Why was Rene Simard's Montreal Olympics 1976 theme song boycotted?
According to Sports Illustrated Magazine, March 8, 1976: "...Canadians have failed to respond to the 'official' Olympic Games welcoming song. Recorded by a teen-age singing sensation named René Simard, whose records usually sell in the hundreds of thousands in Canada, Bienvenue à Montréal (Welcome to Montreal) has been a bomb. Miffed by this is André Morin, whose title is director general of official ceremonies. 'We could sell millions of records,' he says, 'but it must be played over the air. The press and the radio don't want it on the air because of their personal evaluation of the song.' A Montreal radio station confirms this, but insists that its refusal to play Welcome to Montreal is actually an effort to help the Olympics. The song, it says, is both unimaginative and overpromotional, and because there is so much cynicism already about the Olympics, 'playing the song might turn a lot of people off.'"
Of course Rene Simard Sang at Montreal Olympic Stadium.... did he? that is what i hoped! if he did sing at he opening ceremony, could you please provide some evidence? i have done a lot of research but could not find any. his song was the official theme song but was boycotted by the media. there is no such evidence that rene sang at either ceremonies in the olympic official recording book.
Good wedding planners should be able to meet the needs of their clients no matter what the theme of the wedding is. That is what they get paid for. You can look for wedding planners in your phone book and phone (let your fingers do the walking) to see if they can handle your request of a Moroccan theme wedding.
Owing to the Multi-national nature of the Games, it poses some intercultural problems. Individual nations have their National anthems and/or patriotic songs which are pressed into service, as it were for national teams. I am not aware of any specific Olympics Theme song- in the sense of a theme song like that of a movie or television show such as (Batman) or (Star Trek)- the latter was an instrumental.

Song is evidentally a march or instrumental piece.l To my knowledge there is no Olympics theme song, thogh there asre, of course national anthems of each National team involved. You may be thinking of (Chariots of Fire) again this is an instrumental and does not have words. While the actual song does not have words there was a spoof done in Canada in the 1980s. I don't remember all the words but the question has…
