Música olímpica ¡para todos!

El domingo pasado fue la ceremonia de clausura de los Juegos Olímpicos Londres 2012. Han sido unos buenos Juegos Olímpicos a nivel deportivo, con muchas emociones. Y para México en especial porque el equipo de fútbol ganó una medalla de oro. Pero también han sido unos buenos juegos para la música. Las ceremonias de apertura y clausura contaron con alineaciones de lujo y un soundtrack envidiable. Ningún país del mundo podría musicalizar su historia y hablar de cultura con tan buena música como los ingleses.

El encargado de musicalizar y producir estas ceremonias fue nada más y nada menos que el director de cine Danny Boyle a quien muchos amamos por su brillante "Trainspotting" y su genial "Shallow Grave". Y Boyle hizo un gran trabajo con un catálogo musical extensísimo. The Beatles no podía faltar, pero... ¡David Bowie! ¡Blur! ¡ Radiohead! ¡Duran Duran! ¡The Clash! ¡Led Zeppelin! Y ya, de plano, como una gran cereza, gigante y jugosa, ¡los Arctic Monkeys en vivo! Interpretando su pegajosa "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" y un cover de "Come Together" de The Beatles. Aquí lo puedes escuchar, pero sólo escuchar porque por razones de copyright olímpico no se pueden difundir las imágenes:

Pero, después del disfrute auditivo, surge lo inevitable: pensar en las numerosas ausencias que hubo en la selección. The Smiths, The Cure, Depeche Mode. ¿Y The Stone Roses? Seguramente podrán pensar en varios más que no estuvieron en la lista. ¿Falta de espacio? ¿No estarán entre los favoritos de Boyle? Eso sólo lo sabe él.

Y aunque la clausura tuvo sus buenos destellos (gracias a los siempre interesantes Pet Shop Boys), faltó un poco el factor sorpresa o algo que fuera realmente inolvidable. Fue un poco anticlímax el que Ed Sheeran entonara "Wish You Were Here" de Pink Floyd o que Jessie J hiciera mancuerna con Queen.

Pero bueno, mejor enfocarnos en el vaso medio lleno que en el medio vacío y no ponernos de puristas. Después de todo, es la clausura de un evento mediático que llega a miles de millones de personas. Por ello, a continuación, el playlist (parcial) de la ceremonia de apertura de lo XXX Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012. No está nada mal para deleitar a los oídos un buen rato, hacerse una lista para el iPod o un CD para el auto, ya seas iniciado o principiante:
