A Few Olympics Theme Songs As Weird As London's Muse Track

2. Christopher Cross, "A Chance for Heaven" If you put "Los Angeles," "1984," "summer nightz," and the font from the WCW logo into the computer from War Games, it will spontaneously generate this song, and with it a reasonably accurate clone of the Christopher Cross from Yacht Rock.

Before I die I'd like to spend four minutes inside a Pontiac Fiero listening to this on cassingle, ideally while driving down a coast drenched in indeterminately sourced neon lights.

3. Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado, "Bang the Drum" Sometimes, stereotypes are stereotypes because they are true. Canada's Olympics theme song featured Nelly Furtado and Bryan Adams, and socialized health care, and just a huge thing of poutine.

Honorable mention: Tonis Magi, "Olimpiada" This song actually killed Leonid Brezhnev.
