TOMMY DORSEY with FRANK SINATRA & THE PIED PIPERS : I’LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN

Μια ακόμα ιστορική ηχογράφηση από το 1940 είναι η πρώτη “επιτυχία” του Frank Sinatra – με το φωνητικό γκρουπ των Pied Pipers και την ορχήστρα τoυ Tommy Dorsey.
Ένα τραγούδι της Καναδής συνθέτριας
Ruth Lowe.

Another historic recording from the year of 1940 is this one : the first Frank Sinatra’s hit – with the vocal group of The Pied Pipers and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.
A song written by the Canadian composer
Ruth Lowe.

I’ ll never smile again
Until I smile at you
I’ll never laugh again
What good would it do?
For tears would fill my eyes
My heart would realize
That our romance is through
I’ll never love again
I’m so in love with you
I’ll never thrill again
To somebody new
Within my heart
I know I will never start
To smile again
Until I smile at you
Within my heart
I know I will never start
To smile again
Until I smile at you

    some of the best of Sinatra is when he sang with this orchestra – am very interested in the Greek history that goes with these posts – to think that this was being played and recorded whilst the war was in full pelt. Surreal!

    The war was a horrible happening. Many today are – I don’t even have words –
    Well, some think it was a hoax. Society is moving backwards.
    This song is moving, and the scratchy record adds a poignancy.
    We traditionally wear Poppies here in Cahnada, to remember, and honour the troops.
    Many employers would NOT let their staff wear the Poppies to work. They said it was glorifying war. Who came up with that one?
    Anyway, our government actually passed a law making it illegal for employers to ban Poppy wearing.
    The gov’t cited the tradition is to honour the troops, and TO NOT FORGET THE HORROR!

      That was the right decision, according to my opinion. I don’t agree at all with people wanting to erase memories of war, combining it with some mumbo-jumbo “against nationalism”.
      Avoiding speaking about the horrors of war is the easiest way to repeat them.
