             FRIDAY FORUM
What amazing individuals reside at Mountain Meadows! Friday afternoon, longtime resident, Bob Pohl, had our rapt attention as he told the story of the song, “Lili Marlene” which was so popular during the Second World War. Interesting visuals illustrated his presentation. 

He told us about the poet, Hans Liep, a young German soldier who wrote the original lyrics in his poem, “Song of a Young Sentry” because he was lonely for his girl friend, Lili. Composer, Norbert Schultze, discovered the poem and set it to music in 1938. It was then recorded by German singer, Lale Anderson, just before the outbreak of the Second World War. 

Played on German Radio every night at 10:00, it was listened to by both the German and the British Armies. It buoyed spirits on both sides of the battlefield and brought the soldiers thoughts of home. In 1944, Jimmy Phillips and Tommy Connor collaborated on an English translation which they titled, “Lily of the Lamplight”. Anne Shelton recorded this English version with the Ambrose Orchestra. It was promoted well, and its popularity was established throughout Britain....
