Song for the Surge

It’s clear from hearing Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ both in the arena and blaring in the victorious locker room that the Capitals have selected that song as their anthem. OFB wonders what song our readers think best matches the Caps’ accomplishments/challenges this spring. Each of us identified a single song we’d associate with the Caps’ surge and posed it as an option in the poll below. We’ve allowed readers to add their suggestion as well.
Groove out to these inspiring tracks or suggest one of your own:

  • Prime Mover – Rush
    From the point of ignition
    To the final drive
    The point of the journey is not to arrive

    Anything can happen…

  • Stayin’ Alive – Bee Gees
    Whether you’re a brother or whether you’re a mother,
    You’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
    Feel the city breakin’ and everybody shakin’,
    And we’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
  • The Rising – Bruce Springsteen
    Lost track of how far I’ve gone
    How far I’ve gone, how high I’ve climbed
    On my back’s a sixty pound stone
    On my shoulder a half mile line
    Come on up for the rising
    Com on up, lay your hands in mine
    Come on up for the rising
    Come on up for the rising tonight
  • A Beautiful Thing -Tragically Hip
    so we talked about things and where they went
    big remarkable events
    and how each day’s a new day
    and they get spent
    how you’d continue, artfully, like the breeze
    trying to do one true beautiful thing
