We are obsessed over the NBC Sports Olympic coverage song for Rio 2016.
An arbiter of hit anthems (like “Firework” for gay pride), Katy Perry has done it again!
Her song “Rise,” has us pumped up for the Rio Olympics!
The song’s powerful tone makes us feel like we could be the recipients of gold medals, ourselves. But keep in mind that the song isn’t magic, so try not to do anything impulsive – like taking on the high jump or discus, when you probably haven’t been near a track or field since high school.
When, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, “You’re out of time”
But still I rise
If the powerful lyrics aren’t enough by themselves to get you inspired, watch the accompanying video below and then tell us you don’t have all of the feels.
We thought so.
