I stopped after the mis-statement but if you mean it's place in LFC's recent history then you have a local point. Others have it as 'their' anthem too.

Just had to listen to my favourite clip of G&P - still has the power

Well done Bee..
This virus is global... It doesnít matter who is singing the bloody song.. Itís all about the song..


It seems you are damned if you do and damned if you donít.. >:(


Thanks for your comments Scrumpy, much appreciated. ;D

I don't give a damn who 'owns' the song, I have always associated it with Gerry and the Pacemakers and they are the ones I like to listen to singing it.

I might have a listen to Andre Rieu as I'd never heard of him until now
.


I prefer the You Tube Maistricke  version  where you can also see the spectacular crowd scenes,

Just watched it - it's OK but that is about as high as I would rate it. Clearly some members of the audience found it very emotive - possibly hitting personal trigger points, but what is the point of Mr. Rieu and his violin? There's no solo element in the arrangement - and I fail to see how there could be, in all honesty. He's just another violin, but I have always thought that the man was more show than go!
I'll stick with my preferred version.

Thanks for that GM I've never seen that gate.   I had a friend at Hillsborough who thankfully came home, but I also had acquaintances who didn't.  The song always brings tears to my eyes.

I agree.

When I said 'owned' it doesn't mean they legally own it, it means that they have made it their song by popular choice.

'Owned' is a modern parlance word when use in that context.

But getting back to Family Fortunes, I cant see too many of the 100 people not saying Gerry & the Pacemakers, when asked "who did the song You'll never Walk Alone?". ;D

I can't even remember which musical it originally came from - was it Carousel?

I think it was Carousel... I remember a woman singing it when the (hero) Gordon Macrae was killed.. As a kid I sat with mouth wide open in dismay..

It is Carousel. It's sung during the show and then reprised when Billy is on his way to heaven. Not a dry thigh in the house at this point..
