We'll Meet Again.

Vera Lynn 100

Here, for New Year's Eve 2017, is WWII's Vera Lynn —now Dame Vera Lynn and still releasing recordings at 100— singing her hit We'll Meet Again (as reprised by Stanley Kubrick at the conclusion of his 1964 film classic, "Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love").


We'll meet again,
Don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.

Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do,
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

And, will you please say hello,
To the folks that I know.
Tell them that I won't be long.
They'll be happy to know that, as you saw me go,
I was singing this song.

We'll meet again,
Don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.

Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do,
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know,
Tell them I won't be long,
They'll be happy to know that as you saw me go,
I was singing this song.

We'll meet again,
Don't know where, don't know when.
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.

And, so, to close the year, I wish you appreciation for those loved and lost; felicitations for good health, good luck, and good fermentables; and gratitude for your perusal of this little blog. Next year, Ninkasi willing, may we meet again.

  • Dame Vera Margaret Lynn, widely known as "the Forces' Sweetheart," is an English singer of traditional pop, a songwriter, and an actress, whose musical recordings and performances were enormously popular during the Second World War. The songs most associated with her are "We'll Meet Again", "The White Cliffs of Dover", "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and "There'll Always Be an England." In 2009, at age 92, she became the oldest living artist to top the UK Albums Chart, with "We'll Meet Again: The Very Best of Vera Lynn." This year, she released the album, "Vera Lynn 100," to commemorate her centennial year. It was a number 3 hit making her the oldest recording artist in the world and the first centenarian performer ever to have an album in the charts. She has devoted much time and energy to charity work connected with ex-servicemen, disabled children, and breast cancer. In 2000, she was named the Briton who best exemplified the spirit of the 20th century.
