Music: “Shout” by Otis Day and the Knights
In the most iconic frat film ever made as well as the one that began National Lampoon’s legend, the “Shout” scene from the toga party is probably the most memorable in the film. Performed by Otis Day and the Knights, the song and the film have become heavily associated with one another. It’s a seamless incorporation of a popular song into a movie that feels neither hackneyed nor, like so many instances in which bands are crowbarred into films, bolted on.Vodpod videos no longer available.
