Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?

"I'm In The Mood" by Vera Lynn with the Casini Club Orchestra was recorded in October, 1935. This was Vera Lynn's first commercial recording. Lynn was loved by the British because of her selfless efforts entertaining the troops during WWII. She was so popular that a comedian once cracked that the war was was started by her agent.
Today, she is best known for her stirring performance of "We'll Meet Again" during the final scene of Dr. Strangelove; after Colonel Kong rodeos the Bomb from a B-52 over the old 'U of SSR', a series of spectacular nuclear explosions appear on the screen against a soundtrack featuring Lynn's beautiful voice.
