Olympians

Fuck Buttons 🇬🇧

14th October 2009

The second in a trio of songs by bands who couldn't resist getting a bit sweary in their names, this is a powerful, uplifting, instrumental that fitted in perfectly when used in the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

The ceremony used a remix that gave more punch to the percussion, and more gloss overall. It's the version I prefer (but then it's the first one I heard - although I'd heard of FB, I hadn't actually knowingly heard their records until London 2012).
