Now I could have made a Five on Friday banner with the Olympic rings, but you're not supposed to use the image if you're not affiliated with the Olympic Games. I don't want to get in trouble, so I'll use my regular summer banner.
The 30th Olympiad begins tonight with the opening ceremonies. I'm not going to do the obvious...five songs from British artists. I just grabbed a collection of tunes that caught my ear this week...with a Brit or two in there for flavor.
Enjoy the opening weekend!
