What Music Should Your Team Enter the Field To?

Orson Swindle asks..."What teams would emerge to what songs if they had to forego their fight songs?" He gets thing started with two posts. One here and one here. My list is below. Feel free to add more.

"I Fought the Law and the Law Won" (Bobby Fuller)
-- Sure, Sweet Home Alabama is almost their fight song, but this is more reflective of their reality from '95-2004. Although, if someone did a remake of George Jones' legendary "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and reworked the lyrics to be about Bear Bryant instead of the guy's ex-wife. It would be even better.

"Yellow Rose of Texas" (Johnny Lee?)
-- All those guys ever think about is Texas anyway. Might as well just embrace it.

"Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places" (Johnny Lee)
-- First off, this is the theme song to the movie Urban Cowboy. But dig deeper. Spurrier is every Gator fan's true love. Hiring Meyer when a perfectly healthy and willing Head Ball Coach was available was the wrong move. Jeremy Foley simply went looking for love in all the wrong places.

"Brother Gotta Rap - Live" (James Brown/Larry Munson)
-- I'd like to see the Dawgs come out to one of my mixes. It could be this one or any of them. I really wouldn't care. (BTW - the link points to an 8 megabyte music file)

North Carolina
"Come Away with Me" (Norah Jones)
-- The perfect tune for a nice quiet evening with the wine and cheese Tar Heel crowd.

Oklahoma State
"Rhinestone Cowboy" (Glen Campbell)
-- Not a *real* cowboy, but a rhinestone cowboy. Because real cowboys would never wear orange or put up with sissy 2-8 or whatever records.

South Carolina
"The Chicken Dance"
-- Doodle, doodle, doodle, doo. Doodle, doodle, doodle doo. Clap, clap, clap, clap.

"I'm Fat" (Weird Al)
-- Your butt is wide, well Phil's is too. Just watch your mouth or he'll sit on you. The word is out, better treat him right. 'Cause he's the king of cellulite. Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat, all right.

"Brickhouse" (Commodores)
-- How can you not go with a Commodores reference here? As I've said before, Lionel Richie should be playing their halftime shows.

Ha!!! An excellent choice for any program that'd willingly bring Richie Brooksie back for another year-plus.

Tennessee - In the Jailhouse Now, Webb Pierce

South Carolina - What Is & What Should Never Be, Led Zeppelin

Vandy - The (drinking) Bone song, just reminds me of Nashville and going to Georiga/Vandy games

Kentucky - Cole Miner's Daughter, Loretta Lynn

Florida - Flirtin' with Disaster or Gator Country, Molly Hatchet

Georgia - Oh Atlanta, Little Feet

Auburn - Cat Scratch Fever, Ted Nugent

Alabama - Welcome Back, Mase

Ole Miss - Girls, Girls, Girls, Motley Crue (just reminds of Oxford in general)

Miss State - Drinkin Muddy Water, North Mississippi All Stars

LSU - Louisiana Saturday Night, Mel McDaniel

Arkansas - Okie from Muskogee, Merle Haggard

Given the importance and the inevitable intensity of this game between Georgia and Auburn, I would think that Drowning Pool's song "Bodies" would be appropriate entrance music for the Dawgs.

If nothing else, it'd get me fired up!
