Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

by Bing Crosby

Video & Audio

"Brother, Can You Spare A Dime" (1932)

Just the song with a slideshow of Great Depression photos

George Michael: "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime"

In case you have a preference for, uh, this sort of thing, we hereby offer you a different, more mustachioed version of the now timeless classic.

"The Great Depression: 1929-1933"

This YouTube video was created by a 9th-grade teacher for her class. We wish they'd included a soundtrack, but it is otherwise a useful introduction to Great Depression issues.

Alison Moorer sings "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime" for the History Channel

We're not exactly sure what the historical value of the new video is, but Moorer gives a nice performance.
