Look Sharp/Be Sharp March
The Look Sharp/Be Sharp March is an instrumental of the traditional march genre. It was composed by Mahlon Merrick for the television show "Gellette Cavalcade of Sports". The television show made the song quite popular during it time, and it received radio airplay and was used in the repertoire of many high school and college bands of the day.
Punch-Out!! (ARC)Koji Kondo arranged two versions of the Look Sharp/Be Sharp March for Punch-Out!!. The first plays at the title screen, the second is unsed in the game, but found a place in Arm Wresting, a retooling of the cabinet.
Arm Wrestling (ARC)Koji Kondo arranged a version of the Look Sharp/Be Sharp March for when you successfully catch the money bag as your reward for defeating the strongest man in Arm Wrestling (ARC). The same version used in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! is also in the NSF file, but it seems to be unused.
