    Waltz ISU Fight Song

    Does anybody here know if there is a polka version of the fight song like the band played in the second half yesterday? I heard it a couple of times last year along with the Iowa State Roll Out the Barrel. I was wondering if possubly any band members would know if there was a version online.

    Re: Waltz ISU Fight Song

    Beer Barrel Polka was just Beer Barrel Polka until about 10 years ago, when a couple of pep band trumpet players figured out that ISU Fights could be matched up perfectly with the second half of BBP. It went from 1 trumpet playing to 3 to 5 to the whole section to where it is today.

    Waltz Fights has been around for a long time, but was only revived recently after many years of being shelved.

    I know BBP Fights hasn't been recorded, and Waltz Fights may have been recorded in the 80s.

    There have also been two different "William Tell" openings to Fights over the years, as well as a "mini" Fights that surfaced for about one or two seasons a few years back.

    Re: Waltz ISU Fight Song

    I don't think we've put Waltz Fights on a CD


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Re: Waltz ISU Fight Song

    Well, since that's the case, then whoever compiles the CD's for the band ought to put them both on there as I would definately buy one. Nothing like hearing those two songs on Saturday afternoon at Trice to start off an evening of drinking.
