Music Monday: Our Olympic Games Closing Ceremony Picks
The Olympic Games have come and gone in two exhilarating and sometimes frustrating weeks.
With last night’s closing ceremony, the organizers pulled out all the stops in featuring artists and performers such as the Spice Girls, George Michael, One Direction, and the Who.
But it was not without flaws, particularly for viewers in the United States. NBC interrupted the tape-delayed primetime broadcast for an hour to debut the new show, “Animal Practice.” They also cut some significant parts of the performance, including Ray Davies of the Kinks performing “Waterloo Sunset” and Muse performing “Survival,” the official song of the Olympics.
In spirit of the closing ceremony, we decided to put together a playlist of the songs we would have liked to see performed or featured. You could think of it as a Mashable staff personal trek through our favorite songs in British popular music.
Music Monday is a weekly post that allows us to share our love of music with you. So every Monday we publish a Spotify playlist crafted around a specific theme. Last week we put together a playlist of our first MP3s, and we invited you to share yours with us.
What do you think of our picks? Do you think we left any out? Send us a song that you’d pick to be in the London Olympics closing ceremony, and we will add a few to our list.
