(See my other WWII related posts) – The song “Sentimental Journey” was published in 1944. It was written by Les Brown and Ben Homer, and the lyrics were written by Bud Green. It was recorded in 1945 with Doris Day as the lead singer. The recording was released as the war in Europe was headed to a close. The song reached the Billboard charts on March 29, 1945, and lasted 23 weeks climbing all the way to the #1 spot. Because of the timing of the release, the song was popular with troops returning from the European Theater.
