Team USA came back to the hotel celebrating their Gold Medals singing "we are young" by Fun. If only y'all could hear them! Hilarious
VIDEO: Fun. - We Are Young ft. Janelle Monáe
Fun's 'We are Young' is a great hype song for a night out. For me the song connotes the feeling of recapturing lost youth. I was thrilled to find that Team USA 2012 used this song as their celebration anthem. The appeal of these great teams is that they immortalise these already elite players, making them young forever. When presented as a once-in-a-lifetime ensemble of the generation's best it makes the moment and their achievements more eternal because of its singularity.
In real life we age but we're timeless in memory and in Video Games. Heroes die but Legends live forever.
