Welcome ladies and gentlemen to this musical lunacy that “Love Is In Da Blog” in 2019! Today we are entering a tough decade. WWII is roaring and won by some lost by others. What seems incredible to me is that love songs seem to have kept both soldiers and civilians going. Because after all isn’t it love that we fight for the most?
I am going all instrumental today. You can imagine that jazz and swing was pretty taboo in the country that I come from in that decade. However, those who didn’t buy into the illusion of Hitler’s philosophy still listened to it but it might have cost their lives.
I once saw a film about Glen Miller and I remember how tragic I found his disappearance so short before the end of the war. According to Wikipedia, his music had more chart hits than Elvis Presley and the Beatles and I think that is quite something.
“Moonlight Serenade” is one of the most romantic songs I can imagine and I think it would be our song if the best husband (Jeremy Clarkson voice) in the world would love that sort of music (it’s Pink Floyd instead…and what does that say of the state of our minds LOL 😉 )
No big history lesson today so just sit back, grab a Mai Tai and let the good times roll 😉
