Secret Society Initiaition Song

Yep: that's right: this (assumedly) is the song sung when the Order of Angell initiates a new member. Complete with parts for backup singers.

 Order of Angell michigama michigauma


Is it just me or does this whole thing about the longest week of your life sound like hazing?

I'm having visions of them trying to make all of the letters of "Order" as they stand and sing along in a happy (confused) group.

Am I the only one who finds it odd that "wolf" is spelled "wolve"????

yeah, I thought the same thing as anonymous, but then once I googled it trying to figure out what this was, google asked "did you mean wolverine?" kind of questions.

klumpig: I like to also imaging them spending time everyday to practice this in preparation for must be a very moving ceremony.

I'm hoping that was a submission for a contest. More likely it was somebody hoping they could get in if they wrote a super rad theme song.

Unfortunately (or maybe hilariously...) there are pictures on Facebook of some "Order of Angell" members and behind them, it is quite clear that this YMCA travesty is written on cue cards behind them. Yes, cue cards.

Wow.. as far a honor societies go, this is a whole new take on the definition of "honor".

Think is how "skull and bones" got started?

I like to think wolve is pronounced "wolv-ee" in an even more endearing version of the song.

This is probably my favorite find ever. It's incredible. Literally, I find myself almost unable to give credence to the thought that this MIGHT be their real initiation song.

I can't be certain, but I think "Wolve Moudgil" is referring to the starter of K-Grams, and that they fucked up the spelling of "Matthaei" (Bot Gardens).

Uhh... isn't it difficult to sing a 5-letter word along with a 4-letter karaoke beat?

I thought that at first, too, Joel. But then I found that you can roll O and R together rather nicely.

no offense but this is not really news...

I agree with Anon, who's referring to Rishi Moudgil, founder of K-grams and vehement Michigan enthusiast.

Joel, no it's not. In the original "YMCA," they stretch the Y for two beats. Simply say O and R in that time. Those singing bears did it in a Pepsi commercial for the Super Bowl some years back.

Ha ha, ok. I guess if bears can do it then these guys maybe can.

this is the dumbest thing i've ever seen (and awesome that you found it)

their initiation is going on right now so that makes sense.

Not a member. But I think I know which member it was in the Fishbowl...

This is funny, but it's definitely not an initiation song. They have a semi-formal during their initiation week, and they make the incoming kids write and perform some kind of funny song routine. This would be the song they came up with this year.
