Is it possible that I might meet celebrities Like musician Glenn Miller and actor Burt Lancaster in Heaven? by Mike M. Q:

A: My friend Debbie Lang who used to sing with the Glenn Miller orchestra died early this year. I guess you will see her there too!

Was "Big Band" leader Glenn Miller killed by the SS in 1944? by Q: In a new book, entitled "The Glenn Miller Conspiracy", the story is that 1940's Big Band leader Miller (who spoke German and was respected for his music and personality by the average German people and soldiers. And hated by the SS) was recruited by Gen. Eisenhower to serve as a secret envoy, to try and convince some German officers, including Von Rundstedt to end the war early and offer terms of armistice. But, Hitler got wind of the effort and Miller was captured and eventually taken to a Nazi-controlled brothel in Paris where he was interrogated, tortured and killed by members of the SS. The SS were attempting to force Miller to lead a team of American speaking SS men to get close to and assassinate Eisenhower, and Miller refused... Some American G.I.'s saw Miller's body dumped at the brothel, and the U.S. Government covered up this fact to protect Miller's reputation and also to cover up the fact that he was used as a sort of spy for Eisenhower... The "official" details of Miller's death, is that he died over the English Channel in in a plane crash in 1944... Miller is considered MIA and presumed dead... Sorry, Miller was not killed by friendly fire... The guy who claimed responsibility for the bomb drop lied. The RAF dropped their excess payloads in the North sea, not the Channel, it was against policy to drop their payloads in the Channel in fear of killing thier own... Ok answer, but not good enough...

A: If you're asking my opinion, I still believe he was killed by "friendly fire", as the British dropped off hot ammo before landing their planes following an aborted mission as Major Miller's plane accidentally strayed into the area. That story is not disproved.

What's your favorite Glenn Miller song? by Rose Tyler Q: First, if you clicked this question, just wondering WHO Glenn Miller was, go here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_Miller. Second, if you're already a fan, what's your fave song? I think this kind of music is great and people should hear it. Sadly, you can't hear much of anything on the radio today except people who talk-sing, scream, or sing horribly; no instruments or skill in playing them, just synthesizers/drum machines....oh well. Tell me your fave song, or if you're a new fan, or whatever! thanks. . *__xoxo__*. mine is the St. Louis Blues March or I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo

A: In the Mood all the way! But if i wanted the best answer, I should probably say St. Louis Blues March!

Glenn Miller Limited Edition questions? by dabert234 Q: After my grandfather passed away, we found a copy of a Glenn Miller Limited Edition Record Collection, 5 records. The date is sometime in the 40's I'm guessing, its limited edition number is QQ 386. While its not in great condition (we took it to a record guy, he recovered as much of the music as possible). But I'm curious as to what its worth (we won't be selling it, its of sentimental value to my family, just curiosity) It was published by RCA Victor, and each record says limited Collectors Issue. The binding is white leather with gold writing, any info on it would be greatly appreciated.

A: These people here might help you, http://www.glennmillerorchestra.com/collectors_corner.html and here is a list of people selling Glenn Miller Collections, with prices, so you can get an idea. As a gneral rule, the value of a set is how badly a collector wants it ... http://www.musicstack.com/album/glenn_miller/limited_edition,vol_2__lpz_second

Is the "Glenn Miller Story" accurate to Glenn Miller's life? by dancinqueen Q: I love Glenn Miller, but I was wondering if the biographical movie of his life was truly accurate. The movie was the only time I had heard anything about his personal life outside of his orchestra.

A: I would say that it is as accurate as any biography of someone considered a hero during that era. It likely skips any 'seedy' details that might be hiding in the closet but is generally an accurate account of his life.

What does the song in the mood mean by glenn miller? by Wassum the Passum Q: i need to know what the lyrics mean and the history behind it.

