These songs are all from my parents' generation. The were popular before I was born. However, as my parents' played the records and sang the songs, I learned them and came to love them:
When I heard Barbra Streisand sing this is the film Funny Girl, I was amazed that I already knoew the song from listening to a recording by Billy Holiday.
This WWII song was a favorite of my dad. He once told me that he and his buddies fighting in Italy often sang it.
I really had a hard time learning this one.!
Creating this post was fun! I'll have to do another like this soon.
