Is NZ's Olympic song Gold or 4th place?

On stuff today is NZ's official song for the 2012 London Olympics. This idea is abit of a blast from the past and usually people don't like them as they are naff. http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/olympics/6763120/Street-musician-Sam-RB-pens-Olympic-song For mind, it's too slow and something that would appear on More FM's playlist. So a 4th place finish in my eyes. What do you reckon? is there a better NZ song out there? What are the best songs from previous sporting campaigns?

Well to be honest, I'd have to rate it as a DNF, do we even need a song? Seems like a bit of a waste of time. It's not like we need to build a stadium of 4 Million for this one. :)

I defiantly can't see Jacko Gill (if he makes it) or Valarie Vili playing it on thier MP3 players.


ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ plus the video looks like a 4 year old knocked it up during there lunch break at kindy. I think a song needs to be upbeat and a short catchy hook for a chorus but hey don't expect me to compose one as I'm tone deaf and far too busy being a knocker/keyboard warrior :)


It's a shocker and would not qualify for the Olympics let along a Karaoke competition down at your local. Geez the State Insurance lot did a better job with there latest ad and the Feelers 2011 RWC song was average but still better than this. Surely they could have used a better jingle.


No its really bad and a bit embarassing to be honest I'm sure they could have come up with something better!


no its a forth, tempo is to slow!


Its way too slow for an Olympic song. Its never going to get any body up beat and fired up. I think NZ should have gone for a real quirky won and got Flight Of The Concordes to do it if they wanted something like this. At least it'd be funny.


Well to be honest i kind of like it, but it probably needs to be remixed abit to make it faster and with more of a beat - it is the Olympics after-all............get an LMAFO sample in there that will get us party rocking :)


...I didn't really like it because it was a bit slow....its really boring...we needed a song that gets the athletes up and pumping ready for action not catching some Z's on the side line....they say there was a good judging panel...so the music they had to select from must of been bad...if the judges chose this one.....or the judges are not up with the times.....one of the two
