Blouses over the Shirts in a blowout.

Danny means "traditional" in style. Prince wrote this.

"Purple and Gold" lyrics:

The veil of the sky draws open
the roar of the chariots touch down
we are the ones who have now come again
and walk upon water like solid ground
as we approach the throne we won't bow down
this time we won't be denied
raise every voice and let it be known
in the name of the purple and gold

We come in the name of the purple and gold
all of the odds are in our favor
no prediction too bold
we are the truth if the truth can be told
long reign the purple and gold

The eyes say ready for battle
no need for sword in hand
we are all amped up like a rock and roll band
ready to celebrate every score
ready to fight the elegant war
ready to hear the crowd roar

That's what we came for
and so much more
in the name of the purple and gold

Our spirits may be tired
our bodies may be worn
but since this day is our destiny
our history - that's why we must be
forever strong as the wind that blows the Vikings' horn
in the name of the purple and gold

Very much in the traditional fight song mode, though a lot of elements of gospel singing in there.

That said, I pretty much hate it and it stirs no fanatic loyalty in me at all.

It's no Super Bowl shuffle.

I love when the words "best" and "worst" become synonymous.

Those lyrics would make a perfect John Facenda narration.

It sounds like something that was cut from Les Misérables.
