Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

January 2, 1941 Andrews Sisters record "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy"

The Andrews Sisters record "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" on Decca Records. The song, which became a classic World War II hit, was heard in the Abbott and Costello film Buck Privates. The Andrews Sisters were the most popular "girl group" of their time, selling millions of records and setting the stage for the "girl group era" of the mid-1960s, which spawned hundreds of all-women vocal groups including The Shirelles, The Shangri-las, The Crystals, and The Supremes.

The Queen of Outrageous, Bette Midler does a great job with this song, half a century later.

Youtube also has vids of the Andrews Sisters appearing on Dean Martins' show, if you like later appearances.
