You'll Never Walk Alone

In the U.S., "You'll Never Walk Alone" is a song probably best associated with Jerry Lewis and his telethon, but in the U.K. - it is a sports anthem best associated with the Liverpool and Celtic football clubs.

Today, we look at two clips - first, Gerry and The Pacemakers perform the song set to stirring images of Liverpool. (The recording was #1 in Britain for four weeks).

Next up, it's Gerry Marsden again - leading the crowd at Celtic Park in Glasgow. It seems both Liverpool and Celtic share strong ties with Ireland and a similar working-class ethos. It's pretty remarkable to watch the fans sing together as one, isn't it? Great stuff!
