    She ain't in the past tense, you know.

    Yes, I have a CD of her best hits and she's always been one of my favorites, even though I'm a Yank. Besides WCOD, she is also well known for "We'll Meet Again," and her recording of that number is heard at the end of Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" when all the nuclear weapons are blossoming into mushroom clouds.

    Besides her sweet, homey voice, she also has world-class teeth. Very British. You don't see teeth like that on an American.

    I remember the name, as well as the song. But as a yank, I wasn't raised hearing that

    singer on the radio or on records. I gather she was a popular singer of the time with

    a national popularity, for singing patriotic songs for the British empire. She has the

    look of an American though, and has the nicest smile and a very pretty voice.

    I was a small child during that time. I do remember her on the radio, though! i knew most of the songs by heart, I was only 4 years old but that is what I liked to do best , listen to music on radio and memorize the songs. I liked the war songs the best, you know the ones that said, We Would win!

    I remember hearing her recordings on the radio in WW2. I was just a kid but my memory is scary. Ask my wife.

    Saw her photos and some film where she visited the troops. Lovely woman and the image that most men of that era picture English girls to look like. That is until Julie Christie and Sarah Brightman came along.

    I was only very vaguely aware of the song and don't remember hearing of this artist. This is the first time I have ever really listened to this song. I really love it. I am into the nostalgia of that era and I don't know how this one slipped my attention. A beautiful song, and a beautiful woman. Thanks for posting this.

    She is still alive and is either 94 or 95 I believe. She has never lost her popularity ever since she became famous and will always be brought on stage for special events, especially anything connected with our armed forces here in the U.K.

    No, not her.

    I thought I remembered the name, I was thinking she was an actress during the 40's.

    The only time I heard her name was in Pink Floyd's The Wall lyric. Now I understand, reading your answers.
