Can’t decide which of the official Olympic songs you like/hate the most? Well, don’t decide yet because Casiokids have (sort of) thrown their hat in the ring. To celebrate the games they are giving away their ‘Olympiske Leker’ track for free, along with this rather touchingly lucid note.
“Behind the commercials, the celebrity focus, logistical stress and economic issues there is something quite beautiful about the concept of the Olympic Games. If we really are so different, if we have to have those flags and borders, we might as well try to finish all the fighting with some rubber balls, racing around an oval lawn and see who can throw an iron ball attached to a chain the longest. So, to mark the opening of the Olympic Games in London we’ve decided to give away our Olympic anthem “Olympiske leker” for free together with a bonus version, Olympiske leker v.2.”
