Athletics records official “Fight Song”
In the fall of 2008, Binghamton University Pep Band Director Mo Taylor had a goal to compose an official fight song for Binghamton University. He was entering his third year as the leader of the band (which is referred to as the Screamin’ Green).
Since he became the director, Taylor had grown the Screamin’ Green in both numbers and routines. But unlike the other pep bands in the America East, Binghamton lacked a fight song.
That was about to change.
“It took me about 30 minutes one night to write it,” Taylor said. “I love Binghamton and this song was going to be my tribute to the university.”
Fast forward to March 2, 2013. The Screamin’ Green and the Binghamton Wind Ensemble are gathered in the Anderson Center on Campus. Their goal is to make an official recording of the Binghamton fight song. That recording will become a permanent part of the University’s history and become a staple in bookstores and during presentations.
