Name This Tune!

Do you know this tune? One of the long answers in the NY Sun crossword today was "Colonel Bogey", clued as "March name". The puzzle theme was golf, and the other long answers contained "par", "eagle", "birdie", and "albatross" (three under par). Though I realize now that I knew the tune, I associated it with the song from The Bridge on the River Kwai. Had to go to Wikipedia to get the whole interesting story.

I also had to look this one up. I couldn't imagine how "Colonel Bogey" could have anything to do with music or marching! Also, I've recently discovered the NYTimes Sudokus and am enjoying those.

So you mean I was playing "Hitler has only got one ball" the entire time I was marching in high school?!?
