have a wonderful CD - The Songs That Got Us Through WWII. My father who served in France for 2 years loved listening to the songs. My mother, left here alone with a baby (me), couldn’t listen. She said they were a painful reminder of an awful time.

"Goodbye Mama" sounds like the inspiration for Tom Lehrer's later satire song "So Long Mom, I'm off to Drop THE BOMB" -- referring to Cold War issues.

Gary, I was thinking the very same thing! Send a salami to your boy in the Army.

Dan: these videos all seem to be from films from the war. Products of the Off War Info (for whatever?) for home front consumption or for troops? These are all upbeat and positive…. And very very propagandistic.. And mostly not memorable tunes….

I learned the songs at the movies which I attended faithfully each Saturday.
Mitchell Miller

This song, we'll meet again, gives me goose bumps.
Simon Smith

FYI Blue birds don’t live in England,so that song was intentionally written for American consumption.

Before and after he went to the Bulge my father sang this "Apple Tree" song -- along with "Skinny Marinky Dink" to my sister and me. I can hear his voice now.
Rob Raab
01:37:41
Were there war songs during the Korean War and Vietnam eras?
Marianne Metz

"I'll Walk Alone" -- all Dinah Shore & backing singers -- no instrumentalists.
Richard R. Palmer
01:48:10
Either: Perfect
Alice Weinstein

Perhaps the difference between British and American songs goes to the fact that for Britain it was an existential fight and much less so for the U.S. They were badly bombed while we stayed safe and unharmed.
