Top of the pops: music's big hits of post-WWII 1945

The second world war ended in 1945, but it took many years for countries to get back on their feet - at least they still had music to get them through the tough times

The year 1945 was difficult for everyone. But no matter what hardships they faced, music was always there to bring smiles to people's faces, and distract them from reality, even if just for a few minutes.

We've put together a list of the top tunes to hit the charts after VJ Day. Check it out.

On the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe - Johnny Mercer and the Pied Pipers

 

2 Til The End of Time - Perry Como

 

3 I'll Buy That Dream - Dick Haymes & Helen Forrest 

 

4 I'm Gonna Love That Gal - Perry Como

 

5 Along the Navajo Trail - Roy Rogers

 

6 It's Been a Long, Long Time - Harry James & Kitty Kallen

 

7 Gotta Be This or That - Benny Goodman

 

8 It Might As Well Be Spring - Dick Haymes

 

9 Harlem Nocturne - Johnny Otis 

 

10 I Can't Begin to Tell You - Bing Crosby

Well done, Shelle and Wendy! Lots of people don't know that 11/11 was the day that the ariictmse ending the fighting of WWI. Great summary of events, Shelle! In fact, the 11th of November was called Armistice Day until Eisenhower was president. Of course, The Great War had not turned out to be war to end all wars. After so many servicemen and women had fought in both WWII and the Korean conflict, the name Armistice Day was officially changed to Veterans Day.

I was wondering if you ever<a href="http://bynnchebrux.com"> ciorndesed</a> replacing the page layout of your site? It is well written; I really like what youve got to say. But maybe you could create a little more in the way of written content so people might connect with it better. You have got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you could space it out better?

May I simply say what a<a href="http://tnnqskv.com"> crmofot</a> to uncover a person that genuinely knows what they are talking about on the web. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you're not more popular because you surely possess the gift.

Karly, I love, love this post. The first photo is just stunning (what an aewsome wall and composition!) and the second one is so fun. I think it's great that you make a point to take time to put on make-up and do your hair before leaving the house. I've started doing that only recently and I'm actually starting to feel a whole lot better about myself. Can't wait to see what you come up with for next week. http://twndjgl.com [url=http://tptrslp.com]tptrslp[/url] [link=http://nmbyyzbafpl.com]nmbyyzbafpl[/link]
