Highland Belles Fan Seeks Performance DVD

A Highland Belles fan wrote in to ask why she can’t buy DVDs of the drill team’s performances:

Why haven’t the Belles (the best drill team ever) not made videos of their performances public? Are they concerned with other teams copying their choreography? As a fan of the Belles since before I attended the high school (and now into college), and as a dance enthusiast, I would love to see more of the Belle performances. Some for nostalgic reasons (Dr. Jones!) and others because they’re just plain awesome (Zombie!). I would even pay for a dvd of their performances. What about the rest of us? (Plus selling dvds would boost funding for the team – and who doesn’t want more money?!)

Sure enough, I see nothing about DVDs on the team’s website. But there are clips of the Highland Belles on YouTube. The best thing about the one I’ve embedded above is the offscreen commentary from the guy who starts out as a skeptic but ends up a fan by the end of the routine.

    Who can tell me the name of the piece of music that punctuates each Belles routine? And how long has it been part of the show?

    That music has been around as long as the Belles! Don’t know the name though.

    Paying for the rights to any music they use in their routines would nix any potential DVD fundraising abilities.

    According to Cathy Wheat: the music was recorded in 1983 by the SMU band and it is an old time big band sound probably from the 40s and the name is ‘Lover’

    If you listen really carefully in the original (Audrey Hepburn) Sabrina, you can hear “Lover” being played during the party scene and it is definitely the Belles’ “theme song”.

    They have them all on a private website, I’ve heard that because of stalkers and other past events they don’t make the website public and ya I’m sure the music is a factor
