Sarah McLachlan “One Dream” Olympic Theme

By  | 

I love Sarah McLachlan.  I think that she’s incredibly talented and I just love her unique voice.  The song that she was commissioned to write for the upcoming Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games has leaked onto the internet and, of course, I had to listen to it.

The track is called “One Dream” and I have to say that I don’t really love it.  I don’t hate it, exactly, but it just feels weird for an Olympic song.  It lacks the power and energy that I was expecting since the Games are so, well, athletic.  It’s not quite a ballad but it’s typically Sarah. 

She sounds beautiful, as always, but I’m just not sold on this being the official Olympics song.  Listen to it and tell me what you think!
