Seems like Kim Gavin and MD David Arnold paid heed to our very own Rembrandt Rob when choosing the music for the closing ceremoy. A mix of stuff, but considerably more that the athletes may relate to. I was a litte disappointed that FatBoy Slim didn't rise to he occasiion and take up my suggestion of mixing "One Day Like This" and "Hey Jude", but at least we got Elbow live with full orchestra and choral backng.
I can't say all the youngster's music appealed to me - I preferred Tinie Tempah when he was still known as Small Strop - but that was surely the point - something for eveyone.
One thing I think it did miss was a celebration of British classical music. This needn't have been high brow - a five or ten minute medly of our favourite "Last Night of the Proms" tunes would have been recognisable to virtually all.
