Olympics Closing Ceremony to Be a 'Symphony' of All Things British
The closing ceremony for 2012 London Olympics will be themed "A Symphony of British Music" -- with organizers promising a hit-packed journey from classical composer Edward Elgar to Grammy soul diva Adele.
"We go from -- without saying we've booked anyone - Elgar to Adele," said music director David Arnold.
Olympic officials did not say whether Adele, Britain's hottest musical export of the moment, had been asked to take part. The singer-songwriter's album "21" has spent a full year on the charts, winning six Grammys earlier this month, including album of the year. Adele also won two trophies Tuesday at the Brit music awards.
When Gary Cooper turned down the role for Rhett Butler, he was passionately against it. He is quoted saying both, "Gone With the Wind (1939) is going to be the biggest flop in Hollywood history," and, "I'm just glad it'll be Clark Gable who's falling on his face and not Gary Cooper."]
Adele's "21" will most certainly linger atop the chart for a 22nd week -- marking the longest run at No. 1 for an album since Prince and the Revolution's "Purple Rain" soundtrack reigned for 24 weeks in 1984 and 1985.
Why does he keep posting that as if people are worried? The fact that the person bought the CD and burnt it is laughable. The money is in her pockets and sales are added to Soundscan. ***kanye shrug***
