Meer info No one who lived through the stirring days of the Second World War will ever forget such musical hits as We'll Meet Again, Lilli Marlene, The White Cliffs of Dover, and Run, Rabbit, Run. These songs and the musicians who created them captured the unspoken feelings of so many people. Band leaders such as Joe Loss, Geraldo, and Glenn Miller and vocalists such as Vera Lynn and Anne Shelton, all became legends in their own lifetime - an unforgettable part of the wartime scene. This book will evoke many bitter-sweet memories of those days when there seemed to be a song on everyone's lips. Camp concerts, impromptu sing-songs and crowded pubs all helped to foster a new spirit of togetherness. Dance halls were more crowded than ever before as young couples found an escape for a few brief hours from the grim realities of their existence. Yet, despite all the perils and the privations of wartime, a spirit of hope and romance prevailed, symbolised by Goodnight Sweetheart, a prewar song which was so popular during the war that it was used to conclude many dances of that era. But this is far more than a book of nostalgia. The entertaining and informative text together with over fifty illustrations, shows how popular songs reflected all the great social changes that occurred during the war. The words and music helped many ordinary people to express their inner feelings, bringing them closer to each other and sustaining their morale during difficult times.
