Songs from the 1940s

1940s Songs (Bob Hope)

Songs from the 1940s are extremely romantic, sometimes funny and usually somehow connected back to home. Many Americans were away from home, at war, and loved listening to music that reminded them of home.

Bob Hope was also a huge star in the 1940s, frequently entertaining the troops overseas.

Like everything else, music in the 1940s was centered around the World War II.

There were several technological advances in recording and playback, however. Music lovers were treated with far superior fidelity than ever before.

Also, home phonograph prices dropped substantially, giving listeners the power to choose what they listened to, instead of giving full control to the local D.J.

    Entering a new school, Milam, for sixth grade in September 1946, Presley was regarded as a loner. The following year, he began bringing his guitar in on a daily basis. He played and sang during lunchtime, and was often teased as a “trashy” kid who played hillbilly music. The family was by then living in a largely African-American neighborhood.”^
