Virginia Tech Hokies


This song has a great message to it, as everything Usher is doing is about reflection, and instead of being upset about things that have happened or living on regrets, he just talks about taking everything in his life and accepting it and continuing to move on.

If you have had a good life, isn’t that all you can ask for?

Well, the Virginia Tech Hokies understand the same thing. Frank Beamer may appear to be running his course as a head coach, but for almost 30 years, he has been a model of consistency for this program and has kept it relevant, even knocking off the eventual national champion Ohio State Buckeyes in what was a down year last year.

So this song, in Beamer’s honor, should be Virginia Tech’s fight song. The band can play it easy, as the saxophones will initially do the part that Usher sings with the low brass and french horns playing the beat.

The Trumpets come in and assist with the melody when the chorus hits, and they carry it over from there. It would probably be a bit more difficult of a song to play, but it could still work. And it would be a perfect fit.
