Just Some Olympic Glory Jams: Revival's Friday Playlist!

See...Gabby Douglas really can fly!
There is nothing like the thrill of the Olympics!  What can beat the stories of focus, endurance and sacrifice?  Nothing, we tell you.  Plus, we can't forget all those sparkly costumes.

Over wings and vodka sodas at Donnelly's Shopgirls Anna and Hannah threw this together, as the Girls All Around Gymnastics Finals played in the background.  Just a few hits for you, just off the top of the dome.  We like to think of this as Jock Jams for the Gold Metal Set.

Song 1: "Chariots of Fire" - Vangelis
Shopgirl Hannah:  "We have to include that, you know, either first or last.  It is what the Olympics sounds like."

Song 2: "London Calling" - The Clash
Shopgirl Anna:  "Because the Olympics are in London, duh"

Song 3: "Viva La Vida" - Coldplay
Shopgirl Anna: "Because they are English and it sort of sounds like 'Chariots of Fire.'

Song 4:  "My Generation" - The Who
Shopgirl Anna: "Once again they are English and they sound badass."

Song 5: "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Shopgirl Hannah: "I can just visualize all the athletes in their little outfits marching around to this."

Song 6: "Run this Town" - Jay-Z with Rihanna and Kanye West
Shopgirl Anna:  "Because the Americans are going to run London.  USA! USA! USA!"

Song 7: "We are the Champions" - Queen
Shopgirl Hannah: "Classic."

Song 8: "I Believe I Can Fly" - R. Kelly
Shopgirl Hannah: "Because we believe in the American girls gymnastics team, and I believe they can fly."

Song 9: "Uprising" - Muse
Shopgirl Anna:  "I bet Michael Phelps has that song playing in his headphones AS WE SPEAK."

Song 10: "Jump Around" - House of Pain
Shopgirl Hannah:  "Let's do this one because it is so peppy.  You know, energetic."

Song 11: "Eye of the Tiger" - Survivor
Shopgirl Anna:  "Classic II"

Song 12: "Gold on the Ceiling" - The Black Keys
Shopgirl Anna: "Let's get some indie rock up in this joint.  Plus it was the best option when I googled 'songs about gold.'

Please enjoy our art. Happy Olympics.

Go for the Gold - Shopgirls Anna & Hannah
