It's a post to match these Olympic times. I'm offering here some music of sport - a dozen items in which either someone sings about sport or there is music that has been used as the background for a sporting event.
1. Nessun Dorma - the most inspired use of music ever, by the Beeb for the 1990 Football World Cup in Italy.
2. Chariots of Fire. Enough said.
3. 'I don't like cricket, uh, no no, I love it, uh'.
4. 'Take Me Out To The Ball Game'. Gotta have a baseball song.
5. The music for the London Marathon - which effects a very personal tug of the heartstrings for me, recalling a day when I was deliriously happy at having taken part in the first such event and, to my surprise, completed it.
6. Formula 1 - not something I take much interest in, but I like this from Fleetwood Mac that the BBC uses for it.
7. In another life I'll be a surfer, not in this one.
8. World In Union - Rugby World Cup 2011.
9. 'Stand Up And Fight' - for boxing.
10. More cricket, lovely cricket.
11. United Road - one you might have foreseen.
12. And - showing that great music transcends even the most rooted sporting partisanship - 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
If I've missed something you would have included, don't worry. It's my list; you can make one of your own.
