Pulling for the Blues to win it all.  Blue collar, hard working team.

Made the playoffs 42 times in their history. I think it’s time.

They definitely deserved to win but WTF is with that song ' "Gloria" by Laura Branigan. WORST CELEBRATION SONG EVER.

LEAVE LAURA BRANIGAN ALONE ;~;

 

 

I'm convinced Binnington is a synth who hasn't mastered human emotion yet

From their website:

 

So what's the story behind the new victory song, which was nominated for a Grammy, went platinum and spent 36 weeks on the Billboard Top 100 chart in 1982?

It all started with Alexander Steen, Joel Edmundson, Robert Bortuzzo, Jaden Schwartz and Robby Fabbri watching the Eagles/Cowboys NFC Wild Card game in Philadelphia back on Jan. 6.

"We got together with some friends and watched the game with a bunch of Philly guys who grew up there," Edmundson told stlouisblues.com. "They had a DJ in the bar and whenever there was a commercial break, they would crank the tunes and all these guys from Philly would get up and start dancing around. They played this song Gloria a couple of times, and this one guy looked at the DJ and said 'keep playing Gloria!', so they kept playing it. Everyone would get up and start singing and dancing. We just sat back and watched it happen. Right there we decided we should play the song after our wins. We won the next game, we got a shutout, so we just kept on playing it."

Until then, the Blues' postgame victory locker room song was Dion's Runaround Suebecause of its fun, energetic and happy vibe - the same vibe the players feel now with Gloria.

"Most of the time, when you try to figure out a song to play, it has something to do with the team or something that happened throughout the year," Steen said. "We started with Runaround Sue, which is a happy song. It's like the feeling you get after wins in our building now (with Runaround Sue playing). It was the same vibe with Gloria - it's an old school song and it puts the boys in a good mood."

"It's great," Edmundson added. "Whenever we come back in the dressing room (after a win), we're yelling 'play Gloria, play Gloria!" It makes us smile and have a good time. It's working, so we're going to keep it."

I golfed yesterday with someone named Gloria, couldn't get the darn song out of my head for the entire 18 holes, then I come home to find it playing during a hockey game.  It will probably take me a week to get it out of my head.  Or, I go find a video clip of Baby Shark, that ought to do it.

Bunch of dudes rocking out to Laura Brannigan - nothing wrong with that :emot-parrot:- makes as much sense as the Leafs and their Hall and Oates. Maybe if they win the cup they can "rock out" to "What a feeling" by Irene Cara :frantic:
