While I do believe that "the good ol' days" is a myth sourced from the emotion nostalgia, listening to this easy, simple, and mesmerizing mix of vintage songs from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, one could almost believe in a safer, simpler, more peaceful era.

So grab a cup of tea, sit back, and let your mind travel back into time; to an age where letters took days, sometimes weeks to reach their destination, where the visual form of entertainment was the real world in front of you, where the front porch was one of the best options for spending one's days..



Love this mix! That first song is pure heaven.

My coworker and I got crammed into a little office together today- but since it's just us two..... we decided some tunes were in order. I love older music. Shes older. Perfect.

Thanks!

The songs that stuck out the most when listening were by Django Reinhardt. I didn't know much about him before today, but getting deeper into his work he is truly a genius.
All I can say is "perfection".
Belgian born French of Romani ancestry.
I will be listening to him for the next few days, I'm sure of it.

For the UK, the 40's were not particularly peaceful. The dominant theme was "things will be better tomorrow".
Incidentally, Vera Lynn has just celebrated her 100th birthday.

Originally written in 1931, the song Minnie the Moocher has easily carried thru the decades.


Cab Calloway was known as the Hi-De-Ho man, and “Minnie the Moocher” was his signature song. Written with impresario Irving Mills in 1931, the record sold more than a million copies and launched Calloway's group on a decade-long supercharger, breaking audience records for an all-black band.

Version from the late 50's with full Jazz ensemble...
I liked his performance in Blues Brothers the best. Imagine, dude was still doing this song after all these years.

Thanks for posting those wonderful songs. Ah, Vera Lynn- I love that song We'll Meet Again. And I also love the Pink Floyd song Vera.


Truly, when one studies history, we can see that there have been none to few eras in the history of man that were free of strife.
But there is so much beauty, art, love, and merriment as well so if we are lucky our lives find that balance.

intrptr--I look forward to listening to some Cab Calloway! In the middle of the Reinhardt now and am in a great spot auditorily/mentally.

Have a great one both of you!

Here is a happier activity. Who hasn't done this from time to time?

Why certainly, as far as activities go, leaning on a lamp post is among the happier ones!

Especially when it's for the purpose mentioned in the lyrics.

This came on the local radio station a short while ago probably right after you made your post! This thread really got us in good spirits. Good tunes, good mood, hooray! I'll have to revisit this later so I can jam out at home!

You're welcome.

In my opinion Al Bowlly was the greatest ever " Crooner "

He was unfortunately killed in a German air raid over London in 1941, age 43.
