John Philip Sousa:

I Love a Parade!

Before television, radio, and the movies, it used to be a very big deal when the circus came to town. Circus parades and performances were always accompanied by marches called "screamers" -- a name that probably came from the fact that the music screams for attention.

Fucik: Thunder and Blazes
Wagner: Under the Double Eagle
King: Barnum and Bailey's Favorite
Bagley: National Emblem
Alford: Colonel Bogey
Jessel: Parade of the Wooden Soldiers
