    Listening to fight songs on youtube today and I was surprised to find that almost everybody that made a list of their top fight songs had CU's in their top ones. I don't know who these people are, but they are different lists from different people.

    I've always felt that our fight song didn't get the recognition it deserves. It's a killer song, and we all know the words. AND WE ALL SING THE SONG. We don't just sit there and clap along like a bunch of mindless morons.

    How many of the top CFB schools sing the fight song? Michigan? Norte Dame? Texas? OU (hahahahah)?

    I like how everyone sings the fight song too and not just the student body.

    Here's a couple of fight song parodies I'll break out against UT and OU.

    Eyes of Texas are Upon You = "I've been working on the rail road all the live long day....
    Boomer Sooner = "Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition"

    I've not heard a parody of CU's song. Sure somebody butched the words. The one distinguishing features is that there is no rhyming going on. The words must have been created by a business or engineer major.:lol:

    In 1989 when a bunch of us went to Norman for the CU game, we would sing "Poly-ester, poly-ester, poly-ester, poly-ester".

    Here you go, pass it around:

    "Glory, Glory Colorado"

    Glory, Glory, Colorado
    Glory, Glory, Colorado
    Glory, Glory, Colorado
    Hurrah for the Silver and Gold!

    (Repeat)

    "Go Colorado"

    Away we go, Go Buffalo; We want a Colorado victory.
    Show them we're out to win this game,
    Come on, Colorado, push onto fame.
    Fight for the Silver, Fight for the Gold;
    Give a rousing cheer!
    Hey! Buffalo, we're gonna show,
    Go, Colorado, let's go!

    "Fight CU"

    Fight, CU, down the field.
    CU must win.
    Fight, fight for victory.
    CU knows no defeat.
    We'll roll up a mighty score.
    Never give in!
    Shoulder to shoulder we will
    Fight, fight, fight!

    Most of us know all the words. Unless you're counting the two "other" fight songs, but Glory Colorado is kind of like Boomer Sooner. It's somewhat repetitive.

    Oh no you did not just say that...

    The two are beyond compare. Glory isn't "the only song we know". If we had only 1 fight song and Glory was it I would understand but we have 3 fight songs and play them all relatively frequently.

    It's not their fight song but LSU's pre-game march is pretty cool....

    To think CU gave up that environment. Post the Fresno State band next, please. I want to see the purdy toads in Bulldog country like they have at LSU.

    Not sure Michigan's song needed to be parodied. For Christ's sake, the original has the words "****-ring heroes" in it already.
