WWII Week! (part 2 & 1/2)

Dear Muse,

However irregular it is to do two posts in one day, I found another song that belongs in the category of "songs the fighting forces listened to during WWII." However, as it's the exact opposite of upbeat, I didn't think it quite fit into the previous post. This Youtube video presents "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," first sung by Judy Garland in 1944's Meet Me in St. Louis. Although the song isn't connected to WWII in the film (since the film takes place between 1903 and 1904), I believe it was interpreted at the time as an address to U.S. soldiers.
