Thanks to Seax for the suggestion (In response to Patti Page). I hadn’t heard The Andrew Sisters before … This tune was the one I liked best from a short outing on YouTube – from 1941 !
I’m not quite sure what the genre is called, roughly I’d say “Swing”, but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
“Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” is a song which became a major hit for The Andrews Sisters and an iconic World War II tune that first appeared in the Abbott & Costello comedy film, Buck Privates. It reached number six on the U.S. pop singles chart in early 1941. The song is ranked No. 6 on Songs of the Century. Bette Midler’s 1972 recording of the song also reached the top ten on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
“Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song but lost out to “The Last Time I Saw Paris”.
The song is closely based on an earlier Raye-Prince hit, “Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar,” which is about a virtuoso boogie-woogie piano player.

They had oodles of great songs. Hard to choose my absolute favourite, this is definitely one of them. Civilisation is a fun song too. Kinda reminds me of the Kingston Trio song “Merry Minuet.”
I had a quick look see what I could find on the YouTube, ordered by views, the one with the yiddish name had the most views and this was near the top, and I liked best, out of what I could find. Thanks for suggesting 🙂
I’ll have to check that out.
If memory serves (wikipedia yesterday), it was one of their first hits.
I blogged it for you, just now. Please can you check your spam folder and rescue any pingbacks in there – sometimes WordPress does stupid shit.
(Usually I link to blogger’s about page, but I couldn’t find yours. Maybe you want it that way, all good either way, whatever floats your boat)
Sure. Hold on. Technical glitches are probably my fault, I’m kind of a Grug with the interwebs.
LOL … Not your fault Seax … but one of my favourite sayings to my friends is “I was wondering when it would be my fault” 🙂
Should be good!
