Get Started Now

Start memorizing the University of Louisville fight song, get the words down by Saturday, Sept. 5th There will be a quiz. No excuses accepted.

This is the older fight song, of course. When you’ve got it down, get to work on my favorite, All Hail U of L!

    Given the current state of UofL football perhaps readers would best be served from a couple of other songs from your era. ‘Show me the way to go home’ and ‘We are poor lambs who’ve lost our way’.

    Nice try, Joe, but those songs were from an era long before mine. I think my grandfather may have enjoyed that kind of melancholy. How about the Moody Blues and “A Question of Balance.”

    Last year they made a point of playing Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” at every home game. Lots of pertinant stuff there.
    I used to rule the world
    Seas would rise when I gave the word
    Now in the morning I sleep alone
    Sweep the streets I used to own

    One minute I held the key
    Next the walls were closed on me
    And I discovered that my castles stand
    Upon pillars of sand pillars of sand

    I was thinking more along the line of Eric Clapton’s “Crossroads” or the legendary Eric Burton’s “We gotta get(Krags)out of this place”

    No inference meant on the age issue. How was seeing Buddy Holly in his prime? LOLOL

    Witness history in the making with Buddy Holly. There would be no rock and roll without him.

      Why does the song “Peggy Sue” keep running through my brain?
