And I Will Kiss; Underworld

And I Will Kiss” is a track written by Rick Smith of electronic group Underworld for the Isles of Wonder opening ceremony of the 2012 summer Olympics in London, and the fourth track on the official soundtrack. The title makes reference to a speech given by Caliban in Act 2, Scene 2 of The Tempest by William Shakespeare:
I’ll show thee every fertile inch o’ the island;
And I will kiss thy foot. I prithee, be my god.

The track accompanied the Pandemonium section of the ceremony, which depicted the Industrial Revolution in Britain.¹
