When I was in school (grade & high school), I played the clarinet and I loved when we played patriotic music. I couldn't get enough of John Phillips Sousa music (okay, I was a nerd), and to this day, I still love his music because it reminds me of parades and and the soldiers who fought for our freedom.
My senior year in high school, I took (borrowed) a piece of music from band. It's been 30 years since I was in high school but I still have that piece of music and I know where it's at. The music is "The Thunderer" by John Phillips Sousa and it's still one of my favorite patriotic songs.Looking at it today, I can't believe that I had the song memorized, I don't have my clarinet anymore but I have still have this music.
