Sportsong of the Week #41


"Now We Are Free"

Enya

2000

Written by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard

(From OST Gladiator)

At the moment I am still in old Rome vibe, so it's no surprise that this became the Sportsong of the Week. A little later than normal. It also helps when it is from the official soundtrack of one of my favourite movies of all time: Gladiator. The way they had to train and fight for their lives makes it one of the toughest and baddest sports ever in my opinion. So to honour all the fallen gladiators this weeks song is 'Now We Are Free' written by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard.

The original score and songs of the Gladiator soundtrack were composed by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard and were released in 2000, titled Gladiator: Music From the Motion Picture. The Lyndhurst Orchestra performing the score was conducted by Gavin Greenaway. The album won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and was also nominated for the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Score! Truly deserved!

Spaniard! Spaniard! Spaniard!

Extra: Mash up between movie scenes and No Church In the Wild by Jay-Z and Kanye West (Feat. Frank Ocean)
