Songs of WW I



When WW I rolled around and the U.S. got involved it changed the face of music. People where all doing their part for the war effort while soldiers were heading off to Europe. Music at this time was all about honor, glory and good-byes. Many songs had a patriotic theme to them mixed with an overseas flair. 


“Over There”
 
“Till We Meet Again”

“It’s a Long Way to Tipperary
 
Hit recordings on the home front in America

“I’m Always Chasing Rainbows”
 
“For Me and My Gal”
