If you listen to the first line of the S1-4 theme, the last two notes are very quick. They are off the beat, on purpose. That's syncopation. In the S5 theme, those two beats seem longer, and have emphasis, because they are on the beat. It sounds boring and "marching band-ish" to me. Otherwise, the S5 theme makes me chair dance, mostly because of the heavy drum use.
School's out! Remember, behind every loose ball there is a running child.
