Theme song for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games-We Are Ready

I find the introduction a bit annoying. And the rest of the song as well. So sue me.
Normally I don't go along with the hooplah surrounding the Olympic Games because it aims for a sentimental feel-good display of world harmony, and yet has betrayed the original intentions of the modern founder, becoming another stage for nationalism to rear its ugly head. The fact that China has invested so much money and effort in order to prove its emergence as a world power just makes my reaction worse this time around.
