     Longest Day March, The

    (Paul Anka)

     

    This was composed as the theme for the 3-hour movie of the same name made in 1962 where Paul Anka wrote the soundtrack and played the part of a US Rangers in amongst a veritable who's-who of stars of the day.  It has since been covered by many artists and orchestras and is now used by the Canadian Parachute Centre and Le Regiment de la Chaudiere in Canada as their authorised and official march.
