Listen! Underworld – Caliban’s Dream (from London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony)
If you watched the London 2012 Summer Olympic Opening Ceremonies, you will have noticed
THE QUEEN AND JAMES BOND that Underworld did a pretty great job scoring the music. Arguably the stand out piece was Caliban’s Dream, which featured Alex Trimble from Two Door Cinema Club, as well as Only Men Aloud, Dockhead Choir, Elizabeth Roberts, and Esme Smith. Surprisingly, a version has made it onto YouTube and has NOT been taken down by the famously aggressive International Olympic Committee. Perhaps because it’s a legally purchased, audio-only uploading of the song? It doesn’t matter – what matters is that you can listen to it below. Feel inspired to get off the couch after listening to the 7-minutes of this simple yet beautiful tune by Underworld. The song is part of Isle of Wonder, which we noted earlier today went to number 1 in the charts.
