Sporting fanfare music
Having foolishly volunteered the work the sounds/lighting desk at the opening of our new school building, I now need to find some snazzy music to use. We have a world-class badminton player coming to do the official opening so something with a sporting theme would be nice.
Just wondered if anyone can think of any fanfares / exciting music to use - preferably something fairly short so that I can program the lights around it.
So far I've thought of:
- Chariots of Fire (could be a bit long and not fanfare-ish enough)
- Barcelona (but we're not in Barcelona. Could be offputting!)
- Fanfare for the Common Man by Copland
Has anyone got any other ideas??

Also Sprach Zarathustra (used in 2001)
Call of the Champions - John Williams (you'd have to sample a bit of the middle)
Mars, the bringer of War (Holst, Planet Suite)
Trumpet Voluntary (Clark)
There are many trumpet fanfare audio clips out there!

Surely it's got to be either Eye of the Tiger by Survivor or Final Countdown by Europe.

I'm really enjoying the suggestions on this thread.
Interesting suggestion about PJ & Duncan. Scary thought for the day - this was actually played at a Haven site where I went for a weekend break as an intro to a music evening.
Seriously ... some great ideas here, especially the John Williams ones. I also found the Rocky theme which is good.
In the end, it'll depend what the head goes for so I guess I'll find a top 3 tunes and see what she chooses!

One night in Bangkok by Murry Head also has a fairly good intro.
