Songs my Mother sang to me…. perfume of hope and heaven

During WW2 The American GI’s used to whistle this song, surely in unimaginable circumstances. My mother no doubt heard her Mother singing it too inside the internment camps. The soldiers used to called  ‘she gotta yo yo’ but it’s Shi nano yoru or China nights in Japanese.  Tells me that love songs catch on and always go platinum if even in the midst of horrors, love sows its dreams.
