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.
