I am so psyched I found this! :o

Not a ceremony vid but one of my favorite music videos ever.

NBC did an Olympic compilation album prior to the Seoul Olympics. One Moment In Time was on that album and after Seoul was over, this music video was released:

One Moment In Time

Features a great scene of the Seoul Dove BBQ :P

I loved the performance of the Italian anthem, it was great, unfortunately the dvd of the ceremonies I have does not include it.

I have tried to find two clips from Sydney the anthem and the lighting, but can't, i know one of them is on the IOC site, but its poor quality.

I've been trying to find for years, the cultural presentation of Atlanta, the five tribes, "Summertime", and have come up empty handed :(

If anyone has Barcelona, Sydney, or especially Atlanta on an internet file, (WOW, similar to Ravn) please post it here, or any other cereomy files.

Know requests have been dragged on here FOREVER before, but I might as well ask again.

- Thanks B)

What? Have you tried the high-bandwidth version? Because that one is actually very good quality.

Not quite the same as an Olympic ceremony - but if you wanna see Delta Goodrem get lost in a sea of fireworks while warbling at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony - here ya go! Great song, poor staging.

From the closing here is Sarah Blasko doing an amazing version of 'Don't Dream It's Over'

Also from the closing, here is the Dehli 2010 spectacular -

India 2010

Some new YouTube links:

Koreana's theme song for the Seoul 1988 Games: "Hand In Hand". I didn't know that they even had all former Olympic mascots perform in the opening ceremony -- you can see at least Misha the bear (I believe), Sam the eagle and Hodori the tiger dancing together starting with 3:08 minutes. Very cute!

Haha :lol: i published that athens vids looks like someone post them before xD Anyway thanks for publish them.

Never sawed that Calgary & Sarajevo videos. Interesting to see if David Foster would compose scores for the Vancouver Games too (who knows, maybe they also bring a little homage to his 1988 theme)
