Someone has managed to take most of the commentary out of the 1997 grand final audio, highlighting the 1997 version of the club song:



Not perfect, but that seems to be the closest we've gotten.

What do you mean "closest we've got"?
You say that like you have doubt it was Mighty Adelaide Crows.
I can guarantee it 100% that that was what it used to be.

What I mean is closest we have to a clear recording (without all the broadcast/crowd sound) of the 'mighty' version of the song used at that time. I agree, you can clearly hear 'mighty' in that recording. I just wish we had a good copy that isn't taken from a broadcast. Props to that person for cleaning up the audio though.

Pretty sure the original original was done by the SA Police Band. Bill Sanders was talking about its creation on the Hall of Fame podcast. They played a snippet of it, we were definitely Mighty but Camry as well. "We're the Pride of South Australia, we're the mighty Camry Crows."

The fact they had that to play on the podcast leads me to believe that surely they have the other ones laying around somewhere.

If true, why they're keeping the grand final version under lock and key is beyond me.

Here’s that 1994 SA Police Band demo version that featured on the Bill Sanders podcast



The original intro music piece on that ‘94 version & the run out on to the ground Grand Final version was an absolute banger, no idea why it was removed/changed. The post game ‘97 Grand Final is a different recorded version that contains the 1994 lyrics of “the Mighty Camry Crows” in the first verse not “Mighty Adelaide Crows”, that opening verse seems to have a bit of Mandela effect about it, it got changed to “Known as the Adelaide Crows” from the original lyrics of “the Mighty Camry Crows” on The Fable Singers version when the AFL updated some teams songs & put them under their own copyright around 1998/99, there does not seem to actually be an official recorded version that had “We’re the Mighty Adelaide Crows” as the first verse used at Crows games.

You can even hear the confusion here in the 1997 Pre-Grand Final entertainment when they sing the Crows song at the 13:00 minute mark, they play the awesome original intro music but half of the choir seem to have had “Mighty Camry Crows” on the lyrics sheet while the other had “Mighty Adelaide Crows”

I wonder how much Toyota paid to have us include Camry in the club song
