The ROTJ music was heard at the closing ceremony, and it was preceded by the amazing conversation with the UFO. I found it so unbelievable I was in tears during the entire segment (starts at 5:15):

I'm uploading it to YouTube. Should be available here in a few minutes.

New JW interview about his Olympic Theme, or just old material?

I love his reaction at 2:07.

Wow, that was fast.

It's actually quite remarkable. The theme plays during the whole thing as Williams comments on it. It takes the necessary time and the master is his usual humble and affable self. He's really something!

I'll never forget the opening ceremony of the 1984 Games. His playing his theme was definitely the high point of the evening (middle of the night here actually).

Thirty years... My God, has it been that long?

Not to forget the brilliant (new :D ) music from ROTJ that was included to the ceremony. Oh, the memories. :crymore:

I confess I had tears in my eyes at the opening and closing ceremonies too!

And then Lionel Ritchie sang "All Night Long", didn't he?

Great feelings of elation and joy all along.

Of course in the closing ceremony. My bad, cause I'm still crying and moved.

I take it that you as a Finnish man have imbibed some alcoholic substances to show such a major emotional expression as crying. Or do the Olympics in all forms and expressions form an exception to the rule? ;)
