Center City tower blasting Phils' playoff anthem twice a day


It looks like Center City is going to be hosting an impromptu Phillies-themed dance party twice a day for the foreseeable future.

That's if a release from The Laurel Rittenhouse, a very tall luxury tower just off Rittenhouse Square, is to be taken at its word.

The building's developers sent out a release Wednesday ahead of NLCS Game 2 vs. the Padres outlining a plan to pump the Phillies' postseason anthem, Tiesto's remix of Calum Scott's "Dancing on My Own" cover, twice every day on outdoor speakers above the popular park.

Here's a clip showing what it'll sound like if you're walking through Rittenhouse headed northwest at 12:30 p.m. or 5:30 p.m., from the Laurel's Instagram page:

So the entire city is just full-on going insane for the Phillies at this point, huh? Love it.

Here's the statement from Southern Land Company, the building's developer:

"In support of the club’s postseason run, the @southernlandcompany team at The Laurel Rittenhouse Square is bringing the party to the corner of Rittenhouse Square for #RedOctober by broadcasting the Phillies’ new clubhouse anthem, Calum Scott’s “Dancing on My Own” (Tiësto Remix), from the tallest luxury residential tower in the city each day the Phillies are in the playoffs.

"Phillies fans can join the fun and show their pride every day throughout the playoffs at 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. at Rittenhouse Square, just across the street from The Laurel. Outdoor speakers will send the iconic tune reverberating throughout Rittenhouse Square from the soon-to-be completed luxury condominiums which are slated to welcome the first residents next month."

Probably a good thing that the building isn't open yet. As insane as Phillies fever is right now, it'd likely drive some residents insane. Not me, though. I think I've listened to the song roughly 1,000 times (Robyn's version, but still) in the last 10 days. Absolute banger every time.

The Phillies, of course, were famously filmed belting the lyrics out after knocking off the Cardinals in the Wild Card round on Oct. 9:

And then things snowballed from there.

Let's Go Phils.
