    Music major/band member/musician challenge

    Ok, so on the radio this morning GC said he likes ABBA and Neil Diamond. Well, we need someone who is musically inclined to redo the lyrics to "Forever in Blue Jeans" to "Forever a Cyclone".

    Then maybe at end of each football victory after the fight song and all the fans have calmed down a bit, the band could play that, then everyone would eventually know the lyrics.

    At first it sounded kind of corny, but the more I think about it, the more I like it. It could turn into something like "Piano Man" when you hear that at bars and what not.

    Turn it in to our own cult classic.

    Surely we have have talented lyricists out there. Maybe you can post the original words so we have something to start/play with. We have over 3,000 astute fans that can help rewrite this song. I know Amy and Angie can help out also. Maybe over a few beers Frioday night, words may rise to the top.

    Re: Music major/band member/musician challenge

    Here are the original lyrics. Maybe people can just throw out ideas. Don't worry about if you think they're good ideas or not.


    Money talks
    But it don't sing and dance
    And it don't walk
    And long as I can have you
    Here with me, I'd much rather be
    Forever in blue jeans

    Honey's sweet
    But it ain't nothin' next to baby's treat
    And if you pardon me
    I'd like to say
    We'll do okay
    Forever in blue jeans

    Maybe tonight
    Maybe tonight, by the fire
    All alone you and I
    Nothing around
    But the sound of my heart
    And your sighs

    Money talks
    But it can't sing and dance
    And it can't walk
    And long as I can have you
    Here with me, I'd much rather be
    Forever in blue jeans, babe

    And honey's sweet
    But it ain't nothin' next to baby's treat
    And if you pardon me I'd like to say
    We'll do okay
    Forever in blue jeans

    Maybe tonight
    Maybe tonight, by the fire
    All alone you and I
    Nothing around
    But the sound of my heart
    And your sighs

    Money talks
    But it can't sing and dance
    And it can't walk
    And long as I can have you
    Here with me
    I'd much rather be
    Forever in blue jeans

    And if you pardon me
    I'd like to say
    We'll do okay
    Forever in blue jeans, babe
    And long as I can have you
    Here with me I'd much rather be
    Forever in blue jeans, babe

    Re: Music major/band member/musician challenge

    The only thing I can think of right off hand is something like..

    Saturday
    we'll pack the jack just
    like we did for Mac

    blah blah blah
    Hear Gene Chizik say
    Forever a cyclone

    Or course I'm not sure if we really want to date the song by putting coaches and what not in there.

    but, this is just brainstorming.

    I don't mean to flame anyone, I am merely stating my opinion here

    ABBA!?!?! Niel Diamond!?!?!?

    The mental image of the band playing "Dancing Queen" for the football team, just ...well, it just.....wow, not that there is anything wrong with that, but...well.....yeah..............

    LOL no no no.. we wouldn't want to play it during a game or anything... just try and turn it into some what or our own "cult classic". Like after a victory after everyone is leaving the stadium or people singing it at a bar after tying a few on.

    Re: Music major/band member/musician challenge

    Chizik talks
    But he won’t sing and dance
    And he won’t walk
    And long as we get wins
    Here with Cy, I'd much rather be
    Forever a Cyclone

    Honey's sweet
    But it ain't nothin' next to Blythe’s quick feet
    And if you pardon me
    I'd like to say
    We'll do okay
    Forever a Cyclone

    Maybe tonight
    Maybe tonight, at the Jack
    All the ‘Clone fans and I
    Happiness abound
    Hear the sound of our cannon
    And the cheers

    Re: Music major/band member/musician challenge

    Are we looking at keeping some of the original words or complete new arrangement. Here is my take, only one verse though:

    Siren sounds
    Storm rolls in and you get pushed around
    You should be afraid
    Get out of the way
    We're here to stay
    Forever a Cyclone!

    Ill see what else I can pull out of my magic hat.
