Christian Shares The Anthem Melbourne Has Been Waiting For

Christian is pleased to present to you this song, written for Melbourne, by Melbourne!

When Melbourne got knocked down off the top spot by Vienna in the World's Most Liveable Cities list, he felt an injustice had been done. This was a man who had moved his entire family and dog her to the most liveable city in the world from England and Europe. the only thing that he could possibly think of that might be a reason - was that Vienna, had their very own 80s rock song (by Ultravox!).

After speaking with the Lord Mayor Sally Capp, Christian commissioned Jack to write Melbourne it's very own anthem. A refill of his creative cup and Jack definitely delivered, writing these awesome song lyrics, which make us all proud to be Melburnian.

Christian wanted a Melbourne school choir so he found a great one from Vocal Arts Studios.

Listeners to his show also co-wrote the song too. The great local singer Michael Mills from Toehider jumped onboard as did legendary sports commentator Hamish McLachlan.

The song, Sing It For Melbourne, is available for purchase from iTunes - click here to buy it! All profits raised are being donated to the Starlight Foundation, whose mission is to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

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