A: In The Mood" is an expression that indicates a desire to have sex. It's pretty innocent now, but was a little racy at the time. This was a US #1 for 13 weeks and was Glenn Miller's biggest ever hit. Miller wrote this based on a song he wrote 9 years earlier called "Tar Paper Stomp." In 1977, The Henhouse Five Plus Two (an alias novelty singer Ray Stevens) had a top 40 hit in both the UK and US with his version of this song, which was basically a group of chickens clucking the tune. Beatles producer George Martin had the orchestra play a little bit of this song at the end of "All You Need Is love." It was the first ever Gold Record. It was presented to Glenn Miller in 1941 for his recording of Chattanooga Choo Choo which sold about 1.4 million after it debuted in the 20th Century Fox film "Sun Valley Serenade." I have a gut feeling that by now "In the Mood" has sold quite a lot more. The song, a twelve-bar blues, was composed by(Joe Garland) and Andy Razaf, and arranged by Eddie Durham. The main theme previously appeared under the title of "Tar Paper Stomp", credited to jazz trumpeter/bandleader Wingy Manone, who recorded it several times in 1929 and 1930. A story says that after "In the Mood" became a hit, Manone was paid by Miller and his record company not to contest the copyright. Upon request in his will, "In The Mood" was played at the funeral of Peter Sellers in 1980. It was an ironic joke on Sellers' part; the comedian hated the song, probably from his days as a drummer when it would have been frequently requested. The song was featured in the movies such as Rookie of the Year, The Parent Trap, Swing Girls, Cannery Row (where the protagonists dance to its sound), "Who Slept With Her" (a 2006 Korean comedy) and Derek Yee's 1993 tearjerker C'est la vie, mon chéri starring Anita Yuen. It is also one the tunes nostalgically remembered by Woody Allen in Radio Days. Glenn Miller's version is known to many younger people through its use as the instrumental theme in the sampled medley "Swing the Mood", a number 1 hit in many countries in the late 1980s by Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers.

Does anyone know Kalamazoo, by Glenn Miller? by namvu74 Q: I have an assignment for my jazz band class, and i need to tell the teacher everything that happens in this song, like when what instrument plays, when solos from what instruments start, when they start singing, background instruments, etc.. My part is piano, and i originally came from an orchestra background, so i'm not familiar with jazz instruments like trumpet and trombone. So that's why i need help! (: So, please give a brief walkthrough of the song, describing the instruments being used and when they are used. Thanks.

A: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H I got a gal in Kalamazoo Don't want to boast but I know she's the toast of Kalamazoo (Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo) I think the best thing to do is find a recording http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFv_PoZ2iP0

What kind of song would you say "In the mood" By Glenn Miller is? by baylin trager Q:

A: Swing.

Can someone tell me if Glenn Miller had the Armed Forces Band out in a V 1 raid? by Dan W Q:

A: Glenn Miller was in London in 1944 and witnessed the V-1 raids. But he didn't have the band out during such an attack. On the contrary: In June 1943, Glenn Miller met his musicians in Scotland and brought them to London, but he worried about attacks from German V-1 jet-propelled bombs, so he got the band assigned to quarters in Bedford, about 50 miles to the north. The day after the band left London, a V-1 blew out the front of the building they had vacated. Glenn Miller wouldn't have jeopardized the lives of his musicians.

Musicians Durng WWII 1940-1945? Glenn Miller Anymore? by Daniel S Q: I am doing a bunch of WWII projects for my family, and preserving memorabilia and was thinking of some artists during that time other then Glenn Miller, Andrew Sisters, Benny Goodman. Are they're anymore then that? I know there is, but as for the popular ones? Any music is good, doesn't matter just during that era.

A: Oh my goodness, that is where the best Jazz music came from. There is also Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Bix Beiderbecke, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Charlie Parker. Also while Glenn Miller himself is an excellent Jazz musician, the Glenn Miller was also the leader of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, they came up with my favorite Jazz chart "In the Mood". These musicians were really big between 1930's and 1950's I hope that helps a little bit

could someone please email me a copy of in the mood by glenn miller? the alto sax version.? by Q: id like the full version please. ive looked everywhere and ive only found the 1st page of it. and i dont wanna pay any money. so if anyone has it, please send it to me. please and thank you.

A: Totally agree with the top poster. I had a few bootleg copies of my band floating around in the USA but, since I am Canadian, I have to take U.S. lawyers to fight this copyright infringement. So dude. Take $10 and buy ir online and support the composer / authors instead of stealing it or asking a free copy which is just as bad.

What instruments did Glenn Miller arrange/write for? by [email protected] Q:

A: Well, Glen Miller himself played the trombone, but if a composition was written for his band I suppose music would have been written for all instruments. I understand that Miller had a team of arrangers who did this.

Is Glenn Miller considered Jazz? And Michael Buble? by Surreal Q: I know I should know this, seeing as I was in music for seven years...but I'm drawing a blank here. Is Glenn Miller Jazz? And what about Michael Buble?

