The Number 1 Hit Song on July 24, 1943

This is kind of spooky but I researched and found that the song “Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer, ” was the number 1 hit song on July 24, 1943, the same day Daisy Mae was coming in on a wing and a prayer. This song is sung by the original group, the Song Spinners who made it famous.  If you listen closely you will understand why the song fits the story of the Last Flight of the Daisy Mae.

There is also another version sung by Bing Crosby and that is the one I remember best.

Bing also had recorded a song about the 7th Army Air Corp but I could  not find it on the Internet. Our heroes were in the 42nd Squadron 11th Bomb Group 7th Army Air Corp.
