Popular Songs, 1914-1918

A by-product of the First World War was the great number of popular songs, so well-received in North America. The following list is a selection of some of the best-known popular songs written or recorded during that era. The list is not comprehensive. Some of these pieces were well-known before 1914 but have been included because they continued to be popular afterwards.

Selected recordings in Library and Archives Canada's collection of 78-rpm discs, chosen for their Canadian content, were digitally reproduced for this site with permission. Many of these songs are therefore available for listening via RealAudio. To find out more about the process used in preparing these recordings, refer to the Technical Notes provided.

The songs are grouped by year:
