"Bugle Call Rag" is a jazz standard written by Jack Pettis, Billy Meyers and Elmer Schoebel. It was first recorded by the New Orleans Rhythm Kings in 1922 as "Bugle Call Blues", although later renditions as well as the published sheet music and the song's copyright all used the title "Bugle Call Rag".[1] The song was popularized as a standard by swing era renditions by Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller.

The song appears in several Hollywood films, including Phil Spitalny and His Musical Queens (1934), The Big Broadcast of 1937, Orchestra Wives (1942), Stage Door Canteen (1943), The Benny Goodman Story (1956) and The Aviator (2004).[1]
