It was in 1944 that Bing Crosby made the Johnny Mercer tune, Accentuate The Positive, a hit in film and on radio. It later became known as one of the songs that got Americans through World War Two. The popular songs of the day, most often written for Broadway, became an unofficial catalogue of music that comforted and connected Americans at home and abroad during hard times—the Spanish Influenza epidemic, the World Wars, Prohibition and the Great Depression.
