Record breaking Dame Vera

by Banana Crumble | May 18, 2020

Dame Vera Lynn was the Force’s Sweetheart during the war and her “We’ll Meet Again” epitomises everything to do with that wartime spirit. When the 75th anniversary of VE Day happened just over a week ago the nation once again joined together to sing that iconic tune.

On the back of this anniversary Dame Vera Lynn’s Greatest Hits album was once again brought to prominence and with the resurgence in popularity charted. In fact, the album made it to number 39 in the charts. Nothing particularly unusual in that but what it has done is to make Dame Vera a record breaker. At the grand old age of 103 dame Vera is now the oldest person to ever have an album in the top 40. One hundred and three, still breaking records and still bringing the country together!
