Where Are the Songs of Yesteryear?

By Roger M. Williams ’56

In memory that truly serves, my years at Amherst are swaddled in song. That doesn’t surprise me, even though I belonged to no musical group, played no instrument, did not even minor in music and didn’t welcome the advent of rock ’n’ roll.

Sing Along

“Every time we score a goal, it’s the law that we have to sing ‘Lord Jeff,’” Glee Club President Alex Speir ’11 told the crowd assembled in the library of South on Thursday evening. In cooperation with the RCs, Speir and other members of the club arranged gatherings over the past two weeks at various dorms to teach their fellow students, especially first-years, several of Amherst’s classic college songs, just in time for Homecoming.
