    There are a lot of great wartime songs, marching songs and songs to boost morale (to name a couple).

    Apart from most German marching songs my favorite songs would be those of Marlene Dietrich.

    My favorite two songs are Lili Marleen, WW2 Lili Marleen (1939 Version) - YouTube

    and the song from the 1939 film Destry Rides Again, the boys in the backroom. The boys in the back room- Marlene Dietrich - YouTube

    Hope you enjoy this thread

    For me it's gotta be Vera Lynn at the end of the movie 'Dr.Strangelove'.



    Classic.

    Vera Lynn, great... but make mine "The White Cliffs of Dover"! That, and of course Lale Andersen's "Lili Marleen".

    George Formby's "Mr.Wu's an Air Raid Warden Now".

    Great!
