Hits of '40 Review

by Heather Phares

Living Era's Hits of '40 takes a nostalgic look at the year's most popular songs, including songs from the Inkspots, Jimmy Dorsey, and Vera Lynn. The Andrews Sisters' "Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar," Glenn Miller's "Pennsylvania 6-5000" and "Tuxedo Junction," and Bing Crosby's "Only Forever" and "I Haven't Time to Be a Millionaire" are just a few of the highlights in this 25-song look at 1940.
