i was watching the maryland-duke basketball game and right before a commercial break the maryland band played the zelda theme. thats awesome. can we get the michigan band to play that?
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
It was done in 2004 as part of a medley.
It's in track 14 of "The Blue Album," which is curiously not available on the MMB website.
It may not be online, but it's available at M-Den and Moe's.
While you're at it, buy "The Maize Album" as well.
of the White Album.
I'd definitely be more willing to watch a halftime show if it were something interesting like this, and not A Night at the Opera....
I have been to 3 MD football games and 4 MD basketball games, and the UMD band plays all kinds of great songs, from Zelda to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (naturally) to the Maryland Victory Song, which is actually a pretty good fight song. They are definitely one of the more entertaining bands to listen to musically (though I can't put them above Michigan of course).
