font size    

The fourth round of the campaign for a Beijing 2008 Olympic theme song has generated more than 420 musical scores and 4,800 lyrics, organizers said.

Most of the works came from professional musicians and according to the Organizing Committee of the 2008 Olympic Games (BOCOG) the quality is "quite high".

BOCOG said earlier that the deadline to submit candidate songs is March 10, 2008.

The worldwide solicitation, which was launched on Jan. 21, also targets a theme song for the 2008 Parlympic Games as well as theme songs for the torch relay and awarding ceremonies.

The theme song for the 2008 Olympics, to be picked from all the entries of the four editions, will be unveiled 100 days before the opening ceremony of the Games.

The Beijing Olympics take place from Aug. 8 to 24, 2008.
