* The first eight bars of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.
** The first 4 notes of Beethoven's 5th Symphony were appropriated by the Allies as a LeitMotif throughout the war. It matched the Morse code signal for "V", for Victory.
* Bagpipes, just... bagpipes.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZ7hYEJt2UY main march]]. The vocal version is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ff4ci4-tY_0 here]].
** The main theme is never played in its entirety until the closing credits; it's only hinted at. The first time is in the officer's club (?) where we first see Richard Burton. Someone is slowly picking it out on the piano.
