When Napoleon's troops invaded Portugal, the royal family fled to Brazil and brought musicians along, reports Atlas Obscura. This "sowed the seeds of military bands," explains music historian Katherine Brucher. These days, Brazil's state-sponsored bands play pop music and seem to love Phil Collin's hit "Against All Odds." "If you're a band with a proficient saxophone soloist, it's a big way to feature them," Brucher says. "It's one of those songs -- the lyrics are pretty simple, it's really universal, and even if you didn't speak English, you still could sing along."
