  • Seeing your wonderful list of movie tunes made me want to make a similar list of my own. But, the first thing I did was break out my Andrews Sisters' CD and play "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B". I LOVE that song! And the Andrews Sisters sing it so well. Thanks so much for posting this. Great category!

  • I also love listening to "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" it's such a upbeat and fun song.
