There are a couple of other clips of LSU floating around where you can hear it better.  LSU's version is one of my favorites as well because the arangement, and tempo is very similar to what was played when I was in school when I got hooked on it.  The evolution the song has taken over the years kinda looses it's feel to me, but that is us adding our "flavor"  CAU is guilty . . . when did it become an EnVogue song? 

I remember playing AA&M with their17-20 shinty silver Tubas swaying side to side in the sun before a note came out . . .and then every 3-4 measures blurted a note.  You knew what was coming ,and the crowd went crazy.

All in all, it's still a great song, that will get a stadium/gym going crazy.   I can can count at least over 20 years strong.   

YouTube is great.  I have used it as "research" to try to expose my oldest to some of the stuff he might see at a game . . . but he still ain't ready.  HAHA

I had to explain to my nephew that the bands did not make up the song NECK and that it is actually called Talking Out The Side of Your Neck and that its by Cameo. He just looked at me like a deer in headlights when I played my ole Cameo greatest hits cd.  lol

The movie "Drumline" did a lot to expose HBCU band culture to folks who had not attended a game.

We've heard stories of high school kids wanting to adopt the styles displayed after seeing the movie. nod

The tempo that LSU plays "Neck" is actually closer to the real song. I like it.
