It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a hologram of Freddie Mercury? Er no, it’s Matt Bellamy and cohorts with the official Olympics anthem that seemingly pays homage to Queen. If you get The Show Must Go On and add a dash of We Are The Champions/Bohemian Rhapsody and Freddie’s Barcelona and you have ‘Survival’. And to be honest, this isn’t too bad for a track for something official such as the Olympics. I love the prelude, the track has just enough cheddar to cover the event and a great rhythm for an opening ceremony firework display to match.
EDIT: The IOC have just released this video July 4 2012 – The Countdown is on!
