Wonderland

Wonderland

Historically (and admittedly, it’s a short history), Wonderland has brought you spectacular footy highlights, moments meant to jolt your love of the game back into top gear before the weekend matches. Today’s Wonderland takes place pre-match.

Before every game, the supporters of Liverpool Football Club sing a rendition of the club’s theme song, an old Gerry and the Pacemakers number called, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. And never do they sing louder than before the local derby against Everton.

As the two teams face off at 7:30am tomorrow (on ESPN2, set your DVR), this seems an appropriate time to bring you one of the great sounds of sports.

    Although Bill Shankly’s love of the 1963 Gerry and the Pacemakers version is what led to its adoption by Liverpool, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is a Rodgers And Hammerstein song that originally comes from the 1945 musical “Carousel.” In the Pink Floyd song “Fearless” from their album “Meddle” (my second favorite Pink Floyd record), a recording of the Kop singing the song plays throughout. Pretty awesome, and I don’t even like Liverpool.
