IDEA: Olympics to allow any song to be played on medal stand

You know what would be cool? In the Olympics when they have the athletes on the medal stand, they should let the winner pick a pop song from their country. And then everyone will dance to the song.

Right now it’s so boring to hear the same national anthem every time. And the people stand there like robots. When it should be party time for that country!

Years later it will be fun to look back at the award ceremonies and laugh at the songs that were picked. Mary Lou Retton picks Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Kerri Strug (the American gymnast who broke her ankle in 1996) picks the Backstreet Boys’ We’ve Got It Goin’ On.

I can see where that could be kinda fun if it was just the melody of the song and not the words because then people could say an ol’ ugly thing in a song and get away with it! What song would you choose? I think I’d go with “In Christ Alone” 🙂

and then nbc or the Olympics can market this by selling albums featuring the gold medal songs. There’s money in this.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
