Skip to 4:25 for Fallout 4's "Accentuate the Positive"
Personnel: Bing Crosby, Eugenie Baird (special guest), The Charioteers, John Scott Trotter (orchestra conductor), Ken Carpenter (announcer)
Fallout 4 uses an unusual choice for "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive" or "Accentuate the Positive".
Yes, Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters recorded their hit in 1944, but the song in Fallout 4 has Bing singing solo.
It also comes in at 1 minute and 8 seconds, too short for a commercial recording.
It comes from a "Here Come the Waves" medley. It includes: "There's a Fellow Waiting in Poughkeepsie", "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive", and "Let's Take the Long Way Home".
Bing had already sung "Accentuate the Positive" several times on the show to plug the film which came out in December.
But this version comes from the February 1 broadcast.
This episode unfortunately is of low quality with clicks and skipping present. Most OTR (Old Time Radio) sites have this version.
It is curious how Bethesda Softworks got their hands on a better quality version for Fallout 4.
