You hear at least one of them played in parades, at band concerts, and on radio and TV for weeks leading up to the fourth of July . . . they're the patriotic marches and anthems that give an emotional jolt to millions of people.

They are some of the most enduring and most popular songs of all time, yet the facts about their creation are unknown to most listeners.

In an article appearing on the Music Industry Newswire, Scott G (recording artist The G-Man, and owner of G-Man Music & Marketing), reveals some of the truths about these famous tunes.

Surprising facts about these well-known songs include:

* The melody to the U.S. national anthem is based on an English drinking song.

* A hit song of the Civil War was sung by both the Union and Confederate sides with different lyrics.

* One song almost replaced the "Star Spangled Banner" as the U.S. national anthem.

* How some famous patriotic themes became part of the soundtracks to popular movies, "Dr. Strangelove" and "Apocalypse Now."

* The same song was sung at the funerals of Winston Churchill, Robert Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan.

* One patriotic song took two decades to write.

The complete article is available at:

Scott G owns G-Man Music & Marketing, where he consults on advertising, marketing, and branding and creates ad campaigns in all media. As recording artist The G-Man on Delvian Records, his 6 albums are on iTunes. A voting member of NARAS (the Grammy organization) and a creative director of NARIP, he writes for MusicDish, the Advertising Industry Newswire, the Music Industry Newswire, and eNewsChannels.com.
