    I think so often we think of how epic Echoes is, we tend to overlook this tune.

    one of my all time favorite floyd songs, but the soccer chanting at the end is bothersome to me because it reminds me of world war 2, just like everythng in england does.

    Is there any significance to the chanting at the end?

    From a few websites...
    Near the beginning and at the end of the song, a field recording of fans in Liverpool's Kop singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" is superimposed over the music. This Rodgers and Hammerstein song became the anthem of Liverpool F.C. after Gerry & the Pacemakers had a number-one hit with their recording. Roger Waters is in fact a staunch supporter of Arsenal F.C
