Dr. Strangelove – We’ll Meet Again by Vera Lynn

Tonight, I was inspired to track down the song “We’ll Meet Again” which was played in the final scenes of Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.”

I found it on Amazon.com thanks to a customer review I found here. It’s on a compilation called “Fabulous Fifties Divas Sing Their Hard-To-Find Hits” from Hit Parade records, 2006.

There is a compilation called “Dr. Strangelove: Music From The Films Of Stanley Kubrick (Film Score Anthology)” but a huge gripe on Amazon.com is that the version of “We’ll Meet Again” is not the same version as in the movie.

If you go to the iTunes site you won’t find the film-version of the song (as of today’s posting). I listened to the different versions of the track done by Vera Lynn on iTunes, but they all sounded different from the film, and from the snippets I could tell they wouldn’t be as good or satisfying to listen to. The film’s version is beautifully done and fits the movie so well…

If you haven’t seen Dr. Strangelove yet, and plan to, you may not want to watch the linked youtube video below:

  2. Thanks for your research. I hear that final song in my head frequently. I wanted to get the film version on iTunes as well, but couldn’t find it. If you ever find it please post.

    Thanx
