Who Should Pen Olympic Song?


St Etienne want to soundtrack the 2012 Olympics. The band's music has long been inspired by the capital, and they're also noted for London documentaries Finisterre and What Have You Done Today, Mervyn Day? (the latter all about the lower Lea valley). In short, they're more Londony than Robert Elms in a chimerney-sweep costume clutching an eel pie. But who else might the Olympic organisers turn to? Baddiel and Skinner have previous experience. Dennis Waterman has the cockney credentials and passion for writing feem toons. Perhaps Blur could team up with Ken Livingstone again. Share your ideas in the comments, or even have a crack at writing the lyrics yourself.
