“Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?”

Vera Lynn was a British singer from the WWII era. She passed away on June 18th at the age of 103.

This is “We’ll Meet Again” by Vera Lynn from 1939. You’ve likely heard this song, since it has been used in everything from the movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and at least one episode of American Horror Story. And much in between.

This is the song “Vera” by Pink Floyd from the album The Wall. The title of the post is lifted from this song.

Hat tip to Rolling Stone Magazine. And Donald McKenzie.
