Tennant’s Absolute Gold
In a work of ‘Absolute’ genius David Tennant added some thespian hilarity to the Olympic celebrations with this spoken word version of Spandau Ballets immortal ‘Gold’ for DJ Christian O’Connell’s Olympic ‘Spandathon’.
After pledging to play the song for every gold medal won the Absolute Radio DJ played the song 29 times for our triumphant athletes at London 2012 between 6am and 10.30am BST on Monday 13 August.
Dedicating his performance to fellow Scott Andy Murray – who stormed to Olympic gold in this year’s Men’s Tennis Singles, as well as silver in the mixed doubles alongside Laura Robson – David wasn’t the only performer to offer their unique take on song, with original singer Tony Hadley playing a live version in studio.
