Reasons Number 1 - 10 Why I'm Glad The Olympics Are Over

1. No longer having to hear I Believe 50 times a day.

2-10. See above.


It wasn't a very good song to begin with. Having it on a constant loop for two weeks was torture.

Canada is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to music. Surely, we could have done better.

What this song?

There comes a moment when my heart must stand alone
On this lonely path I've chosen
Like a house that's not a home

Sometimes when I feel I've had enough
And I feel like giving up
You willed me to be all I can be
Now nothing can stop me

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I

This is the moment we have dreamed of all our lives
We'll be the change we wish from others
We'll stand tall for what is right
And in my heart there'll be no doubt
The arms of the world will come reaching out
And embrace me to be all I can be
Now nothing can stop me

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I
I believe in the power of you and I

I believe, I believe, I believe in..
I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe, I believe in..
I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe, I believe in you

I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I
I believe the time is right now
To stand tall and make the world proud
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
(Of you and I)

There comes a moment when my heart must stand alone
On this lonely path I've chosen
Like a house thats not a home

Sometimes when I feel I've had enough
And I feel like giving up
You willed me to be all I can be
Now nothing can stop me

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I

This is the moment we have dreamed of all our lives
We'll be the change we wish from others
We'll stand tall for what is right
And in my heart there'll be no doubt
The arms of the world will come reaching out
And embrace me to be all I can be
Now nothing can stop me

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I
I believe in the power of you and I

I believe, I believe, I believe in..
I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe, I believe in..
I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe, I believe in you

I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I
I believe the time is right now
To stand tall and make the world proud
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
(Of you and I)

I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I
(Power)

I believe the time is right now
(Of you and I)
Stand tall and make the world proud

I believe together well fly
(Together we'll fly)
I believe in the power of you and I
I believe in the power of you and I

Now that's just mean, John.

Someone sent me a recording of the Calgary Olympics song. Even though it sounds dated, it was still much better than this bit of drek.

Only thing worse was Eugene Levy's kid and that other kid from MTV and their Olympic coverage that seemed to have nothing to do with the actual Olympics. At least he got his father's eyebrows, if not his talent.
