Aww…some Monday – Lucy
Monday’s Music Moves Me
The theme at 4M this week is Glenn Miller songs. The Glenn Miller Orchestra was one of many members of the Big Band era that started in the late ’30’s and ran all the way through the early ’50’s when it was replaced by rock ‘n roll. Early on, my dad was a country music fan out of the dust bowl of Oklahoma. My mother, on the other hand was a huge fan of big bands and the ultra smooth sounds of the Glenn Miller Orchestra was her absolute favorite.
I have chosen a couple of songs that may or may not be Glenn Miller signature numbers, but the do represent the sound and style of this great collection of musicians. The first song is a little long because there is a dance routine that should not be missed. These are the sounds of “The Greatest Generation” and it will be a sad day when they are no longer heard. Enjoy.
