I am a sucker for lists. When I see a list of the top whatever, I usually read it and compare notes through the lens of my experience. Via CDR Salamander(http://armedandamphibious.wordpress.com/2011/12/28/that-playlist-thing/)

Dang, that is a lot of cadence. It must be PRT season. Pocket Monkey also likes the cadences. I suspect the chanting format stimulates his inner Chamorro. I saw some traditional stuff when I was on Guam. Yes, they chant. Much like our Native Americans.
As for the cadences, they are a blueprint. A good cadence caller can improvise a good cadence with a basic theme. For example, “Running through the desert” can turn into, “Running from my wife”.
