Well, it's Memorial Day here in the US; I thought it would be nice to play Enrico Caruso's rendition of 'Over There' as a tribute to the US soliders who lost their lives while in military service.
Enrico Caruso was an Italian opera singer and one of the greatest tenors in history. Caruso was also the most popular singer in any genre in the first two decades of the 20th Century and one of the most important pioneers of recorded music. Caruso's popular recordings and his extraordinary voice, known for its mature power, beauty and unequalled richness of tone, made him perhaps the best-known operatic star of his era. He is in my opinion THE best tenor of all time.
"Over There" is a 1917 song popular with United States soldiers in both world wars. It was written by George M. Cohan during World War I.
Here Caruso sings 'Over There' in a recording from WWI.
As I am a military aviation fanatic, I've decided to include photos and a little information on three US fighter aces who lost their lives during WWII.
Hope you enjoy and remember to honor the memory the soldiers who perished in the line of combat.
