ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Gloria, we consider a Blues have got a league’s number.
There’s been a lot to applaud with a St. Louis Blues lately. The Bluenote are on a seven-game winning strain and, given New Year’s Day, competition a 13-4-1 record.
But aside from interesting hockey, fans have also beheld a blast from a past blaring in a Blues locker room after wins.
That’s “Gloria” by Laura Branigan. Its deliberate by strain fans as her signature song. It stayed on a Billboard Hot 100 for 36 weeks and went platinum, with over a million copies of a singular sold.
But how did it finish adult in a St. Louis Blues locker room?
It turns out that a Eagles/Cowboys NFC Wild Card diversion in Philadelphia on Jan. 6 was a hint that illuminated a idea. Joel Edmundson was examination a diversion with Alex Steen, Robert Bortuzzo, Jaden Schwartz, and Robby Fabbri.
“We got together with some friends and watched a diversion with a garland of Philly guys who grew adult there,” Edmundson told stlouisblues.com. “They had a DJ in a bar and whenever there was a blurb break, they would holder a tunes and all these guys from Philly would get adult and start dancing around. They played this song Gloria a integrate of times, and this one man looked during a DJ and pronounced ‘keep playing Gloria!’, so they kept personification it. Everyone would get adult and start singing and dancing. We only sat behind and watched it happen. Right there we motionless we should play a strain after a wins. We won a subsequent game, we got a shutout, so we only kept on personification it.”
You might not have famous that “Gloria” transposed Dion’s “Runaround Sue” as a postgame feat locker room song.
“Most of a time, when we try to figure out a strain to play, it has something to do with a group or something that happened via a year,” Steen said. “We started with Runaround Sue, that is a happy song. It’s like a feeling we get after wins in a building now (with Runaround Sue playing). It was a same vibe with Gloria – it’s an aged propagandize strain and it puts a boys in a good mood.”
“It’s great,” Edmundson added. “Whenever we come behind in a sauce room (after a win), we’re yelling ‘play Gloria, play Gloria!” It creates us grin and have a good time. It’s working, so we’re going to keep it.”
