Personally I’d tie my hair back.

Back to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games for this one. If you’ve never seen “Isles of Wonder”, it’s worth checking out. I would recommend the DVD because you can watch it without commentary, which is by far the best way. But if you don’t want to shell out, the Olympic Broadcasting Service’s version is on YouTube and their commentary is less annoying than the BBC’s.

Here’s the studio version of Underworld’ s epic piece that was played during the “Pandemonium” section. It’s 17 minutes and 15 seconds long, so you get your money’s worth, especially as you’re getting this for free…

  1. The stuff of legend. Anyone who doesn’t download this is a fool (by which I mean, I have, and thanks!). By the way, been meaning to say for a while, glad to see you’re back after your brief hiatus. Our little corner of the blogosphere is a brighter place with you contributing.

  2. First time I’ve seen Evelyn Glennie posted in these parts. Very welcome it is too.
