The 2012 London Olympic Games are ready to rock. The five official songs for the Summer games include: “Survival” by Muse, “Good Life” by Delphic, “Velodrome” by The Chemical Brothers, “Good Morning To The Night” by Elton John & Pnau, and “Scream” by Dizzee Rascal. In addition, a two thousand song library has been compiled with different themes for different sports including: energy, prime-time, extreme, heritage and world stage.
The launch of Rock The Games has also been announced, with surprise concerts taking place in various venues around the city. Currently the Scissor Sisters and Brighton rap-pop duo Rizzle Kicks are scheduled to perform.
Also keep an eye out for the closing ceremony album released on August 12th titled, A Symphony of British Music — Music for the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games (that album title almost rivals Fiona Apple’s). I am so pumped that the Spice Girls will be performing at the Olympic Games Closing Ceremony! Can I get hell yeah?
