The sentiment in this song just pours out from the opening few bars. I always loved the Vera Lynn version that had such an impact on the soldiers and families from World War 2. When I heard the Ink Spots version, I really fell in love with it.

I played the song on ukulele a few times and it really felt like I should put it on the CD. I knew that it would be the closer. I also use it as my closer during live shows and people really like it. They sing along.

This was the first song of the afternoon session and we had Harry on piano and Pierre on accordion along with Duane on violin and the terrific rhythm section. We did a few takes and it felt great.

We then added Bill Champlin and Ginai and stacked their vocals up. Wow. Better than the Ink Spots and Vera Lynn. I was blown away. I even added a low part on the background vocals.

As we were mixing the song I kept thinking that I'd like the CD to sound like an old radio show (I'm delusional this way) - so we put together a little ending that sealed this recording as a corn ball trip down memory lane. You will have to listen to find out.

Although none of these songs are from my generation directly - they all have a special place in my heart. These are really from my parents generation and I'm so glad they kept playing them and singing them to us.

They are truly classy - swanky.

I hope I did them justice.
