Best New England Stadium Song: 'Your Love' vs. 'Sweet Caroline'?
How a '80s song from a British band became popular in New England is a total mystery, but fans go crazy for it at Gillette Stadium. With the first guitar riff, nearly 66,000 of the Patriot faithful belt the song out with the same desperation that lead singer Tony Lewis does on the track. What we get is a fun, if not slightly emotional, experience that is hard to top.
