Glenn Miller Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree With Anyone Else But Me
The history of Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree is long and varied.
It's origins begin in an eighteenth Century English folk song
entitled Long Long Ago. Long Long Ago was then transformed into
a song entitled Anywhere the Bluebird Goes. The song was written
by Sam H. Stept with the lyrics by Lew Brown and Charles Tobias.
At the outbreak of World War II the lyricists came back together
to create the song we now know. Glenn Miller made the original
recording but several artists would record the song. Though
not the original vocalists, The Andrews Sisters would team with
Glenn Miller and make the song their own.
Frank Sinatra Night and Day
Written by Cole Porter for a 1932 musical called the Gay Divorce,
the song was first performed by Fred Astaire, and would be performed
by him again in the 1934 film version of the show. One of Porters
claims is that it was the Islamic call to worship that inspired
the song, but there are other stories as well. Night and Day
would become the title of Cole Porter's first motion picture
Kay Kyser There'll Be Blue Birds Over The White Cliffs of Dover
This song was written by Walter kent and Nat Burton in 1941.

Merry Macs Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition
This song was written in direct response to the Japanese attack

the stories is as follows: An officer in charge of an ammunition
line on the USS New Orleans during the attack on Pearl Harbor
said that, "I heard a voice behind me saying, 'Praise the
Lord and pass the ammunition.' I turned and saw Chaplain Forgy
walking toward me, along the line of men. He was patting them
on the back and making that remark to cheer and keep them going.
I know it helped me a lot, too." (Wikipedia)
