As of the time of this writing, nobody still knows what the official Beijing Olympics theme song is. They say that the official Beijing Olympics theme song will only be known during the opening of the Beijing Olympics on 8/8/08.
There are several songs that could possibly be chosen as the official Beijing Olympics theme song. If you go to youtube and type “Beijing Olympics theme song,” youtube will give you several songs with different titles that purport to be the Olympics theme song.
One of my favorite songs that may not be the official Beijing Olympics theme song is the song entitled “Welcome to Beijing.” This is probably the official theme song for the City of Beijing in welcoming tourists to Beijing, but I don’t think this is the official Olympics theme song.
The song “Welcome to Beijing” is performed by famous artists and singers. Majority of theme are from mainland China and Hongkong although there are others from several Asian countries such as South Korea. I don’t know most of them, but I do know two because they are famous stars in Chinese films.They are Karen Mok and Jacky Chan.
The song has a catchy tune. I particularly like the singers wearing the Chinese traditional renaissance clothing. The only draw back of the song is that it is sung in Mandarin. It is quite ironic that the song that is supposed to welcome tourists is sung in the native language. Nevertheless because it is sung in Mandarin, it makes the song more exotic and unique.
Even if you can’t make it to Beijing this 8/8/08 and even if it is not the official Olympics theme song this song will make you very much feel welcome to Beijing and the Olympics 2008. Here is a youtube video of the song with the English translation.

Update: Here is the official Beijing Olympics 2008 theme song, unveiled and sung for the first time in public during the Olympics opening ceremonies on August 8, 2008. The Title of the Olympics theme song is “You and me” sung by popular Chinese singer Liu Huan and British soprano Sarah Brightman.
