SciFi SongFest, Songs 140-142

140. Vera Lynn, “We’ll Meet Again” (1939), as featured in Dr. Strangelove (1964):

This song was never originally intended to be about surviving in government bunkers during a nuclear war, but thanks to Kubrick’s use of it at the end of his dark Cold War comedy, it’s difficult nowadays to think of it in any other connection:

141. Megadeth, “Hangar 18” (1990):

And this song is about life in one of those bunkers:

142. Leslie Fish, “Digwell Carol” (1989):

And this song – like Fish’s similarly themed “Hello! Remember Us,” featured in an earlier installment of this SciFi SongFest – takes the perspective of those left outside the bunkers. (“Hello! Remember Us” is better, though.)
