The University of Michigan lost the football game to Alabama, but thankfully the Michigan band save the day.
During halftime of the Citrus bowl on New Year’s Day, the band played two famous song from the Disney classic Mary Poppins.
Michigan only trailed one point at halftime when their marching band took the field to play two favorites from Mary Poppins.
The first song was famously sung by Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews during the 1964 Disney musical. Written by the Sherman Brothers, it has become one of the most sung Disney songs of all-time.

A Spoonful of Sugar
“A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way”
The second song the Michigan band played was “A Spoonful of Sugar.” Fans cheered as the bandmembers formed the shape of umbrellas which is an iconic Mary Poppins symbol.
