Stolen fight song?

Post by gosox22 » Tue Mar 08, 2005 8:45 pm

Did anyone watch the ORU/Oakland game on ESPN2? The Oral Roberts fight song IS our fight song! So did they still it from us or did we steal it from them? If you heard it, it is the EXACT same fight song. Even the Go.. Go U.. Go U Mass.. GO UMASS part has been stolen.. They replace UMass with Eagles. What the hell is that. I know its a random topic, but how do you share a fight song? Stupid.

Formal University songs are shared as well - UNC and Cornell share alma maters, same music, different words. And, the Cornell drinking song "Davey" was co-opted to become "Give my Regards to Broadway" in the 1920's. I guess the Big Red had lousy intellectual property attorneys back in the day.

I guess "Go Eagles" is better for them than "Go Oral" . :lol: Also, I wonder if they have IV's "Hey, you suck" refrain?

Vanderbilt has nearly the same alma mater as Cornell as well. The tune is exact, but the words are slightly different - no mention of smell!

IV's "You suck" refrain is the reason I attend games.

...Well, one of the reasons, anyway.

CAL & UCLA have the same fight song.

There should be a band named The Oral Roberts.

Wow, what a shot!

It really is hard to believe that with a wit like that... that you were not put into elected office. Thank you for once again proving my point.

I would enjoy this more if it was not so easy.
