If you know me it is a fact that I am a HUGE Elbow fan. As such when it was announced that the band would compose the theme for the 2012 Olympic I jumped for joy and told everyone.
Over the past few months counting down to the Olympics has been fun and now the time has come for the world to enjoy 6 minutes of Elbow, orchestrated, choir, composed gold. So to wet your appetite for what I assume will play during the worldwide broadcast of tonights Olympic Opening Ceremony here is the only 2 minute and 39 second clip I could find of what might be one of the greatest moments of my eardrums life.
If you want a visual check out the BBC advert for The Olympics that took some smart goggling on my part.
