My goal was to find the best Ohio videos on YouTube, and one member has gathered several of the best songs making my job easier. If you are trying to get a feel for Ohio and Ohio fans I’d recommend the first – “What’s Up Ohio” with its tribute to Ohio fans of all kinds, even mooning coeds. The video, as it ends, rolls right into the second which is a parody called “We Live in Ohio” – also worth watching, although there are some inside jokes or comments that may mean little to non-natives.
Party Like a Buckeye, is repetitive rap for diehard OSU football fans and the next two videos are about their rivalry with Michigan. If you keep going down the list you will find Bruce Springsteen’s “Youngstown.” One of my favorites on the list is “The Low Anthem – To Ohio,” (click on this link!!). Also on the list is “Banks of the Ohio” a rather depressing folk song that has been done by every artist you can think of from Johnny Cash to Olivia Newton John. Why it is so popular escapes me.
“What’s Up Ohio” was posted by Wellpplrstupid. The list of Ohio Songs was compiled by Chet Ridenour. Thanks Chet! Anyway, I hope you enjoy getting into the Ohio groove.
