it’s been a while since I last posted to forum, as my “brother-in-arms” is taking on a bit of hiatus from Axis & Allies to build a business. However, we have planned a weekend-long G40 live match somewhere around late April. As I tend to get excited easily I have already started to gather up World War 2 era songs for a Spotify playlist to bring atmosphere. Sure, ready-made lists already exists, but I find them to lean bit too much to American and British music.
I now have some 120 songs spanning almost 7 hours, but as we all know G40 games tend to last lot longer. This is why I kindly ask for your help and expertise to expand my playlist and uncover more songs from the said era!
I have tried to build a balance where every nation participated in the war have at least some representation. As a Finn, I started with Finnish songs and marches, then moved on to the German marches. I haven’t have much luck finding German popular music from the time. I then added a bunch of American and British music. I was also able to track down few Russian and Italian wartime songs. A friend of mine helped me find Japanese marches and pop songs, but I couldn’t resist the urge to throw in some traditional Japanese music also. Edith Piaf is of course ‘a must’. As to much surprise there exists fragments of speeches from Chamblerlain, Churchill, Roosevelt and even Hitler on Spotify, so I added some of those to the mix.
So, I pretty much have American/British, Finnish and German portion covered. This is where you guys come in; help me balance out my playlist. I’m particularly interested in “minor power” songs; Axis satellite states, Poland, Jugoslavia, Norway, Greece and so on. Of course all suggestions are welcome!
Thank you in advance!
