Posts Tagged ‘London Opening Ceremony’

I watched the full Opening Ceremony for this years Olympics and within those 4 ½ hours, amazing music was shared. From classics, to MIA, music was heard throughout the world and it was all from that country. It makes me wonder what our Opening Ceremony would be now if we based it around music. Bad thoughts come to my mind and hopefully we could at least pull the amazing artists together to form something similar to London’s opener.

Since I loved most of the music shared at the ceremony, I thought I’d share it with everyone else. Here is a list of the motivating, yet brilliant songs played.
