Dublin Core

Title

Ay Ziggy Zoomba

Description

Performed by BGSU Falcon Marching Band, conducted by Carol Hayward. Arranged by Lou Marini.
Recorded November 2008

BGSU's unofficial fight song is credited to Gilbert Fox, a WWII Army Air Corps Bombardier who served in Italy. In 1946, Fox brought back his interpretation based upon a Zulu war chant to the University. It is traditionally sung after every Falcon Football victory. It was incorporated into the motion picture "Paper Lion," the movie based upon George Plimpton's 1966 book of the same name, when Falcon Football Hall of Fame member Mike Weger, playing for the Detroit Lions, sang his own college victory chant in the film.
