Thanks to Demonland I haven't suffered alone either.

This is being distributed . I hope the faithful like the idea . On the 16th of May 2021 the Bell will Toll for Melbourne Football Club ( MFC ) supporters to sing You Will Never Walk Alone . The s

We could always park this conversation until next year so we can sing We Are The Champions followed by Simply The Best.

I digress, but why haven’t we adopted this as our pre-match anthem? 90k at the G whistling as one would be spine tingly-dingly for sure!

Very funny Colin and apt for the last 50 years not the future . Perhaps our second song . Saw a post saying they only sing one song at a game . Grand Old Flag if we win . I also sing it before a game and love to follow with the national anthem at a blockbuster . Singing is good for you . I have a terrible singing voice .

Didn't read the start of the thread so no doubt i've missed the point but what's wrong with Grand Old Flag. It's a superb theme song imho. Can''t wait to belt it out when we finally secure that drought breaking flag.

Just so long as our pre match song isn’t ‘Self Abuser’.

A recent survey on Demonland revealed that MFC supporters want ANOTHER song to sing at home games during the warm up . There were 4 main contenders .

1. Raw Hide - good for the old Demon team .

2.. Lean On Me - good for the old Demons .

3. Always Look On the Bright Side Of Life - good for good whistlers .

The stand out choice was " You Will Never Walk Alone " . Soccer supporters had trouble at first with this choice . After hearing it was from a Hemmerstein / Rogers musical they accepted that saying it was a Liverpool's song is like saying I Dreamed A Dream is Susan Boyles song .

A group of supporters are going to sing the song near the Punt Rd goals during the warm up .The song is dedicated to the MFC and Mental Health .

Please donate to Movember and the Danny Frawley Centre .       

https://au.movember.com/spud

All spectators are invited to sing for a good cause . Wait for 1,2,3 to start .

When you are part of the MFC you will never walk alone !

I can't think of anything worse than a prematch song, other than using the new LED lights like strobe lights after a goal, or the bombers air raid siren....

It's a great cause but quite frankly I think Port's use of the INXS song is a bit pathetic and yes I have been there and seen it live.  You'll Never Walk Alone is owned by Liverpool FC no matter what you say about its R&H origins and it just feels all wrong to me to try to appropriate it.  Sorry but I'm not a buyer.

What "survey"?  I think most of us aren't even vaguely interested in the concept.

This thread is very strange. Similar to the video put up on the Club Website of LJ and Trent Rivers stealing Alan Richardson’s Jaguar.

I agree with your post.

Nobody told me there would be days like this.

These Strange days indeed. How peculiar. NOBODY TOLD ME

we have one.  hells bells.  

 I'm rolling thunder, pouring rain
I'm coming on like a hurricane
My lightning's flashing across the sky
You're only young, but you're gonna die
I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives
Nobody's putting up a fight
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell
I'm gonna get ya, Satan get ya

 

The mighty Reds put the Gerry & The Pacemakers song to bed decades ago and it's their's to walk alone.  Done and dusted.

If there was ever a song for the mighty Demons a la that gawd awful rubbish from Port pre-Match then Hells Bells is it.

I pushed for this years ago but on reflection this should only be dragged out and celebrated when we win a Premiership Cup as part of the post match celebrations.  And only by the real Acca Dacca if they're still going at that point....or a band with Angus in it at the very least!

After that maybe as a pre-match thingy but there's NO need to sing the entire song as mooted by the OP...

All that's needed is a chant at the start similar to the crowd here at River Plate...then joining in with the "Hells Bells" at each chorus.  Easy-peasy fellow minions.

The Demons and Hell's Bells are meant for each other (but not till we win the bloody cup!)...

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
