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.

Yellow Rose of Texas by Mitch Miller 1955 (with images of Mitch)

Mitch Miller competed with the early years of Rock and Roll and did fairly properly, thank you. This tune was on the charts for 19 weeks and even reached quantity 1 when “Rock Around the Clock” and “Ain’t That a Shame” were also competing for air time. Wonderful that the sheet music for this song featured Johnny Desmond on the cover. Talk about missing the boat!
