    Default Stand Tunes - What do you want to hear

    My wish list - keep Poker Face, bring back Krypton Fanfare for the end of the games we are going to win, and for a new tune - the theme from the Jetsons. Can you just hear some kicking trumpets on that?

    I've always loved the EPSN theme we've done as well as Are You From Dixie?

    DEFINITELY Krypton! Play the Gladiator theme more, too. I'm mean, we're Troy so it only goes so well and sounds SO ominous and threatening. KEEP AWAY FROM THE THUG RAP SONGS THAT I HEAR BANDS DOING THESE DAYS AND THINK I MAY HAVE EVEN HEARD THE SOTS DO ONCE OR TWICE!!!!

    The problem with the Krypton Fanfare is the Concert C in the trumpets. It's the flattest note on the horn and causes a lot of problems. Not a great note for 38 trumpets all trying to play the same double whole note.

    Being a trumpet player, I'll grant you that. Now. Be good enough to do it! :)

    I miss:

    The Troy Shuffle- Postgame
    Amazing Grace- Postgame
    C Jam Blues (we only played it my freshman year)- Postgame
    Tuba Grooves (they were fun)

    I would like to hear stuff I didn't hear at halftime during the post game concert. Loosing the Shuffle and Amazing Grace at postgame were 2 traditions I hated to see go.

    I don't mind the rap stuff, but I would like to have more variety in the folder if possible.

    Keep the Stars and Stripes... that's Dr. Long's LARGEST contribution to the band world, getting that march made the national march.

    All that being said... this is my opinion and Dr. Walker is the band director and what he picks, I will support.

    Ditch the Rap crap before, during and after the game. There is a lot of music that covers all genres that doesn't carry the negativity Rap does. I don't think you could find 10 fans over the age of 50 who enjoy Rap but there are a lot of tunes out there most everyone can enjoy. The pregame music on the sound system is awful!!!

    "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba - the band used to play this a several years ago and I never really liked this song much until I heard the Sound play it. Great stands tune.
