Tonight marks the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympics in Rio. What better excuse do you need to throw a party and watch it with your favorite people? There are tons of great recipes and decorating ideas for a slam-dunk Olympics party all over Pinterest, but our forte is much more harmonic. Read on to get the low-down on our favorite songs to add to your playlist for a perfect Olympics-viewing party!
1. Europe///The Final Countdown
It wouldn't be American to start a list like this with anything other than the Final Countdown.
2. White Stripes///Seven Nation Army
It's groovy, it's catchy, it's the perfect tune to cheer you on as you cheer on your country.
3. Bruce Springsteen///Born in the USA
Say it with us.... "USA! USA! USA!"
4. Black Eyed Peas/// I Gotta Feeling
We've got a feeling that team USA is the best. Plus, we never mind being pumped up by tried and true Black Eyed Peas
5. Kanye West/// Stronger
It's like sending a little pep talk to your favorite athletes.
6. Journey///Don't Stop Believin'
It would be pretty silly to create any playlist without including this classic, but in this instance, it really does fit the theme perfectly.
7. Survivor///Eye of the Tiger
Bum....bum-bum-bum...bum-bum-bum.... Olympics. Can you imagine if every event started with a few bars of this classic song!?
8. Meghan Trainor///Me Too
You have to get a little cocky when it comes to the Olympics. We can't win unless we believe we're the best! Thank you, Ms. Trainor, for reminding us how good confidence looks on us.
9. Justin Timberlake/// Can't Stop the Feeling
For when endorphins and energy are flying, things are looking good for the Red, White, and Blue, and you just can't help but move and sway.
10. Katy Perry///Rise
Katy said she wrote this song because of the mood of our country and world right now and wanted to release it now especially for the Olympic games. People are calling it the 2016 Olympics theme song. It's a powerful one!
