Popular World War II Music

    For my Drama performance, I need to come up with a soundtrack relevant to T"he Second World War II" (Simpsons quote there hehe), and was wondering what the most popular songs were at the time. I am preferably looking for instrumental, orchestral songs, but would also be grateful for very popular songs that had lyrics.

    Here is the list of some of the songs we are considering so far:
    Andrews Sisters - Boogie Woogie, Bugle Boy
    Benny Goodman - Sing, Sing, Sing
    Glen Miller - In The Mood
    Glen Miller - Moonlight Serenade
    Glen Miller - Pensylvania 6-500
    Louis Alter - Manhattan Serenade
    David Rose - The Stripper (which although was not around during the time period, it's the same style that we're looking for)

    I will give rep to any relevant recommendations, but please be very specific, as there are a lot of songs of that era and I only want to include the more popular ones, thanks!

    try contacting a re-enactment group, theres plenty on the net, im sure they will help you out. do not contact any german re-enactors as i have found them not so helpful

    try this website as a starter and then have a listen on itunes or other music site…tml
