From the Video Vault: Lights of Cincinnati

Scott Walker’s “Lights of Cincinnati” would make for some stirring entrance music for the Bearcats in fall 2020

From the video vault today, I offer up “Lights of Cincinnati” by Scott Walker (the musician, not the politician). A song that sounds like the Righteous Brothers doing an impersonation of Bryan Ferry doing an impersonation of Gary Puckett.

I propose that the Bearcats’ world class marching band add this to the repertoire for 2020. Either that, or the AV guys in the Athletic Department could incorporate this song into UC Football’s 2020 entrance video.

Thanks for your support of Down the Drive. We’re all in this together.
