Origin/Composer: John Williams
Year: 1996

This song is the theme that John Williams composed for the 1996 Olympics, especially commemorating the centennial of the Modern Olympic Games. The sections have titles reflecting what each section is supposed to represent: Fanfare, Prologue, Flags, Contest, and Parade. Our high school band played this my senior year. Though it sounded nowhere near the power and the harmony that the Boston Pops under John’s Williams’ conducting managed to produce. This song was my ringtone for nearly two months, ever since I got my new phone after my old phone went for a swim with me. Go. Listen. Let the victorious fanfare ring in your ears.
