Pepidemiology

And yet another one from EDSBS.com, "Pepidemiology".  Apparently it's the study of school pep music.

Outstanding.

I think a lot of college football tunes I recognize when I hear them but don't necessarily associate them right away with certain teams as I've heard them so often blended into those terrific 18-hour Saturdays flipping channels and getting more than my share of school band music.  We do love the music though, and look forward to Orson's second installment in this series.

For our money, there are no greater fight songs than the holy trinity produced by Michigan, Notre Dame, and USC.  We can sing on command the lyrics to all three, in fact.  After that, the real argument begins.

Fight songs are part of the pageantry and tradition aspect of college football that separates it from all other sports and helps it burn such a big place in our heart.

Glad you liked it. There's more coming next week, this time with the good stuff like cheers, humorous songs bands play...I'll admit that "In Heaven There Is No Beer" by the Iowa Band will make an appearance. We care a little more than most about this since both Stranko and I are old college band geeks, and paid just a little too much attention to this stuff in our youth.

I could tell right away you were band geeks/music guys, reading that. Glad you have that appreciation and can create something like that.
