This week we're presenting to you songs of sport, victory, and defeat. Shit's about to get REAL in Rio when the 2016 Summer Olympics kick off tonight.
To all of the athletes around the world who are headed to Brazil to take place in this moment of global unity we offer, not just the gift of song, but these words of universal wisdom:
Try to be best
'cause you're only a man
and a man's gotta' learn to take it
try to believe
when the going gets rough (When the things get
that you gotta hang tough to make it (to be strong)
History repeats itself
try and you'll succeed
never doubt that you're the one
and you can have your dream
you're the best around
nothing is gonna ever keep you down
Things to do with yourself/others
