Admittedly, it will probably take a few years before it has achieved the status of “You’ll never walk alone”. Nevertheless, the new unofficial HSV anthem “We are the HSV” from the Hamburg rock band “Abschlach!” a successful ode to the traditional Volkspark club.
The accompanying video is also a nostalgic rendezvous for former club greats, mixed with a few representatives of Hamburg celebrities and normal fans like you and me. From young to old, big or small, male or female – everyone is there.
Musically, the opus is on the stadium rock level to be expected for such occasions (how could it be otherwise!), With a simple basic melody, lyrically non-overwhelming verses and a catchy chorus that makes you roar along (or hum, depending Character of each individual).
For me as a fan, of course, it’s nice to see that the almost three and a half minute video is introduced by the biggest HSV player of all time: Us Uwe.
In the following 200 seconds, legends and greats like Horst Hrubesch, Mehdi Mahdavikia (who even tries his hand at being a drummer!) Or Collin Benjamin appear from the black-white-blue faction, while the local celebrities are made up of people like the former Tagesschau anchor Woman Dagmar Berghoff, Jo Brauner (the former stadium spokesman), Wimbledon winner Michael Stich, TV presenter Jörg Pilawa, actor Patrick Bach and celebrity chef Steffen Henssler will be represented.
Even the two cult Indian taxi drivers Lovely and Monty, who are now just as much a part of Hamburg’s local color as the water carrier Hans Hummel or the Zitronenjette, are not missing.
The euphoric reactions of the fans were accordingly not long in coming.
But what am I writing about something that you have to hear (and see)? Just click in yourself and listen and see it for yourself. Have lots of fun with it!
