Name Those Tunes

12 Aug Name Those Tunes

OK, maybe you won’t make the cut on “The Voice” like UofL alum Olivia Henken. But you can still show your UofL pride by singing along with the classic “Fight! UofL” or the more frequently used “All Hail UofL!” Granted, neither of these tunes rate any Top 40 radio play, but when they break out at UofL games and other university functions they still get Cards fans excited. Both are fairly short and easy to memorize, so take a few minutes to learn them—and the next time you hear them played, don’t be shy. Belt it out at the top of your lungs. You probably won’t sound any worse than the guy next to you.

Be sure to practice along with these songs and the alma mater, written by Jimmy Powell and John Young, with some music.

All Hail UofL!

by Alan Greener

All hail to thee our UofL

As we stand up for her fame.

All hail to thee our UofL

As we fight to win this game.

Sing praises for a victory,

We wish our heroes well.

All hail the Cardinal Spirit.

All hail our UofL!

All hail!

All hail!

All hail!

(toss up the “L” sign here, too)

You can practice along with these songs at uofl.me/uofltunes and the alma mater, written by Jimmy Powell and John Young at uofl.me/our-alma-mater

Fight UofL

by R.B. Griffith

Fight now for victory and show them

How we sure will win this game

Fight on you Card’nals and prove to them

That we deserve our fame.

Rah, Rah, Rah!

Roll up the score now and beat the foe

So we can give a yell

With a FIGHT! give them all you’ve got

For we are with you UofL.

After the song, a drum roll signifies that it’s time to stand and holler for your favorite team. The roll starts it, and the band and cheerleaders lead the crowd in the song’s closing cheer, spelling out Cards and then rallying together to end the fight song right. Be sure to throw up an “L” at the end.
