I always associated this song with Champaign because it came out while I was in school there and the Illinois Central railroad, of course, runs right through Champaign.

I too think of Champaign whenever I hear that song. Bittersweet since now I live far, far away. :)

Listen with caution, wistful expats.
It's sweet enough to put you out of your misery.

This is a 1938 recording of Illinois Loyalty with some older lyrics.

rbachhuber, what year is that "Pride of the Illini" from? The musicianship is AWESOME but we never did anything near that when I was in MI (2007-2010).

I really have no idea. I just happened upon this video on YouTube and there is no source information attached to it.

When I found out a couple of weeks ago that Bob Dylan had co-written not one, but two songs called "Champaign, Illinois," I was astonished that I hadn't heard of either one. How could the man many people consider to be the greatest storyteller of the 20th century reference our town twice without making more than a blip on the local radar? Shouldn't one of them be some sort of official Champaign anthem?

I know this is a bit off-topic, but any meaningful music collection has to include Paul Simon's rendition of "The Boxer" on the first Saturday Night Live after the attacks of September 11:

I vividly remember watching this with tears streaming down my face. We were all Americans, plain and simple, as we tried to regain our balance as a nation in those dark days. God bless the United States of America, now and forever.

I don't recall ever seeing that before. Thanks.
