Here Come The Hawks: Blackhawks Revive Old Song For Stanley Cup
During the CBC broadcast of the Chicago Blackhawks decisive Game 6 victory over the Vancouver Canucks, Hockey Night in Canada commentator Don Cherry talked about how the Blackhawks have revived their old theme song "Here Come the Hawks." The song is a breezy piece of brassy 60s pop that was written by J. Swayzee and recorded by Dick Marx Orchestra and Choir.
The song has been played at Blackhawks games for years. This season, the song was accompanied by clips on the scoreboard of legendary Hawks players. Earlier in the season, the Blackhawks produced a new version with current players singing the song.
Now that the team is heading to NHL's Western Conference Finals, thanks to young stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, the team is undergoing a massive renaissance and Here Come the Hawks has also come back in style.
Here are some of the Here Come the Hawks lyrics
ere Come the Hawks, the mighty Blackhawks
Take the attack, Yeah, and we'll back you Blackhawks
You're flyin' high now, so let's wrap it up
Let's go you Hawks, move off
Now all look out, Here Come the Hawks,
Here they come movin', weavin', flyin' high and throwin' spray,
Blades flashin' sticks crashin' tryin' for the play,
And the Blackhawks, take control,
There's a shot, AND A GOAL!
While it's hard not to like "Here Come the Hawks," it still can't compare to the greatest hockey fight song ever: The Hartford Whalers "Brass Bonanza."
