From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio
Whenever the Olympic games roll around, a certain excitement fills the air. This song celebrates those games and the principles of Olympism - things like the joy of effort, the spirit of friendship, and fair play. These are good cross curricular lessons (and good life lessons), so you may want to discuss the lyrics with your students. The song also lists 15 sporting events being held during recent Winter Olympics. Do you and your students know what each one is? More good discussion fodder.
The song style is high energy rock with synths, guitars and drums driving the sound on the recording. We've also added stadium crowd noise and the sounds of winter sports to add to the excitement. (from Music K-8, Vol. 20, No. 3)
