Listen and Download the Best 1940s Music Now
1940s music happens to be one of the biggest times in America when it came to the areas of Pop, Jazz, and Country genres of music. There are plenty of great songs during this time period that are simply timeless and many others are songs that still play well into the late 2000's. The fact that 1940s Music can still be effective in touching the hearts of people in the late 2000's that weren't even born during that time says a lot about how powerful music of that time really is. Will there be people born in 2050 listening to the music of 2014 60 or 70 years from that time? Maybe the music of 2014 would only be mentioned in a documentary fashion by the year 2050.
What is it about 1940s Music that makes it so amazing that we are even writing about it in the year 2014? Well, when researching back into that time there are actually a lot of songs that have been carried into this time via advertisements, movies (classic and new releases), sound clips in current songs and commercials. It seems as though when a company wants to go for a timeless or classic feel for their product or service, they reach back to 1940s Music to help sell their image. What we plan to do here is celebrate 1940s Music with our own list of songs that have survived well into even 2014.
