Today we are going to talk about a very special song - You’ll Never Walk Alone.
The song is a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel.
Gerry and the Pacemakers were a British group, formed in 1956.
They sang Mersey beat, pop, and rock and roll and they were the first act to reach number one in the UK Singles Chart.
Among their most famous songs we can count How Do You Do It, I Like It and You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Their version of the free You’ll Never Walk Alone piano sheet music was released in October 1963 and was published through EMI Studios.
The song has a length of 2:40 minutes and is considered a baroque pop music genre song.
With the composition of Richard Rodgers, the free You’ll Never Walk Alone piano sheets were written by Oscar Hammerstein II and produced by George Martin.
The band’s version was the most successful cover and peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and the top of the charts in Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand.
The original story of You’ll Never Walk Alone comes from the second act of the musical Carousel.
The cousin of the protagonist – Nettie Fowler, sings the song for her cousin to encourage her after losing her husband.
The husband fell on his knife and died, after failing a robbery attempt.
The sad story which inspired the song is actually resolved through the song’s message, that she will never be alone, even if now her husband is gone.
Because it is an interesting song, over the years it has been covered by many other artists, among which we can name Marcus Mumford version from 2020 or Michael Ball & Captain Tom Moore version in 2020 also.
Josh Groban, Lana Del Rey, Trisha Yearwood also performed incredible versions of You’ll Never Walk Alone.
