For the Go For the Gold theme - if you need ballet songs, try "Gold" by Linda Eder (theme of the Salt Lake City olympics, i believe?) and "The Power of the Dream" by Celine and "Reach" by Gloria Estefan(again, I think this one was for the Atlanta Olympics) They are perfect and have a great message!

Earth Angel - The Penguins
Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus
Silence
Tainted Love (not the Marilyn Manson version)
Silence
Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve
The Freshmen - The Verve Pipe
Barbie Girl - Aqua

Howzat
Beach Baby
Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp She Bomp)?
