Songs from the 1930s

Swing and Jazz dominated the music scene in the 1930s. Musicals were also quite popular.

Billie Holiday was singing with everyone and Glenn Miller was at the top of his game. And although many of the songs from the 1930s are not well known today, that doesn’t mean they don’t soothe your soul after a stressful day at work.

Some of the most classic songs from the 1930s were: In The Mood, God Bless America, Over The Rainbow, Silent Night, Minnie the Moocher, Strange Fruit and Stormy Weather.

The was truly the era of big band, because the 1920s jazz sound had permeated everything, including orchestras. No longer was jazz limited to the traditional 3-piece combo — now it was being played by very large ensembles. The thirties witnessed the rise of big band.

If you head to the record store I’m sure you can find an awesome collection of 30s music back in the dusty section where they sell the 18-record set by Reader’s Digest for $2.
