By Ian Nance, published 11/5/2015

No composer has embraced that challenge as eagerly as Tan Dun, whose submission to the Olympic ceremony is a radically bathetic pop ballad entitled One World, One Dream.

One world one dream; the impossible dream!

There's no harm in spending a little time in dream castles in the clouds; but plenty moving as permanent residents!

Och aye the noo, there's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip! Or said another way; facts are chiels tha' dinna whinge!

And those facts, basic human nature and inherent greed/lust for power/control; (we're nay mean ainy canny) tell us there can never ever be one world sharing a single dream!

Although it would be nice if we could get half way there, with the very first step making universal poverty the universal enemy!?

Perhaps that might be made more possible if we can just get the (it's ainy a valley not a gorge) rich and powerful to finally understand; that they can only ever take from this world what they brought into it; or, what shall it profit a man if he gains the entire world but loses his immortal soul!
