Colonel Bogey March
Supposedly, the tune was inspired by a military man and golfer who whistled a characteristic two-note phrase (a descending minor third interval) instead of shouting "Fore!". It is this phrase that begins each line of the melody.
The sheet music was a million seller and the march had been recorded many times before it was used in the movie The Bridge on the River Kwai.
