I'm not sure if this was posted already (if yes, then the Mods can delete this post). Her Majesty's message for Team GB, courtesy of 'The British Monarchy':

I'm not obsessed with royalty...I just think intensely about it.

For those members who enjoyed hearing the 2012 version of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill", here's a YouTube recording.

This version is now called "Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) 2012 Remix".

It is a remake/remix which was specially done and planned well in advance for the pyramid-building segment of the Closing Ceremony.

Kate Bush recorded new vocals earlier in the year and the track has been remixed for a large stadium atmosphere and acoustics. It's in a slightly different key, the drum and guitar sounds have been altered, it has different compression and is slightly slower than the original. At the Closing Ceremony the track was accompanied by live drummers (see the second clip).
Still a beautiful and evocative piece of music, just as the original was in 1985.
Turn up the volume and enjoy.

The next clip is the full package - The pyramid-building segment of the Closing Ceremony accompanied by "Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) 2012 Remix".
It's in HD and although there is some BBC commentator overlay, it's not too distracting. I believe this segment was cut from the initial US network TV broadcast so it may be the first time some members have seen it.
It's good.

thank you so much! I saw the BBC stream but was so upset that NBC cut it (among many other things).

this was one of my fav parts of the ceremony
