American Music During WW II

During WW II most households in the U.S. had a radio. This provided them with news about the war and with the popular music of that era. Among the popular singers were Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, the Andrew Sisters and Bing Crosby. Top wartime radio songs included;

“Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” 

“I’ll Be Seeing You”

Swing music became popular. Lots of big bands became popular at this time and songs like

“My Blue Heaven”

“It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing”

Two songs which are favorites of mine from this time are:

“(There’ll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover”

“Deep in the Heart of Texas”
