It's the taking part that counts

I shan’t pretend this owl gives two hoots (ahem) about the Olympics, infact I would goes as far to say I bloody hate the Olympics.

wiaiwya - it's the taking part that counts

But bitter PE athletics memories aside, this blog/compilation album by Wiaiwya (click image above) uses the classic ‘it's the taking part that counts’ insult to make even the most apathetic spectator consider the Games... Well not really, but it does unite 26 artists, with 26 songs loosely based around 26 Olympic sports which is far more interesting than the real Olympics.
Especially when they include works from Saint Etienne (athletics), Darren Hayman (wrestling) and this cracker from Hong Kong in the 60s and this plinky-pop ode to table tennis.
