(There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover" is a popular World War II song composed in 1941 by Walter Kent to lyrics by Nat Burton. Made famous in Vera Lynn's 1942 version, it was one of Lynn's best-known recordings and among the most popular World War II tunes. The song was written about a year after the Royal Air Force and German aircraft had been fighting over southern England, including the white cliffs of Dover, in the Battle of Britain
A version of the song, with a full orchestra and Alexander Armstrong’s vocals added to Vera’s sublime original recording, is included on new album Vera Lynn 100. So what would it mean to the birthday girl to topple all-conquering Ed Sheeran from the top of the charts? I already am very satisfied by my career.
