    hopefully you can find the youtube bit on this link. It is from a company that sells import instruments. this song seems to have been played at the 2008 Olympics. Lots of double/triple tonguing in this fun, bright song. anyone have a name?

    thx - Craig

    I think it might actually be called, "Bugler's Dream", which is the theme written by John Williams for the 1968 Olympics in Grenoble, France. Or it could be the Olympic Fanfare and theme from the 1984 Olympics, also composed by Williams. Both very bright, lively articulate tonguing pieces. ( I couldn't get your link to come up at all so I checked out a few related searches)

    Apparently the 'Bugler's Dream' bit was written by Leo Arnaud, which became an intro to Williams' Olympic Fanfare and Theme.

    ('Bugler's Holiday' obviously the well-known Leroy Anderson piece)
