It's a very old piece, 1892. 'Gaisen 凱旋' (Victorious return).

Aha, sorry that I missed another piece. This was Senyu 戦友 (comrade-in-arms).

This lyrics mourned a fallen comrade. Its pessimistic tone, and even that in lyrics the soldier aided the comrade in assault 'against discipline', made the army authority to prohibit this song, but it was loved by soldiers, especially those fighting several years from 1930s in China theater.

The World at War

Post by El_Prez » 14 Sep 2018 00:58

Hello everyone, I allow myself to relaunch the subject because I am also looking for music used by the series. (And sorry for my English, I use google translation :D)

I'm looking for three. The first two are in episode 12 on Allied bombing. At 3 minutes 50 there is a German song. Then it may be off topic (sorry) but there is also an English music that I would like to know and which is 4 minutes 12 seconds.

Here is the link of the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P8Xu3n ... fn&index=7

Finally the third music is in episode 8 on the desert war. We hear it three times, the first time from 2 minutes 23. The second time at 3 minutes 4 and the third time is at 7 minutes 30 seconds.

Here is the link for the episode: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3p7c1h


Thank you in advance for your help and sorry if I was off topic or too bad in English ;)

Hello and :welcome:

Both tunes (there are two) are off-topic actually (in the Music of the Reich section), since they're not German-related. But nevermind this time, since it's your first post.

This is a bomber cover of the famous "My Bonnie". What you thought was a German song was actually the refrain: "Bring back, bring back, oh bring back my bomber and me..." (Later you can hear a solo voice singing: "The controller said: 'How came you missed them?' And I leave you to guess what I said...")

You may hear the full song here https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/80024809

I don't know what the melody is, but it was played all three times during the Italian scenes... (So, probably something Italian- or British-related.)

Cheers,
Ivan

Thank you very much for the answer. And thank you for your indulgence. :)
I thought it was two different music, sorry. In any case I am ashamed to have confused English and German. x)

As for the last music, I can listen and look for Italian music of the 30s / 40s I do not find unfortunately.

Thanks again for not having deleted me because I do not know which forum / topic to ask ;)

No problems, it was fun listening to a bomber cover of "My Bonnie" ;) (Note that it's often very hard to recognise language in a choral recording.)

Cheers,
Ivan
