The 2012 Summer Olympic Games kick off in London on July 27. In anticipation, we’ve hand-picked a few of our favorite celebratory, uplifting, and inspirational tracks in our dedicated playlist: Olympic Gold.
Highlights include a rousing motivational track by Dana Buoy aka Akron/Family percussionist Dana Janssen [his debut album Summer Bodies reflects "the genuinely happy work of a charmed life," The Fader]; a mellow ballad from Chicago singer-songwriter Young Man, whose second album, Vol. 1 contains “truly stellar introspection from a young adult on the verge of something big” [Consequence Of Sound]; and an anthem of perseverance from Right The Stars, an LA band compared to Scars On 45 and Mat Kearney.
