You’ll Never Walk Alone
The song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is a song written in 1945, by Rogers and Hammerstein, for the musical Carousel . Many well known artists made recordings of the song, including Elvis Presley . In the years before the film “Rock Around the Clock” was released the cities pubs rang out to quaint old English songs from World War II Also, Liverpool F.C. were struggling in Division II and Bill Shankly was yet to make his mark on the Liverpool Football Club.
Bill Haley and the film “Rock Around the Clock” hit England like a hurricane in 1955 and it was all change from that time onwards. Almost overnight, Liverpool and London had many singers, groups and bands wishing to take “Rock Around the Clock” to its next level. LFC, then, bounced back into Division I, after 8 long years ( http://www.liverpoolfc.com/history/reds-promoted-from-division-two) The new sound of the Mersey Beat began to be established and “Rock Around the Clock” was taken to its next level. One of those groups of singers from Liverpool was “Gerry and the Pacemakers” who released their recording of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” in 1963. The song immediately became the anthem of Liverpool Football Club which was now firmly under the leadership of Bill Shankly.
