Mitch Miller & His Orchestra – Col. Bogey’s March (From Bridge on The River Kwai) (Original)

“Col. Bogey’s March” from the 1957 Academy Award winning film “Bridge On The River Kwai” starring, among others, Alec Guiness as Col. Bogey was derived from a song originally composed by Kenneth Alford in 1914. The music was used during WW II with derisive lyrics added to it aimed at Adolph Hitler. Film composer Malcolm Arnold added a counter-melody to it and this was used for the march in the film itself. Mitch Miller, then head of the music department for Columbia Records, recorded the song with his orchestra and it went into the Top 20 on the pop charts early in 1958.

The irish village sign Gaoth saile for Gweesalia , with a further give way sign in Irish – Geill sli – and the High Chaparral Bar in the background. The SLOW THROUGH VILLAGE sign however is duplicated in English. A fine male equivalent of the High Nelly roadster leans against the wall of the lounge. The High Chaparral was a TV western series, and the bar is probably so named because American Country music is quite popular in Ireland.
Listen to the High Chaparral theme tune as you gaze on….
