All That Glitters

So you might have noticed that there's going to be some large scale competitive sports thingy going on next week. Whilst Centrelinked hates any kind of bandwagon jumping and would never try to make any self-serving connection with 'the Games' that hadn't been authorised personally by Lord Sebastian of Coe himself and signed in his own blue blood, we thought what the hell and had a golden theme. Tunes were:  

  • Fools Gold – Stone Roses
  • The Golden Age – TV On the Radio
  • Gold Soundz – Pavement
  • LES Artists - Santogold
  • Gold – XTC
  • Band of Gold - Freda Payne
  • I am the Black Gold of the Sun – Nu-Yorican Soul
  • All That Glitters – Death in Vegas
  • What’s Golden – Jurassic 5
  • Gold and Silver – Toots and the Maytals
  • I’ve Got a Golden Ticket - Charlie and (lazy) Grandpa Joe
  • Sunlight Bathed the Golden Glow - Felt
  • The Golden Age of Aviation – the Lucksmiths
  • The Golden Age of Nicotine – Custard
  • Heart of Gold – Neil Young
  • Golden Earrings – Peggy Lee
  • Golden Slumbers – the Beatles
  • Goldfinger – Shirley Bassey
  • The Man with the Golden Gun - Lulu
  • Gold Digger - Kanye West and Jamie Foxx
  • Golden Years – David Bowie
  • The Golden Path – the Chemical Brothers and Wayne Coyne
  • Oh La La - Goldfrapp
  • Gold – Spandau Ballet
  • Theme from the Golden Girls (Thank You for Being a Friend)
There are so many others that could have been played but for reasons of length (like James' rather mental 7 minutes of Goldmother) and highly restricted availability (Gruff Rhys' 2012 Record Store Day limited 7" Gold Medal Winner) we had to leave it there. Feel free to leave your own personal golden nuggets in the comments below...
