Full Version: Cand's Favourite Marches

This may sound a little bit weird, but whenever I sit down to write something for or work on my factbooks/wiki pages, I like to have some military marches or songs on in the background. Nothing particularly martial, mostly more melodic British marches. I think it's something about the lack of lyrics and soothing nature that helps me concentrate on the writing process. They're elegant enough to be pleasing to the ear, yet not so elaborate that they draw my attention away, and the consistent pacing helps calm me down. Some of these have made it into the Candanadian military marches factbook.

Here are a few of my go-tos in no particular order for all those curious. I may add or remove entries periodically as my tastes shift.
