flock

Just play half of it, OK?

Am I the only person who thinks the B section of the canonical Olympic music really stinks?

The A section is stately and dignified, as befits the long tradition of people striving for excellence.

Then comes the B section, like Keystone Kops running frantically around and tripping over one another, or Shriners zipping around in their tiny cars.

They don't belong together. (Maybe the B section would sound OK by itself, but they've been bound for so long that you couldn't escape the comparison, so never mind.)

Feh.
