Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?

Remember how she said that we would meet again some sunny day?

Wondering what has become of her? She is in fact still alive; she just turned 100 yesterday, and has an album coming out next month.

Well, no, not really. As a Yank, I was unaware she existed outside the aforementioned Pink Floyd lyrics.

From Robyn Hitchcock: “The Yip Song” (excerpt)

This old man, he was flesh - they wheeled him in upon a trolley
Vera Lynn, Vera Lynn
Draw a window on his skin now
Vera Lynn nin nin nin nin nin nin nin nin nin
Vera Lynn nin nin nin nin nin nin nin nin nin

Fun Fact: “The Little Boy that Santa Forgot” sung by Vera plays in the opening scene of The Wall.
