Same here, or just watch replays whereever I can. I'll watch the heats and things that take place during the morning over there, but no way in hell am I getting up at like 4am to watch the finals live. A lady needs her beauty sleep!JimJim wrote:I'm gonna have to watch the highlights package during primetime every night here, because I'm not dedicated enough to watch early morning coverage.
Same here. The opening ceremony began at 7am Sat morning here, which is way too early for a weekendJimJim wrote:Because of the timezones, most of the premier action takes place around 4-8AM here
Haha you're beasts in the water! I'm so happy Thiago Pereira got his silver medal at the 400m Medley!JimJim wrote:As per usual, like most Aussies all I really care about is the swimming!
That's so cool! I'm really looking forward to the Olympics in Rio (2016) so I can see the torchVirgostar wrote:Too bloody right! (Although I am biased since it was in my home city and I also got to see the torch relay run through my old suburb.)

An old Benny Goodman piece. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/olympi ... emony.htmlSholasBoy wrote:Looking back at that playlist there is definitely some omissions, for instance there was definitely a little a little of "Smile" by Lily in the opening section, also does anyone know what the kinda jazzy number was between the Mike Oldfield tracks when the nurses and beds were performing.
Caliban's Dream is now #11 iTunes! Underworld's And I Will Kiss is album only (being 17 minutes long!) - album is #1 iTunes. Again, see corresponding thread. As well as iTunes updates thread: http://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.p ... 09#3897309Flowing Friday's (July 27) lavish Olympic Games opening ceremony, 14 tracks selected by creative director Danny Boyle have started to make an impact on the Official Singles Chart.
Arctic Monkeys, Underworld, Muse and Emeli Sande lead the charge with two tracks each.
Arctic Monkeys' I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor re-enters the Official Singles Chart at Number 95, while their cover of The Beatles' Come Together is at 67. Underworld's Caliban's Dream is new in at 69, and their mega-hit, Born Slippy, re-enters at 111. Emeli Sande's break-through single Heaven re-enters at Number 125, while her heartfelt rendition of Abide With Me debuts at 180 after a mere 24 hours on sale. Muse's Survival is at 82, followed by their 2009 Top 10 smash, Uprising, at Number 104.
Dizzee Rascal's Bonkers is Number 80. The Jam's Going Underground and The Clash's London Calling re-enter at Number 102 and 128, respectively. Frank Turner's I Still Belive is at Number 97 and The Chemical Brothers' Galvanize is at 109. Vangelis' Chariots Of Fire, which was performed on the night by the London Symphony Orchestra with a little help from Mr Bean, is at 118.
This week's highest Olympics-related track, however, is Public Enemy's Harder Than You Think, climbing 44 places to Number 27 after featuring in Channel 4's Paralympics ad campaign.
LOL I only have Prime coverage cos we don't have Sky Sports, so I'm stuck with what they decide to show. I'm sorry but rowing is deathly boring, I don't care about it. Show me something interestingshrimpy_boy11 wrote:Only caring about the Rowing here. Its where New Zealand excels.
Oh and hockey... the win for the ladies against Aussie was a surprise!
Lastly i just like watching gymnastics cause its amazing what those athletes can do!
I could literally sit on the couch and watch the olympics live all day long.
Right now im watching river kayaking... river kayaking!! WTH?? Up next Dressage lol.
I did too. My parents were like "who the hell are they? They're crap!" when they played IBTYLGOTD (I on the other hand bopped & sang along), but my Dad had to concede that they did do a good rendition of Come Together.Wayne wrote:I forgot how much I enjoyed Arctic Monkey's Come Together performance.
I quite enjoy the rowing, but right now I'm watching too much swimming to care about what's happening there. Luckily I've got cable/Foxtel and can switch between 8 channels for action.Shorty wrote:I'm sorry but rowing is deathly boring, I don't care about it. Show me something interesting
I was surprised too! Brazil's team is back to Olympics after 16 years.Virgostar wrote:never realised how good your country is at basketball Wardo! I'd say they're in with a chance for a medal of some sort - probably bronze.
I agree.samra wrote:Sydney is and will forever be the best Olympic Games ever.
I couldn't believe either!Baditude wrote:I can't believe Michael Phelps didn't even medal in the swimming competition yesterday. I'm actually kinda happy, though, because I really don't like Phelps. Glad the USA's Ryan Lochte won the gold. Congrats to Brazil and Japan on beating Phelps.
