:iwo:......Just sitting here listening to my Mom's favorite WWII music, Glen Miller and his Orchestra. Those Marines who served in the Pacific, knew most of the "tunes" by heart. When my Dad was on leave from the R.A.F., he and Mom would go into London and dance to the sounds of the "Big Bands". Luckily for me, they introduced me to all that great music. The Dorsey Brothers, Glen Miller, Harry James, and many more.
VERY positive, and fond memories......:flag:

"Great" is a matter of personal preference. The music this thread speaks about is NOT what my generation would consider GREAT. Not my dad's generation either.

It is a matter of preference, but this is a thread in the WW-II forum.

Great link Bob, passed this on to several Marines I know from the greatest Generation. I grew up to big band music and am a true Glenn Miller fan. I also like A/C , Pink Floyd and open minded to all types of music. Some people just need to listen to this Big Band music.

Believe it or not, my musical taste is rather diverse too. Anything from Bach to Pink Floyd. My favorite though is swing and big band from the WW-II era. Many of these songs have a great deal of personal meaning to the guys I put this up for. Sentimental Journey was the song that was interrupted on the radio when it was announced the Japanese surrendered. Dream was the song that was played at lights-out, etc... I've been to a couple of WW-II era canteen dances too. A really swell time dancing and sipping on soft drinks and eating those small sandwiches--no booze. I always found it easy to dress the part as dress greens have changed little since WW-II.

Never will forget the Summer of 67 at Khe Sahn. I'm from the Hills of Ky. and everybody called me Hillbilly. GySgt. Tucker called me over to his Bunker and said, got somnething from Home today I think you'll like. Played a 45rpm of George Jones singing " Walk Through This World With Me". That's been one of my favorites ever since. Sure made me feel good Thinking about my Young wife and Son waiting for me back Home. Still got that same GREAT GIRL and we had 2 more sons and a daughter. God sure has been GOOD to ME.
