10-J, 10-M

Ten random things: January 21

Ten songs played by marching bands or drum and bugle corps in the Inaugural Parade:

  1. You're a Grand Old Flag (Adams Central High School Patriot Marching Band)
  2. Anchors Aweigh (U.S. Navy Band)
  3. America the Beautiful (Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps)
  4. Celebration (Florida A & M University Marching 100 Band)
  5. The Final Countdown (Manning High School Golden Pride Marching Band)
  6. Rocky Top (University of Tennessee Pride of the Southland Band)
  7. Old Man River (Petal High School Marching Band)
  8. The Stars and Stripes Forever (University of Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens Marching Band)
  9. Viva Las Vegas (Green Valley High School Marching Band)
  10. Simple Gifts (Trumbull High School Golden Eagle Marching Band)

I recorded C-SPAN's coverage of the Inauguration yesterday, and was disappointed to find that the recording ended only halfway through the Inaugural Parade. Boo! They had the whole parade archived on their website though, so on second thought make that a yay!
