Olympic Playlist: GLORY DAYS!

Oh God, it's over (still I cling!). Since the opening ceremonies I've been pinned to my couch every night, enduring NBC's absolutely awful Olympic coverage to support my nation (America! Fuck yeah!). I mean, I still believed in Michael Phelps when everyone was all meh but Ryan Lochte is gonna be a star and he so hot blah blah blah. Nah, people, Michael Phelps is an American hero. I was right all along and everyone else was a non-believer.

Also, Gabby Douglas is now an American hero because I say so.

Despite what this guy was expecting, I thought London did a sterling job. Brilliant! Aces! Razzers! A tip of my Victorian-style top hat to Danny Boyle and his soundtrack. The Anglophile in me was bopping along the entire time.

So in honor of the end of the 2012 Olympic Games and the glorious United Kingdom, I present to you a special suburban grrrl soundtrack for -- wait for it -- the champion in all of us.
