Hogan's Heroes - Theme Music

Theme Music

The theme music for Hogan's Heroes was composed by Jerry Fielding, although some musicologists have pointed out the strong similarity between the theme song and the Horstwessellied. The title of the theme music is "March" or "Hogan's Heroes March". There are lyrics to the title music. While they were never sung in the show, they were performed on an album titled "Hogan's Heroes Sing The Best of World War II". The drums were performed by Bob Crane, who was an accomplished drummer.

Famous quotes containing the words theme and/or music:

    The theme of my autobiography could only be repetition.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    For do but note a wild and wanton herd
    Or race of youthful and unhandled colts
    Fetching mad bounds, bellowing and neighing loud,
    Which is the hot condition of their blood;
    If they but hear perchance a trumpet sound,
    Or any air of music touch their ears,
    You shall perceive them make a mutual stand,
    Their savage eyes turned to a modest gaze
    By the sweet power of music.
    William Shake{peare (1564–1616)
