Olympic mixed tape

One or two golden nuggets mixed in here.



DJ Soap's olympic song is making the round of the blogosphere DJ Soap - Faster, Higher, Stronger (Olympic Anthem) No reason why it shouldn't be on the blog, too - maybe he can do a H,F,B version. It's pretty ridiculous (some strong language appears about a minute in).

Or a little KanYe West with Champion (Olympic Version).

The Foals from the UK with their song Olympic Airways.

Or this Moncton "mid fi" (huh?) band called The Olympic Symphonium

Scottish band Ballboy (what a name) with Olympic Cyclist

Twin cities The Olympic Hopefuls with Drain the sea

The best song is by this 1976 disco outfit The Olympic Runners

Griddle had a song for the 1984 Olympics that I wish I could have found to post. Same with another official songwriter for the 1984 Olympics: John Denver, who penned "Gold and Beyond".
