Woody Guthrie
This Land Is Your Land
Woody Guthrie wrote "This Land Is Your Land" in 1940 as a critical response to Irving Berlin's God Bless America. Guthrie had some communist ideologies and the song was originally titled "God Bless America For Me". He rewrote the lyrics more than once and the song became an American Folksong. This Land Is Your Land was not officially published until 1945 and then only in a small mimeographed booklet. In less than 20 years the song would be used in American school music programs. In 2002 the song was chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

Dinah Shore
The Anniversary Song
The song is actually called "Waves of the Danube" and was written by Iosif Ivanovici in 1880. In 1946 Al Jolson and Saul Chaplin published the song as their own, adding lyrics in English, and this is the song that would become a hit. The song is often confused with the Anniversary Waltz, but it is a completely different piece.

Frank Sinatra
Always was originally written by Irving Berlin in 1925 as a gift for his wife. He also gave her the royalties. This song is a timeless romantic piece that celebrates a love that will never go away. This would be the second time the song would hit the charts since it was first written.

Dick Haymes
How Are Things In Glocca Morra

Finian's Rainbow is a Broadway musical that tells the story of an Irish man and his daughter who travel Ireland from America in order to bury a pot of gold that had been stolen from a leprechaun. Finian wants to bury the gold next to Fort Knox to make it grow. The leprechaun follows Finian to get his gold back and the story explodes. How Are Things In Glocca Morra is a song Finian's daughter Sharon sings about her longing for her Irish home.

Bing Crosby
The Whiffenpoof Song
The Whiffenpoof song is actually the closing song of the Yale College's Whiffenpoofs, an acappella music group. The song was written in 1909 and became popular in the twenties when it was recorded by Rudy Vallee. But would make another hit when Crosby recorded it in 1947. The song did not stop in its popularity there, but would continue to be used in movies and television shows.

Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters
There's No Business Like Show Business


Ethel Merman introduced this song in Annie get Your Gun in 1945. Written by Irving Berlin the song would become the unofficial anthem of aspiring stage stars everywhere. There's No Business Like Show Business could well be considered Merman's signature song, though, some would argue that Everything's Coming Up Roses could also vie for that title. The song would also become the title of a movie musical whose cast included Ethel Merman, Dan Daly, Donald O'Connor, Mitzi Gaynor, and Marylyn Monroe
