Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today theme is simply a natural choice for today.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KecIdlEAKhU - Johnny Horton - Sink the Bismarck!
|"Sink the Bismark" (later "Sink the Bismarck") is a song, written by country music singer Johnny Horton and Tillman Franks, based on the pursuit and eventual sinking of the German battleship Bismarck in May 1941, during World War II. Horton released this song in 1960, where it reached #3 on the charts. Bismark is a common misspelling of the German battleship and Otto von Bismarck. The song's title was corrected for later releases of the song. It was inspired by the 1960 movie Sink the Bismarck!. While the song was used in U.S. theater trailers for the film, it was not used in the film itself.|
