Song: White Cliffs Of Dover, (They'll Be Bluebirds Over The)

Written by Nat Burton, Walter Kent

(There`ll Be Bluebirds Over) THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER is one of the most moving of all the World War II era pop classics. It became a sensational hit in 1942, as it reflected the feelings of all the Allies towards the British people in their brave fight against Hitler. Originally released in the U.S. by bandleader Kay Kyser, four other artists also hit the top 20 with this song that year: Glenn Miller, Sammy Kaye, Jimmy Dorsey and Kate Smith. Other artists who`ve recorded this standard include: Vera Lynn, Jim Reeves, Connie Francis, Bing Crosby, and The Righteous Brothers. In June 1995 Robson and Jerome’s version went to No. 1 in the UK in a medley with “Unchained Melody”.
