Start Wearing Purple - Our "Jumparound"

We briefly talked about it during the season, but it's summer time and we have time to care about trivial (?) matters like this.  Play it whenever.  Could be a third down thing, could be after the third quarter.  Whenever really, but it's a great song for K-State, especially the chorus, and especially the "LADADADADA!"

Imagine the students screaming

"Start wearing purple wearing purple!
Start wearing purple for me now!
All your sanity, and wits - they will all vanish.  I promise.
It's just a matter of time."

So cool.

It's this kind of foreign, scary, upbeat gypsy song.  Seems perfect. I think I'm going to go try to set up a meeting with somebody in the athletic department next week and pitch the idea. 

LET'S GET BEHIND THIS, WILDCAT FANS!  START WEARING PURPLE!

Let's make it ours.  In 5 years, when people talk about BSFS, they'll say stuff like "Oh man, that 'Start Wearing Purple' song?  So crazy. They go nuts."

BUT, I definitely support trying to be more like Wisconsin.

They do this constantly during games, and it's clearly heard throughout the stadium...no one even bats an eye, young or old.

I love the passion, Dlew, but given your track record with pitching your fantastic ideas (see multiple lazy river variations), do you think it would be wise that we nominate someone else from the board to do the pitching?

Just spitballing here, I'm not saying I would do any better. Just really want to see this happen.

We wouldn't have to play the whole song during the game/between corners, they could start it here (http://www.youtube.com/watchv=SkkIwO_X4i4&feature=player_detailpage#t=65s) and end it immediately after the chorus or play it on a loop. 

We shouldn't introduce it during the game either.  Maybe play it like, just prior to when the band takes the field so everyone can hear the weird song and get the "start wearing purple" part and think to themselves, oh that's kind of cool.  Do that for a couple weeks, then BAM, OSU has a 3rd down and 15 on their own 15 yardline on their first drive of the game, the students are in a frenzy, then all of a sudden you hear "SO YEAH HA!" and they lose their minds.

would be so great.

Well I'm in my car now.  It's at the 65 second mark.  Just before the first chorus.

I've pitched this idea before.  Will try again. 

Basically everyone sings the Wade in the Water song from the beginning of this video when the Cats come out on to the field.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WskyXvn17J0


I think this would be simple to get going and sound good at the same time.

This thread doesn't contain the kind of enthusiasm for which I hoped.

you don't fist pump until the end.  you sway slowly staring at the field/ground for most of the build up.  you can slowly raise your head in miniscule increments as the music builds if you like.
