"The Happy Wanderer" was a German pop song by Friedrich-Wilhelm Möller that topped the UK singles charts in 1954.
It's popularity was such that it won the coveted Road March title for Trinidad Carnival 1955, stirring up protests over a
"foreign" tune being chosen for Road march.
This was the only non calypso tune ever to win Road March, and could actually be considered a "Bomb" tune.
Here, from the album "Road Marches through the Years(1937 - 2004) is the old Silvertones Steel Orchestra of Port of Spain and the 1955 Road March, "The Happy Wanderer"(Valdarie Valdarah).
