Vera Lynn - you'll never meet my son again now.
As my friend Frank would say, it'll never be "whalemeat again" any more.
A great loss: I don't think I don't like _any_ of her songs.
As for WMA, I actually slightly prefer the earlier version with Arthur
Young playing the Hammond Novachord - not only because it feels more
intimate than with full band, but it also contains the two introductory
lines, which I rather like.
And also, the opening notes - note, really - of the band version makes
me, and I'm sure many others, see black-and-white films of nuclear
tests. (I was one of the school projectionists when we had that film.)
It also triggers my eyes to water ...
