Song of the Day #74

Song of the Day (a): Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B, words by Don Raye, music by Hughie Prince, was performed by the Andrews Sisters, and was nominated for a 1941 Academy Award as "Best Song" (from the Abbott and Costello film, "Buck Privates"). It was also recorded in 1972, in an updated, revved-up version by Bette Midler, who dubbed all three vocal parts, and took it into the Billboard Top Ten. Reminds me of my Uncle Sam, a veteran of World War II. For Veteran's Day! Check out amazon.com for a clip.
