Sounds of the Olympics

Originally published at Andy Does Beijing. You can comment here or there.

We’ve heard a fun variety of music at the Olympic venues so far, just random background stuff and filler music, some cheerleading music, whatevers. It’s a lot of American music, the occasional Asian pop song, some really random remixes, and the Beijing Olympic theme, “Beijing huanying ni 北京欢迎你。“ Here’s some of the better selections:

  • Hey Delilah (hockey)
  • Linkin Park - Numb (baseball)
  • Earth, Wind, and Fire - September (basketball)
  • Song in Chinese to the tune of “Do your ears hang low” (hockey)
  • It’s Raining Men (basketball cheerleaders)
  • Eiffel 65 - Around the World, chinese cover (basketball)
  • Chumbawumba - Tubthumping (handball)
  • Avril Lavigne - Sk8er boi
  • Hey Mickey (cheerleaders)
  • Cotton-Eyed Joe
  • Foo Fighters - ? (Bird’s Nest - track and field)
  • Amelie soundtrack (Bird’s Nest - track and field)
  • Stone Temple Pilots - Feeling (?) (Bird’s Nest - track and field)
  • Limony Snicket soundtrack (Bird’s Nest - track and field)
  • Final Fantasy X2 soundtrack (baseball)
  • World of Warcraft soundtrack (baseball)
  • Foo Fighters - “You’re not the only one, not like the others” (water polo
  • You Are my Sunshine (boxing)
  • In-a-gadda-da-vida (water polo)
  • Lenny Kravitz - American Woman (water polo, theme for USA team)
  • Billie Jean (water polo)
  • Shania Twain - The Way You Love Me (Techno remix) (softball)
  • Sheryl Crow (?) -Sweet Child of Mine (softball)

Of course, we can’t forget the official theme of the Beijing Olympics: “Beijing Welcomes You (Beijing Huanying Ni 北京欢迎你).”
