OT: Hype Song suggestion

Submitted by UMfan21 on July 23rd, 2011 at 1:25 AM

Apologize in advance if this is too RAWK for some of you.  I happen to think that the best hype videos are rock songs heavy on drums, or rap with good beats.  The problem I see with rap is too many bad lyrics which detracts from the video.  I'm tired of movie quotes and "Better son/daughter". 

So anyway, I purchased the new 3 Doors Down album yesterday and I thought the title track was pretty good.  Lyrics are topical for UofM fans, and the drums would make for great synchnig with defensive hits and Denard running.

If anyone is thinking of a hype video I'd highly suggest this song. 


Youtube video is rather poor audio quality, but enough for you to get a feel:





Another day in some other place

could someone please remind me

where the hell we are?

Another night I feel it come to life

How could this go so far?

The life I love is the one I lead

It gets crazy but that's fine by me



'cause I don't see the day

when I run all night

But I've got to say, there's no other way

I'm having the time of my life


The words you sing bring back memories

of so many days that have gone

I look back and smile at those forgotten miles

and laugh at all that went wrong

what I am is what I want

and I'll be this way 'til I'm dead and gone




For me that's all I need

To Live the way I please




There's some things that I can't make right

and it's been so long Lord since I've been home

but I'm having the time of my life.

Seriously though the ideal highlight video for me wouldn't have any music, it'd just be game clips and announcer voiceovers, kind of like what WolverineHistorian does. If you're going to have to do music, at least put up some rap.
