The great thing about wartime propaganda songs is that you don't have to apologize for their cheesiness -- they weren't about music, they were about getting a message across in a pleasant and catchy (or arresting or tearjerking) way, and with a few decades' distance from the horrors of war itself, the songs that kept enthusiasm high on the home front during the hostilities can be enjoyed for the kitsch and nostalgia factor. This collection of songs that were popular in the U.S. during World War II is the sixth in Trikont's nostalgia series, and it's one of the most interesting. It includes obvious selections like Eddie Cantor's "Coming In on a Wing and a Prayer," Johnny Bond's humorous (and slyly scatological) "Der Fuhrer's Face," and the Southern Sons Quartet's eerie rendition of "Praise the Lord & Pass the Ammunition." There are radio announcements encouraging the planting of victory gardens and the purchase of war bonds. Most curious, and rather chilling, is an adaptation of "You're Driving Me Crazy" by the German propaganda jazz band Charlie & His Orchestra; in their version, Winston Churchill expresses his frustration with America and the Jews. ~ Rick Anderson
