Music of WWII: “I’ll Walk Beside You”

(See my other Music and WWII related posts) – The song “I’ll Walk Beside You” was written by Alan Murray and Edward Lockton. It is usually associated with singer John McCormack.

The song was introduced in 1939 and was popular in the UK during WWII. A British movie with the same name, “I’ll Walk Beside You“, came out in 1943 and featured the song. The movie was moderately successful rating 5.2/10 on IMDB.
