Olympic Songs of the Day from cross country skier James Southam

Posted on

As the 2010 Winter Olympics kicks off in Vancouver, EW.com wanted to find out what music is inspiring US athletes. So we asked a variety of Olympic competitors what song (or playlist of songs) they’ll be grooving to before they compete. We’ll run these throughout the Games. Good luck, Team USA!

“Boys on The Docks” by Dropkick Murphys

“Upbeat fight song with some great lines.”

“A Singer of Songs” by Johnny Cash

“Mellow song that just hits you and builds strength within.”
