Was "Big Band" leader Glenn Miller killed by the SS in 1944?

Is the "Glenn Miller Story" accurate to Glenn Miller's life?

I would say that it is as accurate as any biography of someone considered a hero during that era. It likely skips any 'seedy' details that might be hiding in the closet but is generally an accurate account of his life.

What does the song in the mood mean by glenn miller?

In The Mood" is an expression that indicates a desire to have sex. It's pretty innocent now, but was a little racy at the time. This was a US #1 for 13 weeks and was Glenn Miller's biggest ever hit. Miller wrote this based on a song he wrote 9 years earlier called "Tar Paper Stomp." In 1977, The Henhouse Five Plus Two (an alias novelty singer Ray Stevens) had a top 40 hit in both the UK and US with his version of this song, which was basically a group of chickens clucking the tune. Beatles producer George Martin had the orchestra play a little bit of this song at the end of "All You Need Is love." It was the first ever Gold Record. It was presented to Glenn Miller in 1941 for his recording of Chattanooga Choo Choo which sold about 1.4 million after it debuted in the 20th Century Fox film "Sun Valley Serenade." I have a gut feeling that by now "In the Mood" has sold quite a lot more. The song, a twelve-bar blues, was composed by(Joe Garland) and Andy Razaf, and arranged by Eddie Durham. The main theme previously appeared under the title of "Tar Paper Stomp", credited to jazz trumpeter/bandleader Wingy Manone, who recorded it several times in 1929 and 1930. A story says that after "In the Mood" became a hit, Manone was paid by Miller and his record company not to contest the copyright. Upon request in his will, "In The Mood" was played at the funeral of Peter Sellers in 1980. It was an ironic joke on Sellers' part; the comedian hated the song, probably from his days as a drummer when it would have been frequently requested. The song was featured in the movies such as Rookie of the Year, The Parent Trap, Swing Girls, Cannery Row (where the protagonists dance to its sound), "Who Slept With Her" (a 2006 Korean comedy) and Derek Yee's 1993 tearjerker C'est la vie, mon chéri starring Anita Yuen. It is also one the tunes nostalgically remembered by Woody Allen in Radio Days. Glenn Miller's version is known to many younger people through its use as the instrumental theme in the sampled medley "Swing the Mood", a number 1 hit in many countries in the late 1980s by Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers.

Can someone tell me if Glenn Miller had the Armed Forces Band out in a V 1 raid?

Glenn Miller was in London in 1944 and witnessed the V-1 raids. But he didn't have the band out during such an attack. On the contrary: In June 1943, Glenn Miller met his musicians in Scotland and brought them to London, but he worried about attacks from German V-1 jet-propelled bombs, so he got the band assigned to quarters in Bedford, about 50 miles to the north. The day after the band left London, a V-1 blew out the front of the building they had vacated. Glenn Miller wouldn't have jeopardized the lives of his musicians.

Is Glenn Miller considered Jazz? And Michael Buble?

Most people know Glenn Miller from his big band period. This can't be considered as jazz. Serious jazz enthusiasts don't consider it as jazz, at least not as good jazz. It's good pop of the early 1940s with jazz elements (improvisations). His earlier recordings are unfortunately not known to the general public and those are jazz. Superb jazz! Listen to the trombone here: Benny Goodman & His Boys (1928) playing "Wolverine Blues": Louisiana Rhythm Kings (1929) playing "That's A Plenty" *** Michael Buble is not really jazz. It's traditional pop. People claiming that he's a jazz singer don't have a clue, sorry...

How did Glenn Miller and Swing Music play a part in the defeat of the Nazis?

Hitler had outlawed any music with a synchopated beat ( a backbeat, such as jazz, rock'n'roll, reggae, bossanova, etc ) deeming it "der niggermusik". He felt that proper music was Wagner. Anyways, only Allied radio stations would play the jazz and swing, the best music of the day. Germans wanted to hear news and music, so they listened to Allied broadcasts such as Voice of America. This allowed Allies to broadcast anti-Nazi propaganda. Also Allied news painted a much different picture of the war, as official German radio insisted they were winning. The penalty for listening to foreign programming was prison camp, and later increased to death. The Germans issued an official peoples radio, the Gerberschnauzen, which could only tune in to German propoganda stations. It was incredibly insensitive. Resourceful Germans found a way to tamper with the sets so they could hear music and unbiased news. When they could hear with their own ears the music that was supposed to be so bad, this "niggermusik" it led them to doubt the Nazi cause. The Allied stations also carried coded broadcasts to assist the German underground. An interesting note: The German industrial/ experimental band Einstürzende Neubauten released a track entitled "Listen with Pain/ Hear with Pain/ Ears are wounds", which consists entirely of extremely unpleasant feedback from a metal coil spring with a microphone attached to it being pounded repeatedly while an anguished voice intones over and over "Gerberschnauzen". Not many people got this, I thought it was brilliant.

I am Miss Glenn Miller Queen. How can I get the other girls to respect me for that?

Honestly they are probably jealous, combined with the fact that if you're demanding they call you by a title I can't think of any jealous girls who are going to actually do that, it will only make it worse. You know what your title is, it shouldn't matter that they do, so don't look to them for recognition, act like it doesn't matter to you and it'll die down. And you usually don't get respect just because you have a title, you get it by being a decent human being and by giving respect to others.

For Guys only!!! Would you dance with a girl at a dance with the title "Miss Glenn Miller Swing Queen?

I hate it when I'm supposed to be leading and the woman fights my lead or tries to backlead a step herself before I'm ready. But I'm always up for something different. If the woman told me ahead of time that she wants to lead the entire dance and she provides a good strong lead, then I would be very interested in seeing how that works out. I think it would be fun to hand over the lead for an entire dance and see what happens. Especially with a woman who holds a competition title.
