The Music of World War II
The Political and Romantic Songs of World War Two highlight some of the most popular music of the war years (1939-1945).
You’ll hear and see performances of sentimental songs of love and separation as well as those tied to particular events and situations presented by this war.
Songs of heroism like Comin’ in on a Wing and a Prayer, Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition and humorous songs like G.I. Jive and Der Fuerher’s Face.
Songs that spoke on behalf of soldiers and their spouses
and families whose relationships were interrupted by this global conflict.
Love songs like Lili Marlene, As Time Goes By, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree and I’ll Be Seeing You and songs of longing for the war to end like (There’ll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover and When the Lights Go On Again All Over the World.
