So how fantastic were those Opening Ceremonies last night?
I’m still replaying some of the performances in my head after watching both the live stream and the primetime cut. There were some fantastic musical pieces, all orchestrated and assembled by Danny Boyle and his team of 15,000 volunteers.
One of my favorite songs was the one played whilst the final flame-bearers made their way to the incredible cool Olympic Torch. The song is called “Caliban’s Dream” and we discussed it a bit last night. For those still unaware, the vocalist featured is Alex Trimble, frontman of Two Door Cinema Club. He was asked by director Boyle himself to perform the song with the assistance of Only Men Aloud, Dockhead Choir, Elizabeth Roberts and percussion by Dame Evelyn Glennie.
You can listen to the song here and download it on iTunes along with the rest of the Opening Ceremony soundtrack.
