 6.THE OLYMPIAN / LIGHTING OF THE TORCH
"TO REACH FOR THE GOLD AND STRIVE FOR PERFECTION IS WHAT THE OLYMPICS ARE ALL ABOUT. IT IS THIS SPIRIT AND
QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE THAT INSPIRED US TO REACH OUT MUSICALLY AND PAY TRIBUTE TO THE DEDICATION OF THE
WORLD'S FINEST ATHLETES." - LOVERBOY
"IT IS A GREAT PLEASURE FOR ME TO BE PART OF THE OLYMPIC EXPERIENCE. HAVING COMPETED IN SPORTS IN MY EARLIER DAYS,
IT WAS EXCITING FOR ME TO NOW MAKE MY CONTRIBUTION MUSICALLY. WRITING A SONG FOR THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF THE
HIGHLIGHTS OF MY CAREER". - GIORGIO MORODER
"SPORTS, LIKE MUSIC, IS AN INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE WE CAN ALL SHARE. TO BE INVOLVED WITH THIS OLYMPICS ALBUM
PROJECT IS A GREAT THRILL FOR ME. THE ONLY GREATER THRILL FOR ME WOULD BE IF I WERE OUT THERE PLAYING ON THE
U.S. BASKETBALL TEAM MYSELF." - BOB JAMES
"WE WROTE THIS SONG TO CAPTURE THE SPIRIT OF SWIMMING COMPETITION AND FOUND, WHEN IT WAS COMPLETED,
THAT FOR US IT ENCOMPASSED THE BEAUTY, PAGEANTRY, COMPETITION AND EXCITEMENT OF ALL THE OLYMPICS.
WE ARE PLEASED TO BE A PART OF THIS HISTORIC EVENT." - BURT BACHARACH, CAROLE BAYER SAGER & CHRISTOPHER CROSS
"AMIDST THE THUNDER OF THOSE ROARING FOR A VICTORY, THE ONLY RHYTHM THE BOXERS DANCE TO IS THE STRENGTH OF
SURVIVAL AND A POWER THEY DRAW FROM WITHIN. IT IS WITH THIS PASSION FOR BEING THE BEST THAT 'MOODIDO (THE MATCH)'
WAS CREATED." - TOTO

"THE OLYMPIC GAMES CONTINUE TO FACINATE AND INSPIRE EACH ONE OF US - WITH EVERY PRESENTATION OF THE GAMES,
WE EXPERIENCE THAT COMPLETE DEDICATION AND UNSHAKEABLE WILL TO PERSEVERE THAT TYPIFIES THE GOAL OF EACH
COMPETITOR. THE HUMAN SPIRIT SOARS, AND WE STRIVE FOR THE BEST WITHIN US.
THESE ARE THE QUALITIES WHICH WE SEEK TO CAPTURE, DESCRIBE AND PRESERVE THROUGH MUSIC, AND IT HAS BEEN MY
GREAT HONOR TO CONTRIBUTE OLYMPIC FANFARE AND THEME TO THE 1984 LOS ANGELES OLYMPIC GAMES. I DEDICATE IT
LOVINGLY TO ALL PARTICIPATING ATHLETES, FROM WHOM WE DERIVE SO MUCH STRENGTH AND INSPIRATION." - JOHN WILLIAMS

"SOMETHING THAT HAS NOT CHANGED FROM HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO IS THE PURE SPIRIT AND FAITH OF THE VERY YOUNG,
AS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE OLYMPICS. WE WANTED TO CAPTURE THE SPIRIT, GRACEFULNESS, COURAGE AND STRENGTH OF
THESE ATHLETES IN THEIR GYMNASTIC COMPETITION, FOR THEIR NOBILITY AND MATURITY COMES THROUGH IN ALL THAT
THEY ATTEMPT." - QUINCY JONES AND JEREMY LUBBOCK

FANFARES DERIVATIVE OF THE VALOUR STATELINESS, AND GRANDEUR OF THE OLYMPICS. THE FOLLOWING SECTION
PERSONIFIES ACTION, EXCITEMENT, STRIVING AND EXPECTATION. IN THE SLOW MOVEMENT I PUT MYSELF INTO THE BODY
OF THE ATHLETE DURING THE COMPETITION. THE INNER CALM AND CONCETRATION FELT DURING THE ACTUAL
PERFORMANCE OF THE SPORT IS THE SENSATION THAT THIS MOVEMENT EXPRESSES. THEN WE JUMP BACK INTO THE
EXTERNAL ASPECTS FOR THE TRIUMPHANT EMOTION OF WINNING AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE PIECE." - BILL CONTI

INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGE OF THE MARATHON AND THE OLYMPICS. MUSIC, LIKE SPORTS, IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING

"I CAN THINK OF NO EVENT TO COMPARE WITH THE OLYMPIC GAMES WHICH MAKES US SO CONSCIOUS OF OUR SHARED
HUMANITY, OUR COMMON FATE. THE TORCH LIGHTING CEREMONY STRIKES ME AS THE ESSENTIAL SYMBOL THE SUMMING UP,
OF THIS, OUR SHARED CONSCIOUSNESS. SURELY IT IS A RARE EVENT IN THE LIFE OF ANY ARTIST WHEN HE IS ASKED TO MAKE
A PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO SUCH A PUBLIC EVENT. IT HAS MADE THIS FOR ME A UNIQUELY CHALLENGING AND INSPIRING
EXPERIENCE." - PHILIP GLASS
