If you depart from Galveston, it'll have Dubya's father and his country band in their classic cowboy outfits. In other words, don't start from Galveston.

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston
Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston
I still see her standing by the water
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And is she waiting there for me?
On the beach where we used to run
Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
Before I dry the tears she's crying
Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
At Galveston, at Galveston
Glenn Campbell or Glenn Milller. Take your pick. ;)
I was thinking some Hawaiian music might be a good idea for the submarine's sound system too.
BTW is it me or has this thread gone off the rails?

I've lived in Houston for three years, trust me, it's just ranches and desert. I took that pic' myself:p.

Not fond of jazz at all, though a bit of swing or big band is nice enough. We better start digging up some ol' Glenn Miller for our sub crews in the Pacific. Moonlight Serenade, Penn 6-500, Chatanooga Choo Choo - my U-48 crew don't mind a bit of that. :cool:
Though I prefer the German music of the 30s and some traditional Irish.

On my boat only German military marches are allowed. It doesn`t matter if it serves the US Navy or die Kriegsmarine. Imagine a US boat playing "U-boot Lied";)

I'd rather not.

Already using my Napster account to get some good ole Big Band music! SHIV may not have it.......But I will! :rock:

You might like my JUKEBOX (http://glewis.us/v7th_Recon/jukeboxlabeled1.htm). Four pages and about 88 songs from the WWII era...mostly Big Band.
I have a huge collection of period Jazz, swing and Big band from the US, France, Belgium, Britain and even Germany (the Infamous Charlie and His orchestra.)
A Bit of Tommy Dorsey, followed by Woody Herman and then some Django with Spike Jones to finish should fill the bill nicely on those long patrols.

You know, if we start now, we could probably compile one hell'uva playlist by the time 1 Qtr 2007 rolls around! Problem is, how could we share it easily and legally?:hmm:

A song popular on both 'sides' was "Lile Marlene". I have the English version done by Vera Lynn and the German version sung by Marlena Ditreich on page 3 of my Jukebox.

What would be great would be the music of Ray Anthony , since he played for the sub crews on Midway and then move on later to Pearl. I was in the boats at that time and enjoyed him very much. His sound was along the lines of Glenn Miller so I think everone would enjoy it. Also on patrol we enjoyed Diana Shore records.

Then you might enjoy The Ray Anthony Show (http://glewis.us/v7th_Recon/music/RayAnthonyShow.mp3) and Dina Shore & 'Blue Skies' (http://glewis.us/v7th_Recon/music/DinaShoreBlueSkies.mp3).
These are radio shows. The Ray Anthony Show runs about 30 minutes and Dina Shore about 15 minutes. Hope you like them.

I found out that if you have XM raidio or sirius sat- then you can get all of the old music you can handle...Try it". I have "SIRIUS" but both are very good. :up:

My father was on Tin Cans with the carriers, when Pearl was attacked. Then went to sub duty. I think he was out of Brisbane or possiably Fremantle, or both. I'm not sure anymore as he passed away in 1984 and I don't have any of his service records. I do know he was on 3 different subs, but which ones?? alass I don't know:cry:
Where you bassed out of Pearl or ???? Which boat(s) were you on?? What was it really like to be a submariner at that time?? My father wouldn't talk much about his patrols and It's been so long now I have forgotten much of what he did say:cry:
Would you mind sharing your times with us, Sir??
