"Just Plain Old Music"

Oldiesmann

Here's a cool patriotic tune I discovered recently. It was quite popular in 1942 and almost completely forgotten after that save for a couple recordings in the 1960s.

"This Is Worth Fighting For" by Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WpChyE2-Kg

This was also recorded by Vaughn Monroe, Kate Smith and The Ink Spots among others. Those in the UK might be familiar with a version recorded by Leslie Hutchison (aka "Hutch").

Oldiesmann

Here's a great song I just recently found.

"Leavin's Not The Only Way To Go" by Roger Miller: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLiHGlMRzrw

This was written by Roger Miller for the 1985 musica Big River. He recorded it himself in 1986, and it's also been recorded by Glenn Campbell (1987), Merle Haggard (2005) and most recently by lesser-known country duos The Stellas and Lennon & Maisey for a Roger Miller tribute album that was released in late August.

Oldiesmann - I enjoyed listening to, “This Is Worth Fighting For”, by Jimmy Dorsey.  One of many patriotic songs that were popular during World War II.   Also there were lots of cute novelty songs, love songs, and songs full of hope for the future.  Two of my favorites, that are especially beautiful and hopeful, are “There’ll Be Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover”, and “We’ll Meet Again”, don’ t know where, don’t know when, but I’m sure we’ll meet again some sunny day."

Heard this one at a country restaurant earlier today.

"Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" by George Jones and His Smoky Mountain Boys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PytG-uA_p6g

This was originally done by Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys back in 1947 and has since been recorded by dozens of artists. This version was recorded in the early 70s but was unreleased until last year.

Oldiesmann

Found this yesterday. Hard to believe none of these people are around anymore.

MarsGal

Just love it! What a gem, Oldiesman.

Here's a classic from 1957. "There'll Always Be A Christmas" by The Ames Brothers

Michael ( Oldiesmann ) is this where you escape to when you want some peace from the grief you are getting from us  over our forum changes...if so, a good choice ;D

...yes " there will always be a Christmas.." that is guaranteed..Thank you..

"There'll always be a Christmas" - lovely song and it was good to hear the Ames Brothers again.  I think at least two of them have died. 

Thanks for posting that song.

Here's a song that some of us remember.  A good one to commemorate December 7, 1941 . . . "A day that will live in infamy"

Mary Ann

Thanks, Marilyne, we had a lot of good patriotic songs at that time.

Here's a lively one I stumbled across earlier...

"Christmas Comes But Once A Year (Christmas In Carrick)" by The Barra MacNeils


This was written by Seamus McGrath and originally recorded by Irish folk group The Clancy Brothers in 1969. This version was released in 1999. The Barra MacNeils are a Canadian celtic music group from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

SCFSue

Thanks, Oldiesman.   Very "Irish" and reminiscent of trips to Ireland--Cheerful and harmonic!

Daryl Dragon, the "Captain" of "The Captain and Tennille," has died.
"What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."

Rick, I had read that about Daryl Dragon, then I read another headline that she was going to be 78.  I think I read a while ago that they had divorced.  I didn't read the article about her, so I don't know if he was mentioned or not, but I thought it rather odd that her age would be highlighted at the time of his death. 

Mary Ann

RAMMEL

I read that they were divorced a few years ago but remained friends. The post I saw said she was with him in his final days. I always liked their music.
"What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."

Rick, I often read only the headline which is how I knew about both of them.  I'm glad they remained friends because I hate to read about bitter divorces.
