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.

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!)...

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
