Thanks!! the intro is a total copy of Junkie doll, which I'm okay with.  love the slide solo at the end though.

You can sing the whole Junkie doll lyrics and everything fit... but with Donegan gone rythmic.

The best part is the wonderful version of you'll never walk alone. Very emotional.
You might get lucky, now and then

This is a cool song indeed. Same guitar riff as in Junkie Doll, as mentioned, but the whereas Junkie Doll is in my opinion very depressive (both musically and lyrically), this song has a much more positive outlook. I like that. Also like how the horns come in. As for the slide guitar, it is much better than the squeaky-clean sound on Tracker, but they must have put tons of compression on it, because the sounds sustains forever. Feels a bit unnatural. But overall a great song.

I like this one..

I am not a Liverpool and no bigger fan of any other PL club, I enjoy following the league... However whatever your team is, you can't deny that hearing YNWA at Anfield is magic. I like J. Klopp as well, he's brilliant with all his energy... So really enjoy the second half of this song when you hear the tones of YNWA from Knopfler  ;D

Yes Dortmund has it as well as a few other clubs in Europe. But you really dedicate it with the Reds :)

I like the idea that in times like these football fans across the continent are united by an old song like this.

No time right now, but after a dozen or so plays I love this one, wonderful stuff. I like everything I have heard bar Dancefloor and nobody does that....and GOYS leaves me a bit flat. But Trapper, One Song, Bacon, this one all very good. Nobody's child I'm not sure about at the moment. Good me a grower though.