A: Most people know Glenn Miller from his big band period. This can't be considered as jazz. Serious jazz enthusiasts don't consider it as jazz, at least not as good jazz. It's good pop of the early 1940s with jazz elements (improvisations). His earlier recordings are unfortunately not known to the general public and those are jazz. Superb jazz! Listen to the trombone here: Benny Goodman & His Boys (1928) playing "Wolverine Blues": http://www.redhotjazz.com/songs/goodman/WolverineBlues.ram Louisiana Rhythm Kings (1929) playing "That's A Plenty" http://www.redhotjazz.com/Songs/LRK/thatsaplenty.ram *** Michael Buble is not really jazz. It's traditional pop. People claiming that he's a jazz singer don't have a clue, sorry...

A: Specifically it's big band swing music, which is one style of jazz.

How did Glenn Miller and Swing Music play a part in the defeat of the Nazis? by 25 or 6 to 4 Q: I'm not a wierdo this is a school question on a take-home test. I have half the answer I just don't know what it did to Hitler to get him to stop the war.

A: Hitler had outlawed any music with a synchopated beat ( a backbeat, such as jazz, rock'n'roll, reggae, bossanova, etc ) deeming it "der niggermusik". He felt that proper music was Wagner. Anyways, only Allied radio stations would play the jazz and swing, the best music of the day. Germans wanted to hear news and music, so they listened to Allied broadcasts such as Voice of America. This allowed Allies to broadcast anti-Nazi propaganda. Also Allied news painted a much different picture of the war, as official German radio insisted they were winning. The penalty for listening to foreign programming was prison camp, and later increased to death. The Germans issued an official peoples radio, the Gerberschnauzen, which could only tune in to German propoganda stations. It was incredibly insensitive. Resourceful Germans found a way to tamper with the sets so they could hear music and unbiased news. When they could hear with their own ears the music that was supposed to be so bad, this "niggermusik" it led them to doubt the Nazi cause. The Allied stations also carried coded broadcasts to assist the German underground. An interesting note: The German industrial/ experimental band Einstürzende Neubauten released a track entitled "Listen with Pain/ Hear with Pain/ Ears are wounds", which consists entirely of extremely unpleasant feedback from a metal coil spring with a microphone attached to it being pounded repeatedly while an anguished voice intones over and over "Gerberschnauzen". Not many people got this, I thought it was brilliant.

A: String of Pearls by Glenn Miller Indian Summer by Glenn Miller

I am Miss Glenn Miller Queen. How can I get the other girls to respect me for that? by operajester Q: All the other girls have treated me badly ever since I got my title. Every time I go to a dance someone steals my date. I have a lot of guys flirting with me and the other girls start teasing me about it. They have stolen my tiaras and called me fowl names. The other girls don't address me properly. They are suposed to address me as Your Swingness, but they call me KJ instead. I don't like that. How can I tell them I deserve respect withtout getting teased even more? Why are they treating me like this?

A: Honestly they are probably jealous, combined with the fact that if you're demanding they call you by a title I can't think of any jealous girls who are going to actually do that, it will only make it worse. You know what your title is, it shouldn't matter that they do, so don't look to them for recognition, act like it doesn't matter to you and it'll die down. And you usually don't get respect just because you have a title, you get it by being a decent human being and by giving respect to others.

How did the Big Band-leader Glenn Miller die at the end of 1944? by Yngve Q: He flew from Twinwood Military Airfield outside Bedford to Paris on the 15th of december 1944. But the flight never reached its destination. What happened?

A: The web site I looked at said that it still remains a mystery since the wreckage of the plane was never found. A popular theory is that the plane was accidentally bombed by RAF bombers over the English Channel.

What is the tv advert with the music 'In the mood' by Glenn Miller? by Q: I heard this music in school and I can't think of the advert i saw it on. Please help!

A: That's really bugging ME now, I know I've heard it quite recently and I'm pretty sure it's in one of the furniture or kitchen sale adverts but just can't think which one it is. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful but if it's any consolation this will be on my mind for days if I can't remember which advert it's from. :(

For Guys only!!! Would you dance with a girl at a dance with the title "Miss Glenn Miller Swing Queen? by operajester Q: I am Miss Glenn Miller Swing Queen. Would it be ok to tell my dancing partener I get to lead when we dance? I am asking because Glenn Miller Swing Queens always get to lead.

A: I hate it when I'm supposed to be leading and the woman fights my lead or tries to backlead a step herself before I'm ready. But I'm always up for something different. If the woman told me ahead of time that she wants to lead the entire dance and she provides a good strong lead, then I would be very interested in seeing how that works out. I think it would be fun to hand over the lead for an entire dance and see what happens. Especially with a woman who holds a competition title.
