Pink Floyd - Vera: The meaning behind it?
    #2644202 - 05/06/04 04:38 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

What is the meaning of this song? I can't seem to fully grasp any sort of significance or definition of even the title. Anyone help me out here?

I think it's about a popular little ditty during the WWII era.  The song itself ".....we will meet again some sunny day....." was all bouncy and happy.  It was sung by a flapper woman named Vera Lynn.  I'm not entirely sure about this though.  I think Pink is wallowing in nostalgia or just being ironic about how optimistic people were right before a massive devastating war.  Doesn't the song come shortly before the big fierce negative part of The Wall begins?

"Vera became the most popular British singer during the war,
hosting a BBC radio program, Sincerely Yours.
Her morale-building ballads were extremely popular with servicemen.
She appeared in an armed forces stage revue and toured Burma in 1944.
She also made three wartime films.
"We'll meet again"1942, Rhythm Serenade (1943) and One Exciting Night (1944)."
