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.

  1. Lucy is a very thoughtful pup. I can see it in her eyes. I grew up listening to some Glenn Miller. My grandparents would’ve grown up listening to the sound of big band music if they liked the genre. I sorta think they would’ve been more into country or bluegrass music growing up in southern West Virginia. That would be interesting to know, though. I will have to ask my mother. Perhaps she knows. Thanks for hitting the 4M dance floor, my friend!

    1. Lucy is smarter than the average bear for sure.
      Dad grew up in red dirt Oklahoma so Hank Williams Sr. and Bob Wills western swing was his favorite music. Mom was always a big band girl.

  3. Lucy is so photogenic. And I’ve enjoyed the Glenn Miller selections so much, including yours. So happy you included I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo because it was so amazing seeing the Nicholas Brothers in action. I wish I could say this music is timeless – I hope it is. I know a 40 year old (not me, alas) who absolutely loves Glenn Miller.
