Does anyone know when the Olympic theme tune is being released ? according to NME it was to be made public in March and I can't find it anywhere. scratch

Wonder if NME have got their wires crossed, as it was the two re-issued albums out in March?

Wouldn't have thought the Beeb would want too much advance listening of the Olympic theme to save it getting old by the opening ceremeony.

Doesn't seem to be an awful lot out there on'tinternet about an early theme release, though a slightly obscure related clip did pop up:

According to Craig and Jupp on Twitter, you can hear about a minute of "First Steps" in this BBC advertisement:

Ermmmm.... OK, I don't like the clip at all... Sad an Animation??!! Really???

The song isn't bad but in connection with this clip I didn't get goosebumps... Why didn't they take real people, showing real emotions??
The first part reminds me of the Star trek Voyager score (Hahaha... *lol*) then it gets sporty and then the typical hynmal character.
Looking forward seeing it with live videos!

Love what I've heard so far but sadly missed the full outing. Is that what was in TamedLamia's video, which has now been taken off youtube?

The longest version online (which runs about 2:40 and has a prominent choir) is this one here. Also, it's in this Deadspin article.

I think so, it's gone now Sad
I hope there will be another source with the clip, that will be available in Germany, because what use is it if I want to see the VIDEO and not only the sound which I can download surely somewhere legal.
I like the video, just because it is an animation. It makes it more overall to show "phantasy sports men and women" and not some known faces. And I also like the slightly cartoonised style, the huge weightlifter, the fairylike floor gymnast girl ect. Smile

Im not sure if it would work but you could see if you could watch the one show from that day and skip to the end because they were saying it was on after that and before Eastenders so you might be able to see it there (although they have probably cut it out) Very Happy
