Sing, Sing, Sing with a Swing (1940s Music)

Today is Fun Monday for Going Through the Era's and I am going to drown you with swing music! Well, maybe not really, but I do love music from the 1940s. Judy Garland, the Andrews Sisters, Benny Goodman and his Orchestra, and all those lovelies! *happy sigh* You get the idea.

"Sing, Sing, Sing" by Benny Goodman and his Orchestra. A particular favorite.

"Drummer Boy" sung by Judy Garland in the movie "Strike Up the Band."

"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" sung by the Andrews Sisters in "Buck Privates"

"The Turntable Song" sung by Deanna Durbin in "Something in the Wind"

"Gotta Be This or That" sung by Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland on The Danny Kaye Show.

"Swinging on a Star" sung by Bing Crosby in the movie "Going My Way." The song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song. Bing Crosby would also win an oscar for best actor and his co-star Barry Fitzgerald won best supporting actor.

"The Nerve of Some People" sung by Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in the movie "Lights of Old Santa Fe."

"Cowboy Ham and Eggs" sung by Roy Rogers and The Sons of the Pioneers in the movie "Home in Oklahoma"

Well, I'd better close this before it gets too long, but I hope it has whet your appetite for more.

  1. Hanne-col!
    Oh, you picked some good ones. I love 40s music too. "The Nerve of Some People" is one of my favorite parts in a Roy/Dale movie... they're so cute together! "Cowboy Ham and Eggs" is good too. *smile* Of course, you can never go wrong with Frank! *wink* And, I know adding Judy to the mix just makes it better for you!

  2. Oh! That's who I forgot! Roy and Dale are wonderful, and those are two of my very favorite songs from their movies.
    And Frankie!=)
    I'm going back and adding them to my post for today;)
