You'll Never Walk Alone

A few days after my birthday this year, my dad crossed a HUGE item off his bucket list and flew a couple friends and me to Liverpool to watch the UEFA Champions League Semifinals second leg at Anfield. You know, that miraculous game where Liverpool scored 4 goals and advanced on aggregate?!


Ironically, I'm a Barça fan, but I will never forget the electricity of the Liverpool fan base at Anfield on such a historic evening. Absolutely extraordinary. I've never felt anything like it before.


Since listening to Pink Floyd's song Fearless from Meddle, I've always had a curious and awed sense of what it must be like to be in a stadium watching football in the UK. It only occurred to me when I first heard "You Will Never Walk Alone" sung by 50k+ supporters that it's the exact same song that plays at the end of Fearless, the same song that piqued my interest in footy.
