It's the taking part that counts - a global pop sportsday is a compilation of 26 exclusive tracks, by 26 indie, folk and electronic artists, one for each of the 26 Olympic sports...

it includes exclusive tunes from (among others) Saint Etienne (athletics), White Town (weightlifting), Darren Hayman (wrestling), Hannah Peel (hockey), the Butterflies of Love (basketball) and Archbishop Desmond Tutu (football)...

a track is previewed every week up to the games on the blog - http://wiaiwya-itsthetakingpartthatcounts.blogspot.co.uk .

Where possible, acts with an association with each sport have been chosen to do the relevant tracks, for example Jyoti from chart toppers White Town dabbles in weightlifting, DJ Downfall's hobby is archery, Liam massiveannefrank is a triathlete and Igancio Hacia Dos Veranos' brother was an Argentinean tae kwon do champion...

for his modern pentathlon track Simon Fox has written 5 five line verses for a song in 5/4 time, coming it at exactly 5 minutes...

Hannah Peel reminisces about a bullying Hockey teacher, and Darren Hayman also goes back to school for "Bundle!" his surf/garage wrestling anthem...

and then of course for cycling it had to be Town Bike, canoe & kayak had to be Floatation Toy Warning, and who else could do ping pong but Hong Kong In the 60s?
