- Music written by
- Stanislav Binički
- Composition date
- Cyrillic spelling: Марш на Дрину. Composed to commemorate the Battle of Cer, in which Serbia defeated Austro-Hungary (1914), the tune, (mis)taken for a partisan song, was also very popular in the post-WW II Yugoslavia and even played at Ivo Andrić's Nobel Prize award cermony (1961). Swedish artist and publisher Felix Stahl subsequently aquired the publishing rights and promoted it leading to recordings by quite some artists. With the eponymous 1963 movie (performed by an orchestra directed by Vasilije Mokranjac, who also composed the rest of the score), it got known outside of Europe, too. From 1992 to 2004, the song even served as Serbia's national anthem.
