Songs That Embody Michigan Football (Besides Hail to the Victors)

Submitted by Santa Clause on April 5th, 2016 at 11:00 PM

I was hoping that I could get some help from the very knowledgeable MGO Board with a little problem I have. A friend/co-worker of mine and I are trying to find songs that embody what UM football is all about, but we have gotten stuck and are struggling to think of more. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Go Blue!

The Yellow and Blue is, of course, our alma mater. Varsity is a classic Michigan football song.

other Michigan songs not specific to football include Go Blue; Tis of Michigan We Sing; I Want To Go Back To Michigan; The Hymn; The University; and Memories of Michigan.

sang all these and more in glee club back in the day.

Yellow and Blue, Varsity and even though it's not truly Michigan, Can't Turn You Loose.  Add in the Victors and I can listen to that on repeat all day long

but it's "the Victors."  : )

But yeah, Temptation and Hawaiian War Chant are awesome.  My daughter grew up with those songs and now it's a struggle to find the original CD anywhere--so I gave her our only copy with those--which I bought at Moe's in the 80s.  

I imagine everyone in her dorm is saying "what the hell is that?"

I guess you get it, but I was gently kidding you for including "Hail to" in the title.  As we all know, it's simply "the Victors."

That said, I'm still angry about not getting that radio controlled P-51 when I was 9.  I asked you very, very nicely.  Can you please do something about that?  I bet those are pretty badass now.

Sorry I didn't get you that P-51. I was probably worrying about running out of gas on the way to your house, and had to go to the nearest gas station to refill. Thus in the process forgetting about your present. Sorry :(

I have a soft spot for the Better Daughter/Son song that was in a couple fan made highlight videos back in the bad old days.  That was actually kind of a cool time to be a Michigan fan because you knew that everyone still rocking the Block M was true Blue and there was a lot of optimism going around.
