“Gurines March” is a very well-known song in Norway. Lalla Carlsen made great success performing it in the Chat Noir Revue “Det er servert” ("It’s Served") in 1932 and in the movie "Opp med hodet" the same year. The song is the same melody that was used for the ”The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo”.
Norwegian singer/banjo player Kari Svendsen is one of many performers who have made recordings of the tune from then on to this day. ”Gurines March” is great for parade, where it certainly will bring a smile or two among the audience.
