Single Olympics Torched!
Published Mar 24, 2008The beleaguered IOCs latest headache comes courtesy of Vancouverite Geoff Berners scathing new single, "Official Theme Song for the 2010 Vancouver/Whistler Olympic Games (The Dead Children Were Worth It). Available at geoffberner.com, the satiric anthem reflects BC residents anger at their government for slashing funds to accommodate the games. "Its all about how BC shut down the office that investigates why children died there, Berner specifies. "It had a four million dollar budget and so now, a lot of children who died in government care we have no fucking idea why. As an artist in the 21st century Ive gotta make a living, so when Premier Gordon Campbell begged me to write this song, I was like, Okay boss. I abdicate all moral responsibility for it, frankly.
