London’s Official Olympics Song Is Terrific And Terrible And Really Something
London Olympics organizers have said they wanted to go a completely different direction than Beijing (and everyone ever), and yesterday’s release of this year’s Olympic theme song, “Survival” by Muse, confirms they’re men and women of their word. But really, organizers are a Steps line dance away from being in full fuck-all-y’all mode: they do not give one rat’s greypence about what the Olympics were, are, or will be. This year, it’s gonna be British, so contemporarily and creatively British that anyone who doesn’t like it can make like a tree and naff all the wankbats up Piccadilly.
(I have no idea what I’m saying. Sorry. Will try to drag RFH by to give us a proper education later.)
By the way, I’m on the record as loving the Olympics. If you do as well — or hate it, for that matter — you’re going to really enjoy us next month. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
