The Perfect Version of the Texas Tech Fight Song Does Exist
I'm a sucker for the classics. Give me the Goin' Band from Raiderland playing 'Fight Raiders Fight' and I'm a happy man. Especially because it's played after touchdowns.
It's a Pavlovian response: I hear the first few notes, and my mouth starts to water.
I thought this marching band version was the mountain top. A few weeks ago, we got the rock version. It was great, but not better than the original; covers so rarely are. I had stopped looking for a better one, until this version found me.
I can't put my finger on what's so good about it. I'm not a big Nintendo guy. I never whistled an ocarina of time or rescued Princess Peach, but this 8-bit sound juxtaposed with an upbeat fight song really slaps.
IT'S A BANGER, as the kids say these days.
