Sing it for Melbourne is #1 on iTunes

Tuesday 04 September, 2018

He might be one of Melbourne’s newest residents, but GOLD 104.3’s Christian O’Connell loves the city he now calls home, so when he heard Melbourne was knocked down off the top spot by Vienna in the World's Most Liveable Cities list, he wasn’t going to stand for it.
 
After contemplating it for a while, the only thing that Christian could possibly think Vienna had over Melbourne was their very own 80's rock song by Ultravox.
 
After speaking with the Lord Mayor Sally Capp, Christian commissioned Jack Post, with the help of listeners, to write Melbourne its very own anthem.
 
Today the song reached #1 on the iTunes rock chart.
 
Sing It For Melbourne features vocals from Melbourne school choir at Vocal Arts Studios, and local singer Michael Mills from Toehider jumped on board as did legendary sports commentator Hamish McLachlan to create a song that truly celebrates all that makes Melbourne great.
 
The song is available for purchase from iTunes and Spotify with all profits raised are being donated to the Starlight Foundation, whose mission is to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families.


 

Lyrics for Sing It For Melbourne are below in full.
 
SING IT FOR MELBOURNE
Making friends, the Paris end,
I’ll meet you at Flinders St Station
 
The tram cars, the street art
I threw up at Luna park
 
The state library, the NGV
Drinking coffee on Brunswick st
 
At Fitzroy Gardens, walk through the trees
To watch the footy at the MCG
 
As the weather gets better
We will barbecue together
Arm and arm we sway and sing her name
 
Everybody sing it for Melbourne, Melbourne
Everybody sing it for Melbourne, Melbourne
 
I’m a vulture, for laneway culture,
Sporting culture, multiculturalism
Melbourne Museum, Crown Palladium,
And the various sporting stadiums
 
As the weather gets better
We will congregate together
Arm and arm we sway and sing her name
 
Everybody sing it for Melbourne, Melbourne
Everybody sing it for Melbourne, Melbourne
 
We are Melbourne, we are strong
We are up there at Number One
We will kick, kick 'em in the ass if we want
We keep going til we’re done
 
(Back Up Singers/choir):
We’re just having fun
We’re having fun
In Melbourne
 
Everybody sing it for Melbourne, Melbourne
Everybody sing it for Melbourne, Melbourne
