SONG RECORDED ON THIS DAY IN 1941


“Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”was nominated for an Academy
Award
for Best Song.

The song “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” was recorded at Decca‘s
Hollywood studios nearly a year before the United States entered
World War II but after the start of a peacetime draft to expand the
armed forces in anticipation of American involvement in war. The
flipside was "Bounce Me, Brother, With a Solid Four". The Andrews
Sisters
introduced both songs in the Abbott and Costello 1941 film,
Buck Privates
which was in production when they made the record.
