The Sounds of Summer- Day 86/95: “Bugler’s Dream”- Leo Arnaud. You may not know this song by the title- but as soon as you hear three seconds of it you will know the tune. It is the music that is played on television every Olympic Games. It was composed by composer Leo Arnaud in 1958- and began to be used by ABC for their Olympic coverage in 1964. In 1964 the games were held in Tokyo- and next summer the 2020 Summer Olympics will also be held in Tokyo. My first Olympics was the 1968 Mexico City games. I watch every year but now with declining interest but I do still watch. Love this Olympic theme. They do use the song for the Winter games also but I always relate it to the summer games.
