“Dancing On My Own” by Calum Scott became the club anthem for the Philadelphia Phillies during the team’s magical run to the World Series in 2022. However, the team decided to leave the hit song in the past.

In an appearance on the “Take Off with John Clark” podcast, Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber revealed that the team is retiring “Dancing On My Own” as the club’s anthem. Instead, the team will be looking for a new song to replace it.

“It was a good race, but this is a new team. This is a new us,” said Schwarber. “Let’s find something new and it’ll catch on just as well. No offense. It’s a number two song. We’re looking for something better than number two.”

The Phillies clung to pop music throughout the postseason. After the victory over St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Wild Card series, players could even be seen chanting the lyrics to “Dancing On My Own” as they celebrated winning the series, which was their first postseason win since 2010.

“That one got us all the way to the World Series,” Phillies catcher JT Realmuto recently told earlier this month. “It’s an annual thing. New year, new crew. We’ve got a lot of new faces. New music. I don’t know who’s in charge of the songs this year. It definitely won’t be me, but somehow organically a song will come out.”

It was a song that captivated the Phillies and their fan base as they chased the team’s first World Series title since 2008. Considering they fell short to the Houston Astros in the World Series, perhaps it’s best that the team moves a different way. direction for this year’s club anthem.
