A St. Louis radio station is going to play "Gloria." Over and over and over again.
Y98 kept its promise to play the Blues unofficial theme song for 24 consecutive hours after their 2-1, double-overtime win against the Dallas Stars in Game 7 of the Western Conference Second Round on Tuesday.
The Blues adopted Laura Branigan's 1982 hit song as a post-win anthem starting in January, and it's taken St. Louis by storm. The station's morning show "Courtney & Company" promised to play the song for a full day if the Blues defeated the Stars, and the marathon started shortly after Patrick Maroon's game-winning goal at 5:50 of the second overtime that lifted the Blues to a 4-3 win the best-of-7 series.
The Blues did their part to celebrate with "Gloria" after their dramatic victory. Defenseman Joel Edmundson requested the song on Twitter within minutes of leaving the ice at Enterprise Center, and the Blues Twitter account obliged.
Blues fans will get at least one more run of "Gloria" in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. St. Louis will play either the San Jose Sharks or Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference Final.
