I LOVE THIS (and so do my cats right next to me.)
I can't wait for Winter Olympics now. I'm so glad this is on Pandora. :D

Man, this song gets you pumped up for the next Olympics 2 years in the future!
Williams is the MAN! Not that there are no other good composers, nor that he's the absolute best, but he is one of the greatest, for modern day or otherwise!
Me! I can't wait for Lolo Jones on hurdles, and the marathoners Ryan Hall, Desiree Davila, Shalane Flanagan and Kara Goucher. And of course the swimmers but I don't have any names in mind. I just love watching them all!
Anyone else looking forward to London yet? :0)
What the HECK oh my gosh this man wrote everything!! ! ! To think that all these musical motifs I've heard and loved my whole life could come from the same person. It's so neat that we have a living musical legend.
One of my favorite John Williams pieces. And you can tell it's not supposed to be a film score. Just goes to show how good this guy is.
To me, it is reminiscent of that composition heard so regularly at graduation ceremonies, "Pomp and Circumstance . "

As I listen to the Olympic fanfare and wonder what makes this work for me: it mixes themes of pomp and idealism, a pairing unique to the olympics?
