We have been stunned by so much during these tremendous games - the genius and delight of Mo Farah, Usain Bolt, discovering those wonderful athletes like Allyson Felix and Christine Ohuruogu; that triathlon (swimming, cycling and then running) with the determination of the Brownlee brothers and the Spanish Gomez; the successes of Jessica Ennis and Sir Chris Hoy; the terrific commentators like Clare Balding and Ian Thorpe; then we turn to the swimming and diving ... how they do all that - the training and determination ... good to see Tom Daley getting the medal which meant so much, comiserations to the others like Sascha Klein, and Matthew Mitcham .... let's play one of my favourite albums to recapture the mood: ARC OF A DIVER by Stevie Winwood. Here is one time you do not want A BIGGER SPLASH!
PS: I have just pre-ordered the 2-cd soundtrack of the closing music, with all those numbers .... out next week ! and I see that there is a documentary "Under African Skies" Paul Simon's journey, as narrated by Paul, to South Africa and the creation of the "Graceland" album - http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/under_african_skies
(which only seems to be Blu-Ray on Amazon).
Now its back to West End Girls" ... and the song of the summer: Paul Simon's "So Beautiful or So What". (more Simon at Music label).
