The "Cougar Fight Song" is the official fight song of the University of Houston (UH). It was written by Marion Ford with lyrics by Forest Fountain who were both UH students, and is typically performed by the Spirit of Houston.[1] The song was popularized by Ed Gerlach and his orchestra in the 1950s who was a music professor at the university. In 2002, Norm Maves, Jr. of The Oregonian named the song as the 7th best college fight song in America.[2]
