List of top USA songs of 1944

abn deuce

Recommended Posts

Found a site all about music , what the hits were and who sang them , the site is searchable by type and year . had a peek at what the 25 most popular songs for 1944 were in the USA. Perhaps there is a simular site for music in Great Britian ? .Do the re-inactors play period music at W&P when sitting by their Vehicles for example ? As G.I.'s would have been listening to the radio while in boot camp or in barracks in Great Britian .This is the site I visited , I m not connected to it in any way just giving credit

the first one sounds like an Irish Lullaby



It is


Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral (That's An Irish Lullaby) Composer: James R. Shannon


My favourite isn't on this list probably because it came out in 1946


I'm a Cranky Old Yank in a Cranky Old Tank on the Streets of Yokohama with My Honolulu Mama

Doin' Those Beat-o, Beat-o, Flat-on-my-seat-o Hirohito Blues


by Hoagie Carmichael


I used to like "Over there" before those ***** at Go compare messed it up:-(
