Sounds of Vancouver 2010 - Closing Ceremony


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I bought the album today from Amazon.co.uk - My link

I know some people aren't so keen on the 'Oooh oh oh Vancouver' song (called 'Strong & Free' on the album), but I can't get enough of it! B)

No 'Hallelujah' I'm afraid, but Bublé is on there. Shame the Russian anthem's not on it though! :( One interesting thing to note is that the versions of the songs on the CD seem to be quite a bit less bilingual than the versions heard in the ceremony... last minute changes?

Here's the track listing:

1. Closing Ceremony Fanfare - The 2010 Vancouver Olympic Orchestra - 0:26

2. Strong & Free - The Cast of Closing Ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games/The Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra - 2:38

3. O Canada (With Glowing Hearts) - Inward Eye/The Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra - 2:18

4. Olympic Fanfare And Theme - Massed Orchestras Of The 2010 Vancouver Olympic Wintergames - 4:17

5. Entrance Of The Athletes Of The 2010 Olympic Winter Games - Massed Orchestras Of The 2010 Vancouver Olympic Wintergames - 3:22

6. Let's Have A Party - Eva Avila/Nikki Yanofsky/Derek Miller - 3:17

7. Greek National Anthem - Ariana Chris/The Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra - 1:58

8. Olympic Anthem - Ben Heppner/The Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra - 3:24

9. Long May You Run - Neil Young - 3:57

10. The Maple Leaf Forever - Michael Bublé - 3:05

11. Made In Canada - The Vancouver 2010 Swing Orchestra/La Bottine Souriante - 7:19

12. Burn It To The Ground - Nickelback - 3:29

13. Girlfriend (Radio Edit) - Avril Lavigne - 3:36

14. Emmeme-moi - Marie Mai - 3:25

15. Cha-Ching - Hedley - 3:29

16. Your Love Is A Lie - Simple Plan - 3:41

17. Wunderkind - Alanis Morissette - 5:16

18. Eye Know Something - K-Os - 3:40

19. Un peu plus haut, un peu plus loin - Garou - 5:24

I hope there's a special edition without tracks 12 to 16 in the making. Because I would never spend a dime on Nickelback XD Still, cover art is awesome! There's a beaver, maple leaves and french! =D

I take it HMV has it since they had the Opening Ceremonies album and the Canadian Hockey Anthems album. I'll swing by there today and take a look.

I picked up the album at HMV for $14.99.

Blockbuster also has all three albums there too:

Opening Ceremonies

Canada's Hockey Anthems

Closing Ceremonies

I also noticed on Amazon, there is a deluxe set that includes both the Opening and Closing ceremonies albums. I didn't see the track listing, but I'm sure it's probably the same as the individually released discs.

Noticed that Nickelback's Burn It To The Ground is censored on the Closing Ceremony album. However, it's not on the Canada's Hockey Anthems (Sounds of Vancouver 2010) album.
