Wow! I went to youtube and typed in Under the Double Eagle Polka and also Under The Double Eagle March - two entirely different songs.

It is amazing how many of the bands played the wrong song under the title given.

There is a great Souza rendering of the march and Chet Atkins has a good one of the polka.

Are you talking about this one by Chet Akins? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2qcDlNxK5M

If so, it is actually the same song; he is just playing the chorus part.

Torch.....I'm sure you meant well, but that has to be the worst rendition I've ever heard of UTDD.

I'll never forget, I asked a friend once when we were both overseas "what do you miss most about the United States?" He thought for a second and I guessed he was about to say "American pizza." Instead he answered with "brass bands playing military marches in parades!"

Torch,
You are correct! They are the same songs. I just had a chance to really sit and listen to each
one - my bad.

I'll have to decide which of the two versions I want to play.

Here is the version of Double Eagle that I use; from a book that I own. I added a few markings to it, otherwise it's just a version from a book of marches ...

I hope the attachment comes thru OK :-)

Deane,
After watching a number of clips on Youtube, I will have to say you are far from wrong. It looks like it was a fashionable thing years ago for many well known artists and groups to play the excerpt from Under The Double Eagle. Because of the instrumentation and the style, it does sound like a totally different tune.

It was funny to read the comments for Chet Akins version; one person thought the Chet Akins version was a country tune and said, "This is what country music is meant to be not that current crap!" ´╗┐Another corrected him, "Country music was meant to be a 19th century Austrian march? :))´╗┐
Yet another said, "You guys are all wrong. It's Sousa. Brush up on your marches folks." Actually, all these years I thought it was a Sousa, too.

Anyway, arranger players can appreciate a well known tune played in a totally different style and instrumentation. I enjoyed all different versions. Myron Floren even had a Disco Polka rendition. What's that??? Well, one of the three links below.

"That's a Sousa March. L
